The notion of school has changed significantly throughout the year and I want to thank our families for working with us as we adapt to supporting our students’ learning in these challenging times. I want to thank our teachers and support staff for their professionalism and care and for the flexibility that they continue to show each day. We asked for your input about your experiences of remote learning in Term 2, and we listened to what you told us. We have received many messages of support for the improvements that we have made to this term’s program and we are keen for more feedback as we near the end of the second week of remote learning. We would be grateful to you if you could complete this survey which will remain open until next Tuesday the 4th of August.
You may choose to fill out one survey for your family or complete individual surveys for each of your children. Please use the following link:
