Update - 27/3/2020 Please refer to links for current information:Home_Learning_Information - Principal's_Report.pdfOnline_Learning_Handbook_2020_Student_Edition.pdfDear Chelsea Families,
Firstly I would like to apologise for the consent updates and messages. This is essential information, and I'm mindful we are providing clear and precise information to all of our families.
Schools throughout the State of Victoria will be closed from Tuesday, March 24 and school holidays for students will begin tomorrow at 3:30 pm. We will be provided with more information tomorrow regarding staff expectations at this time.
The School will be open as usual on Monday, and as more details come in tomorrow morning, I will keep the community updated. For those of our families who are already practising social isolation and as part of our commitment to providing remote learning opportunities, our home learning resources and plans are available on our school website.
Please refer to our School's website and follow the link to in the Learning from Home Resource section for some remote learning tasks that you and your child/children can access.
Not all learning tasks will be assessed. However, teachers can provide some feedback via our class dojo app. As well as the learning created by our teaching staff, there are other opportunities to explore the curriculum at the Department of education and Training FUSE website. https://fuse.education.vic.gov.au/
As remote learning becomes progressively probable, the DET have offered some advice, tips and resources to help parents and carers support their child's continuity of learning from home that is outlined in the link below
The remote learning we can provide right now will no doubt develop and become more sophisticated as time goes on, as will the way that we delivery this teaching to our students. This is uncharted territory for teaching and learning, so trial and error will be part of this journey. The wellbeing of our students remains vital, and we are trying to ensure that we have the right balance between academic learning and social/emotional develop. These are undoubtedly uncertain times, and we will continue to support our students and families in every way possible, if you need support, please don't hesitate to make contact with the School.
Let's practise social-distancing tomorrow to the best of our ability: no parent meetings or groupings where possible, 1.5 meters distance between people. No parent-teacher meetings scheduled.
I want to wish all our Chelsea families the best, please take care of your love ones, touch base with your friends, and be kind to all. Stay safe and strong together.
