As we continue with remote learning, we are continuously building and developing as a community. Learning and discovering new challenges along the way and working together to improve our strategies in supporting the young people in our community. At this stage lockdown is set to continue, with an onsite return date of Friday 3rd of September. We should all take some minor comfort in the fact that we have come so far and learnt so much that we are ready for any extensions, with limited change or disruption to our students. Fingers crossed we return to onsite learning soon.
This past Wednesday was PCC’s first Lockdown Well-being Day. Students and families sent us through some really positive feedback. It is important that we take time out to not only recognise the impact that this time has on our children, but also take positive steps towards helping them identify and cope with it. By providing this outlet, we hope that our PCC community took the opportunity to have a positive day for their wellbeing.
“Can you make the wellbeing Wednesday every week because as well as doing the tasks i had lots of fun doing sports in my back yard and off my screen. I felt relaxed and happy. Better than any other day of remote learning.” - Zoe- 3/4K
As some of you may have seen, we have officially opened our new playground. Whilst it has been unfortunate that not all the kids have been able to play on it, we look forward to them being able to enjoy it when we are all back on site. We are also commencing works for the re-surfacing of the other school playground. This surface has been sinking, uneven and over time has become a safety issue. As such, we will be replacing the surface over the term break and this should also be back open early next term.
Despite remote learning PCC are excited to be celebrating Book Week next Friday 27th August. We are inviting every student in every year level to dress up as their favourite book character and get online with their teachers and peers to celebrate. We ask all parents to get involved in this too. The more the merrier. It is the small things that can make the days more engaging and fun for our little people.
Thats a wrap for us this week. Stay safe and keep your eye on current exposure sites to ensure you do your bit! Victorian Exposure Sites
