Thank you everyone for keeping us informed.

Covid Update Tuesday 15th March: Thank you so much to those who are informing us when students return the POSITIVE Covid test. We definitely are seeing more students testing positive and know this adds huge pressure at home. We also know those having to isolate as families are being creative in making either the 10 or now 7 days pass as smoothly as possible. 

Today we received a huge supply of facemasks which we available in all classes if students require them. 

The Office will continue to be closed during the week and if you need to make contact please leave a message, email or ring directly to my cell phone. 

I really want to acknowledge the way all our staff no matter what role they are fulfilling are putting the learning of our learners first. We know we will continue to have disruptions with staff being affected by Covid and really celebrate the way students are being able to adapt to these challenges. 
We are working through getting learning packs out to families and know there is class learning getting out via email, seesaw, and google classrooms.

We really appreciate all the offers from our community to pick up areas that we may need support in. It is amazing to receive emails or phone calls asking how you can support us as a School.
