P and C news

Hi Parents and Carers                                                                 

As we find ourselves at the end of a heavily disrupted Term 3 we can all look forward to a different kind of break than we are used to and some certainty as to what Term 4 will look like. I hope you are all coping and finding the time to put your own life in perspective – the onset of the Coronavirus has brought into sharp focus many aspects of our lives that many took for granted. For our children, who have less experience and are often able to accept change easier, perhaps these times will allow them to forge ahead with innovative ways of seeing and inhabiting the world, free from our habitual and hidebound approaches. And for our teachers, we know they have learned much over the past few years about the limits of technology and the importance of actual presence – the myriad and often unquantifiable benefits of excursions, incursions, sports and events. I imagine for those youngest students, these interruptions have been hard for them and their parents, as the development of early, formative educational skills have been challenged by online delivery and lack of contact. The P+C extends our support to the teachers and staff for their diligence and dedication, and to you and your children too for your patience and understanding. May your children’s school holidays bring joy and relaxation to your family, and we hope to see you all in Term 4 as we return.   Morgan Boehringer P+C President
