Wellbeing and Engagement
During this time of remote and flexible learning we are very aware of the potential effects of social isolation and change, both for your children and for your family as a whole. We hope that the Student Wellbeing Day last Friday was a chance to draw breath and just enjoy some simple activities.
There are a wealth of community and government groups / organisations that are available to support you and your family at this time, many are new services specific to covid19 support. See below. As you know we are attempting to monitor your child’s wellbeing through daily wellbeing check-ins, however if you feel that you have concerns around how your son or daughter is traveling please reach out to us – through Seesaw, or email or phoning the school, or contact one of the organisations listed.
We are so pleased to have some set dates and timelines around the return to on-site learning for all of our students and we are looking forward to welcoming back Foundation – Grade 2 on Tuesday 26th May.
