TERM 4 – arrangements for students returning to school - 

Dear parents/guardians/carers, Following the government announcement this week, the information below outlines the staggered return to school arrangements for our students in term 4.

Please note there is a slight adjustment to the staggered start & finish times for Foundation/Prep, Grade 1 and Grade 2 that was communicated at the end of term 3.

Consideration has been made of the many factors which will influence our students’ positive transition back to school.   Our focus during this transition period will be on:

  • getting students back into a routine attending school and being on time and preparing for end of year.
  • identifying and supporting the wellbeing needs of our students
  • providing opportunities for students to have positive re-connections with their peers, classmates & teachers
  • building learning stamina, given the significant period of time students have been away from the school environment
