Welcome Back to Term 3
Welcome back to our school community and a very warm welcome to our new families who are joining us for the first time. I hope that all families have had a good holiday and that everyone is feeling refreshed and ready for another eventful term.
Students have settled back into their learning routines which has been pleasing to see and we are looking forward to another positive term ahead.
As we are all aware COVID is still a concern for us all and luckily at this stage we are in a state that is managing the situation quite well and we have not seen an increase in cases. Saying this we still need to ensure that we are following guidelines including social distancing and high levels of hygiene.
At this stage we are still holding assemblies without parents/caregivers and would encourage everyone to only come on the school grounds if it is essential. Parents are also still restricted from going into classrooms. If you need to speak to a staff member please contact us and we will arrange a meeting as soon as possible. Hopefully some of these restrictions will be further reduced in the near future.
If we were to see an increase in cases and high level restrictions are enforced again, please be reassured that LNPS is in an excellent position to once again provide high quality teaching and learning in an online learning platform. Fingers crossed we do not get to this stage again!
LNPS continuously strives to create the best possible conditions for learning, and an important element is our approach to student goal setting. Throughout the year students and staff engage in learning experiences where time is taken to discover strengths and the areas for growth that they would like to focus on.
LNPS goal setting focuses on all aspects of a student’s learning. Our sole purpose is to increase students' autonomy, ownership and self-regulation of their learning. Further to this, the collaboration between parent, child and teacher provides the opportunity to continue strengthening relationships.
This term students will reflect on their existing goals, celebrate achievements and plan for further growth.
Teaching and Learning Newsletters
On Friday 7th August Teaching and Learning Newsletters will be distributed to families. These newsletters will have a focus on the everyday operations of the school as well as an extensive outline of how we approach learning at LNPS.
Newsletters will have more of a focus on 'how' students will learn and less on the 'what'. Parents/caregivers who would like further information regarding the content that is covered at each year level the ACARA website outlines the Australian Curriculum.
