Given recent events interstate, another lockdown in SA remains a possibility.
The College seeks to provide additional information regarding the College’s Remote Learning Program.

Reception – Year 3

The online curriculum will be delivered to our students in Reception to Year 2 via the platform ‘Seesaw’ and ‘Class Dojo’ in Year 3.

The resources have been carefully designed to provide students with a range of learning activities that will continue to build their skills and knowledge in all curriculum areas as well as lead to assessable outcomes.

Students will also have the opportunity to engage in live online learning via “Zoom”. Zoom is a simple-to-use program that provides real-time face-to-face learning. Teachers will be Zooming twice per day, to explain, consolidate and clarify the requirements for Mathematics, Science, English and HASS. Families will be advised of the times. Teachers will also be available via email during all regular scheduled lessons. The Education Support officers from the Learning Strategies team will make email contact with the parents and students who receive individualised learning support to offer extra opportunities for support. Modified Mini Lit and Macq Lit programs will continue if there is an extensive period of Lockdown as well as Zoom support for some individuals and small groups.

It is important that students are NOT in front of a screen all day.

Zoom is a free service that can be downloaded at: https://zoom.us/
A short guide is available at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fMUxzrgZvZQ

If the school is required to lockdown for an extended period, then students should continue to work through the weekly planned tasks and activities which will be added when necessary. When “normal” school resumes, students are required to bring any completed work with them and we will continue all work in the classroom. We understand that students will work at different rates, and that in these difficult times, family situations can be very challenging. Students and families can be assured that teachers will be very flexible with regard to completion of work- our main aim is to keep students engaged in learning and to experience ongoing personal support from teachers.

If students are unable to engage with their learning due to illness, Parents/Caregivers are asked to register their student as absent via the College’s absentee line before 9:00am on the day of ‘absence’.

Students and families are encouraged to maintain regular contact with their teacher via email.
We thank you for your continued support during this uncertain time.

Yours Sincerely,

Andrew Panozzo

Director of Teaching and Learning

Students will also have the opportunity to engage in live online learning via “Zoom”. Zoom is a simple-to-use program that provides real-time face-to-face learning. In Years 7-10, teachers will be Zooming half the number of regular Mathematics, Science, English and HASS lessons during the week during sessions following the “regular” daily timetable. In Years 11 and 12, half the number of regular lessons per week will be “Zoomed” for all subjects, again, during sessions following the “regular” daily timetable. Teachers will contact students to set up Zoom sessions. Teachers will also be available via email during all regular scheduled lessons. The Education Support officers from the Learning Strategies Team will make email contact with the parents and students who receive individualised learning support to offer extra opportunities for support such as Zoom support for some individuals and small groups.

We understand that students will work at different rates, and that in these difficult times, family situations can be very challenging. Students and families can be assured that teachers will make every effort to assist students to complete assessable work- our main aim is to keep students engaged in learning and to experience ongoing personal support from teachers. Please note, however, that SACE submission dates will remain unchanged unless the SACE Board directs otherwise.

It is important that students understand that even though they are home, they are still required to engage with the teaching and learning and to complete schoolwork so that they flourish academically despite the circumstances.

If students are unable to engage with their learning due to illness, Parents/Caregivers are asked to register their student as absent via the College’s absentee line before 9:00am on the day of ‘absence’.
