In the event of school closure…

In the event of the school closing, it would be beneficial to continue assisting your child during the school term with their learning. This may take many different forms depending on their age and the family situation. Parents are encouraged to assist with supporting their child by practising literacy and numeracy skills that will benefit their overall learning.

Home reading is strongly encouraged to continue. All students have been sent home with additional reading resources from the school library.
