This term has certainly been one with a difference. Our children and their families have survived very different times and have all done an amazing job. Families deserve a huge congrats and thanks for staying the cause, for working with us to ensure learning continued.
Remote Learning Remote learning was incredibly testing and was a challenge to many. We are all different. Some families enjoyed remote learning while other were not so keen. Some children enjoyed the different way of learning while others preferred the classroom here at school. However, it was unanimous, all children missed recess time and lunch time out side, engaging in play with their friends. It is great to have everyone back at school. We need to acknowledge our teachers commitment to teaching and learning this term as they too have been challenged with a new way. It is to their credit that our children were given the opportunity to continue learning and enjoy school in a different way. Our children here at Bourchier St have been lucky to have these dedicated caring teachers during this difficult time.
Reports Reports went home yesterday. You will notice that they are condensed due to the interruptions to learning this Semester. If you wish to discuss or raise any concerns please contact us.
Conferences We are offering parent student teacher conferences during the first two weeks next term through Zoom or a phone call. Please book in on compass if you would like to catch up with your child’s teacher.
