Newsletters and Important News

Bloom where you are planted

Every month a magazine style newsletter ‘Bloom where you are planted’ is produced and circulated to our families via the SkoolBag App. This magazine is more than ‘a newsletter’ as it truly captures our wonderful school, the children and the great pride that exists.

COVID-19 Important Information

On 7 April 2020, the State Government of Victoria announced to increase physical distancing across the population and slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), children in both Government and Non-Government schools should move to remote and flexible learning and care at the commencement of Term 2.

Beginning in Term 2, all students who can learn from home must learn at home for the duration of Term 2, apart from children whose parents are essential workers, children who are vulnerable, children who are not able to be supervised from home and on days when no other arrangements can be made.

SFdS will commence Remote Home Learning on Wednesday 15 April 2020.

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.
