FAQs for Parents

Do we expect your child to complete school work?

Yes. If your child is Learning at Home instead of attending school on site, they will need to engage with the Learning at Home program to the best of their ability.

We encourage parents to prioritise the 3 highlighted tasks over others. The completion of other tasks is encouraged but will depend on individual families.

How will we receive information about activities and learning?

A weekly overview will be provided for students. This will be sent out on a Friday, in preparation for the following week.

Will teachers be available to answer questions?

In short, we hope so, but this may depend on networks remaining up and running to handle the national demand and capacity. Parent communication with the classroom teacher needs to be through email or Connect.

If my child is ill will school work need to be completed?

Just like an absence from school, while your child is unwell, he/she does not need to do work. If your child is unwell and not completing the Learning at Home program, we ask that you register their absence via SMS 0437 312 688 or through the absentee form on our website.

What happens if my child’s teacher gets sick?

We will endeavour to let families know. If you have questions during this time, please send an email through to the school and we will support you.

Is my child expected to work to the timetable?

Where possible it is encouraged that students stay to the timetable, however as this may not always be possible, we encourage students to work their way through the work in their own time and order.  Parents may choose to highlight work as their children complete it in order to keep a record.
