Remote & Flexible Learning

April 10, 2020 by carrumps | 0 comments

Hi folks,

Following advice from the Victorian Government on Tuesday 7 April, Carrum Primary School will be moving to remote and flexible learning from Term 2 (beginning with a pupil-free day on Tuesday 14 April).

This is a step all Victorian government schools are taking to help slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). This means that all students who can learn at home must learn from home. This is a very clear directive from the Victorian Government based on the advice of the Chief Health Officer.

We will continue to offer limited on-site learning for those students who need to access this, including for students on days when they are not able to be supervised at home and no other arrangements can be made. We will provide further information about this shortly.

The Department’s latest advice on coronavirus can be found at https://www.education.vic.gov.au/coronavirus

It is important that we work together and support each other during this challenging time. We will be in touch with staff and parents and carers shortly with further details of what remote and flexible learning will look like at our school.

In the meantime, you might find it useful to look at the Department’s Learning from Home website. It provides resources and guidance for teachers and parents and carers. https://www.education.vic.gov.au/about/department/Pages/learningfromhome.aspx 

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at carrum.ps@edumail.vic.gov.au

Cheers & Best Wishes!

Our Grade 5/6 students celebrated the 350th session of our public speaking club ‘Toastmasters’. The morning was filled with Speeches, Evaluations, Sizzlers, Topic Creators & Whiz Bang. In true Toasties style, we toasted the milestone with Vegemite on Toast!
