As a school we support the decisions you make for you and your family in regards to school attendance in these current difficult times, what ever that decision is, either to send your children to school or keep them home. The decisions you make are considered and in the context of your own family and unique circumstances there is no one size fits all in these situations. Please do what you think is the best for you and your family and know that we as a school respect and support your decisions
We are preparing to support learning at home. Learning Packs that support online and offline learning at home are being put together as I write. I have created a Learning From Home section on our website and this will be populated as we move forward. The URL for this is, https://glenhuonprimary.education.tas.edu.au/learning-from-home it can be accessed from the link at the bottom of the frontpage of our website. Teachers are undertaking professional learning this evening to learn how to use CANVAS as a learning tool.
The AGM is definitely postponed. When things are settled we will think creatively about how we can go about a meeting. Thank-you for your understanding in this matter.
A very big thank you for those families who have donated easter eggs and returned their tickets. Due to the uncertainty of these times and the number of children being kept at home we will be drawing the raffle early.
PLEASE FORWARD YOUR DONATIONS AND TICKETS TO THE OFFICE BY THIS FRIDAY 27TH MARCH.
We have had a fantastic first few weeks with the amazing new members of our school community. We have settled into routines well and everyone appears to be enjoying making new friends and sharing new experiences both in and out of the classroom. Last week we had our first ‘buddy’ afternoon with Ms Munro and the Grade 3 class. Our buddies showed us how to play safely in the bush playground. We learnt about where we could play, where out of bounds was and what were safe games to play and how we can create using natural resources, such as cubbies.
Nurse Emma also came to Kinder for Harmony Day. We each coloured a person which represented us. Nurse Emma added ours to all the other ‘people’ from the other classes which is displayed in the office area. ‘Each one of us is a part of the whole school’, Harmony Day is definitely very timely and fitting for us to celebrate and think about.
