Dear PNE Parents,

Welcome back for another round of remote learning. Although these are not ideal circumstances, we are looking forward to building on the successes we had with your children last term.

Thank you so much for the support you offered over the last remote learning phase. We appreciate how challenging it is to facilitate your child’s learning from home and will do everything we can to make it as easy and enjoyable as possible for you and your children.

Thank you to the parents who responded to our survey. We have taken your feedback on board and used your reflections to improve our remote teaching program for Term Three.

Here are some important details about how remote learning will operate during Term Three.

  • Foundation to Grade Four will continue to use Seesaw. Teachers will provide new home learning codes for this term.
  • The 5/6 area will continue to use Google Classroom.
  • Our primary method of contact with parents will be email. Please let us know if you need to change your contact details.
  • Attendance will be taken at 2pm. We require contact daily via email, Seesaw or Google Classroom to mark children present, unless another arrangement has been made with the teacher (such as picking up, completing and returning a paper pack on a specific day).
  • Class teachers will host at least two online class meetings a week. These will be timetabled and clearly communicated on a weekly schedule. Children are expected to attend class meetings, as this will help them to maintain a connection with their teacher and peers.
  • There will be additional online meetings for groups of students who are engaged in small group support programs. These lessons will be provided in place of a whole class lesson. For example; a child involved in the EAL program will not have any other reading task assigned for that day.
  • If children do not complete their learning for the day, they are not expected to ‘catch up’. We want all children to start fresh every day.
  • We understand if the children are unable to complete all learning tasks every day, or you need a day to unplug. Please communicate any problems you have with your child’s teacher so we can help you.
  • These are challenging times and many families are or may come under added stress during this time. The school is open and if you have any concerns or would like some additional support, please contact John-Mark Gook or Natasha Bird at the school office.

 Thanks again for your support in the transition back to remote learning.

We look forward to working with you and your children over the coming term.
