What an exciting start to the week we had as we welcomed our Year 2 – 6 students back to face to face learning at Star of the Sea.
The engagement of our students in our Home Learning Program (HLP) has highlighted their creativity, adaptability and resilience as learners. For our students, being supported by you, as parents, combined with the positive way that you have worked in partnership with our staff during their Home Learning Programs, has enabled them to take on new learnings with confidence. This was fundamental in connecting each child to their learning program and their teacher during the HLP, but also supported a seamless transition back to their classroom learning environment.
Being ‘back together’ on our school site does bring with it a return to normal routines, but it also brings with it the knowledge of what is now the ‘new normal’ for our school community.
The ability of our students, staff and parents to adapt to these new norms has been outstanding and is a credit to all in our community. You have each contributed greatly to keeping our community safe as you have supported these norms. I thank you for maintaining this vigilance and for your continued support in the weeks ahead.
Over the past months, we can be proud of all that has been achieved. So much of what we have achieved, and what we will continue to achieve, has been done by working together.
Working in partnership has meant that we have taken on board many new learnings that have challenged our knowledge, our resilience and our creativity.
Together we have faced the challenges with hope, resilience and faith.
Together we have experienced the very best of collaboration and commitment by all in our Star of the Sea community.
Together, we will continue to turn challenges into opportunities.
We are blessed to have such a committed, talented and professional group of teachers and school officers at Star of the Sea. They have worked tirelessly to ensure that every child has had the best possible opportunity to continue their learning.
It is endearing to witness the cooperation and commitment of all in our community.
Thank you for your support.
