From the Principal
Dear Parents and Carers,
Well, we are certainly living in a time of constant change and uncertainty. Something that most of us have never experienced in our lifetime.
Given the current COVID 19 situation the health and safety of our children here at Christ Our Holy Redeemer continues to be one of our highest priorities.
You may have heard from our Prime Minister yesterday that, at this point in time, schools will not be closing. We have however implemented a number of actions based on recommendations from the Health and Education Departments. There are as follows;
- We will continue to promote good health and hygiene practices at school, asking children to wash their hands several times through the day but particularly after going to the toilet and before eating food.
- All excursions will cease until further notice. This will include camps and our visits to the local kinders and Early Learning Centres.
- The Sacrament of Reconciliation has been postponed next Wednesday evening.
We continue to respect a parent's decision to keep their child/children at home. As you will understand, our staff are busy teaching on a full time basis. Therefore, it is quite difficult to plan and distribute extra learning materials for students who are not attending school at this stage. If you choose to keep your child at home they may complete the following learning tasks:
Weekly homework requirements
Reading every day
Keeping a diary/journal
Creating a book or film review
Learning multiplication tables
Learning sight words or spelling words
Completing free online resources or games that promote learning in literacy or numeracy
