Alpha News, Term 2, Week 8

Return to On-Campus Learning

This current period of Remote Learning has once more tested our ability to keep all students connected and motivated during the learning process. These challenges aside, I am pleased with the way students have settled into this period of Remote Learning and with their adaptability. Learning outcomes and assessment tasks will be completed in a variety of ways to ensure all planned activities are completed efficiently.

While our Early Learning Centre students have continued onsite these past two weeks, it was wonderful to have our Years 11 and 12 students return to on campus learning this week and Prep to Year 10 students return on Friday.

With many schools endeavouring to educate their students remotely, we have continued to explore ways to place wellbeing at the heart of what we do. The activities designed by staff have included things as diverse as creative arts, indoor exercises, mood boosting music and mindfulness activities. Following on from the Resilience Project program we run in our School, we encourage all our students to practice gratitude reflections by keeping a written account of these as a visual reminder of the things we are grateful for.

My thoughts remain with all students, staff and families as you all care for your loved ones and support each other. I look forward to everyone returning to face to face learning for the rest of the Semester.

Exeat Weekend

With the Queen’s Birthday public holiday ahead, please note that the school will be closed on Monday 14 June and reopen on Tuesday 15 June.

I wish everyone a relaxing mid-winter break.
