Only 12 months ago, we began the second week of Term 2 reconnecting with students and families having experienced our first COVID related school closure. Fortunately for school communities in South Australia this was short-lived, and we were able to continue the school year with face to face teaching and learning, remaining vigilant of a potential COVID outbreak. However, many of our valued extra curricular programs were impacted by COVID restrictions including sports, performing arts, camps, assemblies and whole school events.
Moving well and truly into the 2021 school year, we have been able to continue with face to face teaching and learning, and are gradually seeing the reintroduction of other school events and activities including school sports.
As the COVID situation continues to evolve, we remain mindful of the advice from SA Health and directions set by SAPOL to support the safety and wellbeing of our students, staff and community. At a school level this involves:
- Parents, carers, visitors and staff signing in using the QR codes when on school grounds – these codes are located on building entrances.
- Only entering classrooms at the permission of your child/ren’s teacher or school leader.
- Maintaining social distancing at all times when on school grounds and at the pick up and drop off points.
- You are welcome to visit the front office and sign in if you have a specific need. Please wait outside for a staff member to invite you inside.
- Students who are unwell must remain at home until they are well and symptom free.
- We continue with hygiene practices including hand washing. Additional cleaning is in place as per department requirements. Hand sanitiser is available in all learning areas and office spaces.
We again thank you for your ongoing support and care.
- Thank you to parents who supported the Reception – Year 2 swimming program last week – your help was greatly appreciated by our teachers.
- Best wishes to our Cross Country Team who will be competing at the Southern Heights District Championships at Belair National Park on Friday. Our committed group of 53 runners have been training twice per week in the lead up to Friday’s event – superbly trained by parent, James Ralston. Students will be running distances of either 2.5 and 3.0km, joining students from 14 other schools in our district. Thanks also to Mrs Pettman for coordinating the team. Go Craigburn.
- This coming Thursday 6th May we will be running our annual Mothers Day Stall – details here.
Best wishes to all for the week ahead.
