From The Principal
Greetings all! I hope that everyone is doing okay in these crazy times. Each couple of days we are being given clear instructions from the Department of Education based on the best advice from the Health Department. We are still open for business, but in a slightly altered model. At present we have about 60% attendance. These classes are still covering the curriculum well and in a fairly normal manner. We have had to make some staff changes due to everyone’s individual situations. Ms Murray will be working in the office providing support for the families who are home schooling. Please keep checking the Schools webpage and Connect for updates.
CoVid19 update 23/03/20
Within any community or profession there is a variety of opinions. It is important that we take our advice from sources best situated to have the complete picture on these matters.
The Department is working closely with the Department of Health, particularly Dr Andrew Robertson, the WA Chief Health Officer. We will continue to follow their expert advice.
The Australian Health Protection Committee (AHPPC) releases regular updates. The latest can be found here.
On 22 March State Premiers and Chief Ministers agreed that at this time schools will remain open through to the end of the current school term to support students whose parents choose to send them to school. This does not alter our previous advice.
It is true to say that things are challenging for everyone at the moment. I hope that you are going to get through the next few months with as much calmness as possible.
Week 9: When things go wrong I talk about it truthfully.
Week 10: I am organised, on time and ready to learn.
In weeks 7 and 8 of this term we were lucky enough to have Jordan, a Junior development coach from Golf WA come out and teach our students in years 3-6 the basics of golf. Jordan used a modified approach to Golf to suit the needs of our students ages. He set-up a range of equipment including different sized clubs, targets, softer balls and turf cut-outs for hitting the balls off of. The students were coached two lessons each in the two weeks given. Feedback from the students were that the Golf lessons were fun, different and something many of them wouldn’t mind taking up outside of school. Each student received a flyer on where they can sign up to do more Golf sessions outside of school if they are interested. Hopefully we will see Jordan and MyGolf back next year.
