It has been pleasing to see the majority of students who are attending onsite act so responsibly in the wearing of a face mask each day, since last Thursday. There have been very few students who have required a disposable mask from us. Attendance has also been excellent for our Year 11 and 12 students (VCE/VCAL) and Year 10 VCAL students.
Each day I have to report our attendance data for onsite to the region and it has been averaging 90-95% each day, which is most pleasing. We are also supervising 20-30 students in Years 7-10 each day and they are completing their remote learning under the supervision of one of our familiar casual relief teachers, supported by some of our integration aides. In addition, on some days these students are also supported by their Year Level Coordinator to ensure they are keeping up with the remote lessons and set class work.
During these strange and uncertain times it is still very important for students to understand the importance about living our school values in school and out of school in the community and the importance of modelling our core values at all times as representatives of this great school. Students will demonstrate that they are proud of their school by their actions and behaviours. For example, behaving appropriately, respecting others and working to the best of their ability in all online classes. For students attending onsite, wearing their face mask or face covering and behaving appropriately to and from school, in class and in the yard; respecting the environment by using the bins for their rubbish and working to the best of their ability in all classes.
