Let me welcome back all our students today as we resume ‘on-site’ learning. There was such a positive atmosphere in this school this morning, with teachers and students excited and eager to reconnect and share experiences. This has been a very difficult time for many students and families, and it’s great to be actually seeing each other in the same space after what seems such as long time. Not everyone found it difficult, of course, and we saw many students enjoy the independence of the program and thrive in the remote learning conditions. This period before the end of term will be devoted to re-orienting our Year 7-10 students, checking in on their wellbeing and reflecting on the experience so we can learn from it. There was so much innovation and effort put into the Home Learning Program from staff and students, and we need to honour that work by identifying the best elements and incorporating them into our future practice.
