Congratulations to our Year 6 students and PAG representatives for leading a very successful assembly last Wednesday. It was lovely to see so many faces, and our students enjoyed the opportunity to come together. Thank you to Ms Hamilton, Ms Paterson and Ms Seng for supporting our student leaders so that they can present this to you each week. We look forward to seeing you all again today, and every Wednesday at 2.30pm.
Feedback to Students
Thank you to our students, teachers and families for all of your efforts to ensure that we minimise the disruption to learning during this second stage of remote learning. Our teaching teams are continuing to work and learn together during team meetings and whole staff learning sessions. This term, our professional learning focus is on providing feedback to students that helps them to know what they have achieved and identify their next learning steps. This feedback is provided via MS Teams and in small group conferences.
We will continue to provide you with resources to support you and your family during the current Stage 4 restrictions. This week, we are providing you with the link to a webinar hosted by Dr Michael Carr-Gregg and information from The Anxiety Recovery Centre Victoria for a parent support group via Zoom each fortnight. This is run by two experienced facilitators and provides a safe space to share with and learn from other families.
