SFdS commenced Remote Home Learning on Monday 20 July 2020.
On Sunday 3 August 2020, the Victorian Premier announced, on the advice of the Victorian Chief Health Officer, metropolitan Melbourne will move to Stage 4 restrictions to slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). Grade Prep to Grade 6 students will continue with remote and flexible learning for the rest of Term 3. All students who can learn from home must learn at home for this period of time.
The Victorian Government is set to outline a very strict criterion for allowing for continued onsite supervision during remote home learning.
SFdS appreciates with the reintroduction of the ‘Remote Home Learning Program’ there will be heightened levels of concern, anxiety and many challenges ahead for students, families and teachers. Please take comfort that the teachers at SFdS are passionate about what they do and I know that once again, they will continue to work really hard to ensure that they are providing the best educational experiences possible during these challenging circumstances.
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.
To assist our families, every family will once again be provided with a Remote Home Learning Program Information Pack together with a loan digital device for the duration of the remote home learning program.
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.
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.
