Welcome to the last Weekly Wrap of Term 3.
Well done everyone on making it through such a tumultuous term. Remote and flexible learning is not something I would want to see again as an educator. To everyone in our community, congratulations on your efforts to make the best of a difficult situation. I am extremely proud of you.
Our students will all have experienced different emotions and learning conditions during this period. Some will have flourished and some may not. Pictured below is Year 8 student Kurt, back home in Darwin, engaged in remote and flexible learning FHC style, on TIO Oval, where this year’s Dreamtime match was played.
To facilitate feedback to us about how our students have coped throughout remote and flexible learning, on Thursday 15th October between 3.15 and 4.45pm. we will be asking each home group teacher to meet with a member of the sub-school or leadership team and to hold a virtual home group meeting with all of our parents. A schedule will be released on Compass soon.
This information will be very useful in setting the direction for the supports we will need to ensure a smooth transition back to face to face learning.
I have referred frequently via this forum across the year, on remote and flexible learning and would like to limit this week’s comments to ones of gratitude to our students, parents, and staff. Our community has shown tremendous resilience and commitment to learning. Our data indicates over 85% of course work has been submitted this term. In the circumstances, this is a wonderful achievement.
To all our Mums, Dads, and carers, well done and thank you for embracing our online platform and supporting our students. I hope you all have a relaxing break, that the daily numbers continue to fall, and life can begin to return to normal as we all return to schooling in Term 4.
