We would like to thank all of our teachers, all of our children and all of our parents for helping make the great leap into online learning so successful. Of course, there were some initial technical hiccups, but now the majority of these have been overcome and everybody's coming to terms with our new way of learning. 

We are happy to share some of the successes of the week with you.

  • In the first week our teachers have moved from the very beginning stages of posting work, to filming their own Circle Times in Pre-School, sending video and voice instructions to help children follow instructions and holding individual and whole class meetings in  Years 3 -6. Their adaptability, creativity and dedication are without limits.

  • The children have been posting videos, photographs, voice messages and written or typed responses. We have seen them dance, build, experiment and even identify and label the different types of teeth they have.

  • Over 90% of our children are regularly submitting the learning that they are receiving.

We know that this weekend isn’t going to be like a usual one, but hope that it will give us all time to rest and relax. Please remember that teachers will log off at 15.30 this afternoon and will then be back online at 09.00 on Monday.

Best Wishes,

The Leadership Team
