Learning in Primary

Jun 19, 2020

There have been many challenges this term for students, teachers & parents. Our community has been very disrupted. Term 2 has meant a cancellation of many sporting, musical and community events. We know that your support and understanding has meant that we have been able to comply with the government health guidelines.

Despite this disruption, we have been able to continue to be focused on learning in our classrooms. Each stage has maintained consistency and continuity with the culmination of learning being celebrated in Kindergarten with their TV weather reports, Stage 1 with the Ugly Bug Ball and Stage 2 with Earth Science Day. Stage 3 have been fully engaged with their democracy unit and discovering parliamentary protocols. Assessment and feedback have culminated in the Semester 1 reports and we are glad to have our specialist teachers and Learning Enrichment team included.

During Chapel times, we have looked at ‘How do we respond in times like these?’ unpacking hope, worry, peace, our thinking, the importance of community and family. During Assembly we have learnt and reflected on Reconciliation Day and Refugee Week and had a variety of students demonstrating NB=E with us.

We are looking forward to Term 3 and the relaunch of an exciting suite of co-curricular activities including CRU, sprint training, K-11 choir, Infants and Primary choir, 3-6 MasterChef, 3-6 Comedy, K-6 Art Club, 4-12 Robotics, 5-6 Robotics, 2-6 coding and Primary lunchtime clubs will recommence!
