The implementation of remote home learning will provide many challenges for students, families and teachers. I am sure that many families will have concerns about their child’s learning in these circumstances. Please take some reassurance in knowing that all of the children in Australia, and all around the world for that matter, are facing the same disadvantage when it comes to their schooling at the moment.
The teachers at SFdS are passionate about what they do and I know that they will continue to work really hard to ensure that they are providing the best educational experiences possible in these challenging circumstances. It is hurting our teachers that they will not be able to work face-to-face with the students each and every day to provide the educational program that we are accustomed to. It is also very important to remember, that all staff at SFdS are here to help and guide our families along the way, our families are not alone, as we are all in this together.
Our home learning program allows for flexible, self-paced, learning and will be enhanced by multimedia, as well as access to a wide range of on-line resources and activities.
Wellbeing and Home Learning Program
St Francis de Sales understands that this is a very unique situation the world is in and that remote learning may cause a significant degree of anxiety for you and your child. Working remotely will certainly present with some challenges, so please be sure to look after yourself and the people in your family.
St Francis de Sales will be providing families with a number of resources for wellbeing during this time of remote learning.
Remote Home Learning Portal
To support our families with Remote Home Learning, the school developed a Remote Home Learning Portal. The portal provides easy access to each year levels learning program together with resources. The portal site is updated regularly and every Friday afternoon the portal is loaded with the next week’s learning tasks.
