Return to Remote Learning
We returned to remote learning this week with a modified program based on your feedback.
Many of you have told us that the revised program is working better for you and your families. You will have the opportunity to complete another survey later next week so you can provide us with specific feedback based on your experiences in the first two weeks. We understand that these are very challenging times and I want to remind you to do what you can, when you can.
Feedback in Remote Learning
This is the process that we will be using to provide feedback to your children during remote learning.
What is feedback?
Feedback can be oral or written and provides specific advice to help students improve. Both teachers and students can provide feedback.
- Feedback from teachers to students
- teachers show students what they need to do to improve and show them their next learning steps
- Feedback from students to students (peer feedback)
- Students are supported by their teachers to provide feedback to their classmates according to set criteria. This helps students make objective judgements about others’ and their own learning.
- Feedback from students to teachers
- Teachers seek input from students to evaluate and plan learning programs.
During remote learning, feedback will be provided in the following ways:
Teachers will allocate certain tasks to be uploaded to Microsoft Teams each week.
- Photos of tasks assigned to students in their WebEx classes
- Reading logs
- Photos of some tasks from the weekly pack of worksheets.
Teachers will use Microsoft Teams to provide specific feedback so students (and parents) know what they need to focus on to help them improve.
Teachers will provide specific feedback to students in their small group lessons. There will also be opportunities for students to provide feedback to their classmates to help them focus on their next learning steps.
Remote learning sees teachers, students and parents working together. We will use regular feedback surveys to help refine the remote learning program. The next survey will be sent to you later next week.

Enrolments for 2021
The Department of Education has suspended all school tours so we will be using Webex to host virtual tours for parents and carers of children who are commencing Prep in 2021.
Tours will be limited to 4 families at a time and will run from 9.15am until approximately 10.00am on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
Please make a booking via this link https://www.trybooking.com/BKFDH and make a note of the meeting link.
With so much about this school term and social distancing restrictions still to play out, the PTFA quarterly meeting is postponed until Wednesday 19 August, 7.30pm on Zoom.
We hope that by then we can make some more solid progress on our social and fundraising objectives for 2020.
All are welcome to attend the meeting. If you would like to attend please email Ingrid Broberg at email@example.com. Ingrid will provide you with the details and the registration form that need completed before the meeting.
