I want to thank you again for your support throughout what has been a very unusual school semester. The COVID-19 pandemic is affecting our entire community and has presented us with extraordinary challenges in managing schooling during the first half of 2020. I am pleased that together, we have been able to make the best of this situation and ensure your child’s safety and continuity of learning.
With the regular attendance of many students being lower over this time, the breadth and depth of the curriculum covered throughout Semester 1 may have been reduced. For this reason, schools are not required to include A to E grades on this year’s Semester 1 student reports. It also means that your child’s attendance will not be formally reported, and any written comments may provide less information on their progress than usual.
In next week’s T.E.A.M. Messenger School Newsletter, I will provide further details on the modified information that will be provided in semester 1 student reports at the end of this term.
However, I’m pleased to advise schooling is once again returning to normal and our students are engaging in the regular curriculum, in their usual classroom environment.
As a result, Semester 2 reports, will reflect this and parents will be provided with the normal, more detailed information on their child’s progress and achievement in this document at the end of the year.
Thank you for your continued support and encouragement as we work together to provide the best learning opportunities for our students. As we progress, I’ll be sure to keep you updated with any new information.
