Reflecting on lessons learnt from Covid-19

As we come to the end of a very different semester I wanted to take the opportunity to reflect on some of the positives that the COVID-19 had provided.

Some of the positives for me included more frequent communication with parents about their child’s learning.  All of our parents did an amazing job during a really challenging time and all of us here at school have been blown away with how resilient and understanding our school community has proven to be.

A highlight has been the community engagement and spirit that was evident throughout.  It reaffirms how lucky we are to live within a community like this.  While we are excited to see the visitors returning it was nice to have the place to ourselves for that little while.

While there were certainly very real challenges for us at school in trying to navigate the learning from home we are excited to be able to get to the holidays and come back next term refreshed and ready to help our students to reach their potential.

Here are a few reflections from some of our students, some of which remained at school due to their parents being essential workers and some that only returned to school in week 6.
