School operations - Updated advice to parents and carers - 23 March 2020

Monday 27 and Tuesday 28 April 2020 have been designated as staff development days to assist staff in catering for students learning from home. 

Term 2 will begin as it finished in Term 1. The majority of NSW students will be learning from home. Schools will be open and operational for students that need to attend but where practical, parents are encouraged to keep their children at home.

Teachers will plan the same learning for students at school and at home.

From week three of Term 2, we will begin a managed return to school. The Premier and Minister for Education have announced a phased operating model for NSW schools during COVID-19. The new model will see students being reintroduced to some face-to-face learning on campus starting from week 3.

More information on the new model and operational changes will be provided to teachers, parents and students before Week 3 of Term 2 begins to let you know the plan for the remainder of the term.

Supporting continuity of learning for all students

Our staff have been working hard to develop a suite of learning resources and options for students to undertake from home. The Department has developed and will continue to develop resources and offer professional learning to help teachers with this task. Whether your child is at school or at home, the aim is for all students to access the consistent learning content provided by our school. This may mean sending work home, either with physical materials or by email, or by making use of one of our online platforms at our school.

Support for students at home

I encourage you to access the Learning from Home resource which provides practical advice to parents and carers on how to best create and support a productive learning environment in the home.
