Online Learning '21
I am so proud of the way our students and staff have embraced this unusual return to school this Term and are thriving through our Online Learning ’21 program. It’s been great to see dynamic and creative digital classrooms across all subject areas and I thank our staff for their professionalism in adapting quickly to this new teaching and learning environment. In our Teaching and learning section below you can see examples of the learning activities undertaken as part of Online ’21.
As you would be aware, the Sydney Lockdown has been extended until July 30. Throughout this period of online learning, I will be communicating with families regularly on a Thursday through the Communication to Families update and through this fortnightly newsletter.
Welcome to the new Director of Teaching and Learning
I would like to warmly welcome Louise Millar, our new Director of Teaching and Learning. Louise has commenced at the College in unusual circumstances and I commend her for the way she has adapted and already shown leadership in these first few weeks of Term. A profile on Louise is below in the Teaching and Learning section.
