Term 2 will look similar to the end of Term 1 with students expected to stay and work from home. Schools remain open for staff and those families who are essential workers. Students that need to attend school will participate in the on-line program which has been set for all students. Students at school will not have their regular teacher teaching them in Term 2.

At time of publishing there is no new information for schools from the State or Federal Government for Term 2.

In accordance with the Director General’s instructions for Term 2:

  • All public schools will remain open.
  • Parents are encouraged to keep their children at home. Those who need to send their children to school to maintain employment, children of essential workers and those who require schools to support them overcome particular vulnerabilities, however, may choose to do so.
  • To ensure that all students’ needs are met, staff will be present on school sites.
  • All students will be taught: those attending schools and those learning at home.
  • Student wellbeing remains a priority, notably for our most vulnerable students.

I would like to thank the whole Vasse Primary School community for your amazing support. We have been overwhelmed with emails and messages of support. I am extremely grateful and fortunate to have such a dedicated staff who are working in the best interest of the students. We wish the whole community a safe holiday break. We are anxious but also excited to start Term 2 and even more excited to welcome all of the students back to school when schools reopen. Take care!

All other information as per previous advisories.
