Collection of School Books We hope everyone is well! Continued thanks to both children and parents for your ongoing engagement and support with distance learning. We’re delighted to see many of you actively sharing and interacting with teachers via the online learning platforms. Here is the newest whole-school video message.

We are ready to distribute school books to families. This will help facilitate distance learning for the remainder of the year. Children will be able to use the books they are familiar with, and this will reduce the need for printing documents at home. We also will be able to give out books for reading. Books that were borrowed previously can be returned, and new ones can be taken home. We will set aside any books returned for a minimum of one week before they are distributed to other families. We also will be able to provide copies and other stationery as required. It is optional for parents to come to the school to collect books.

The school will be opened for two-hour periods according to class. See the timetable below. If the time does not suit you, please contact Matt who will be happy to make other arrangements. Please queue outside your child’s classroom at the exterior door. We’d ask everyone to follow physical distancing guidelines. For families with siblings in more than one class, we will assist you in collecting the books for all your children in one visit. One parent/guardian at a time will be able to collect the books, which will be organised and ready for collection. A staff members will be present to answer any questions. We’d ask that only one person from each families comes to collect the books. Staff will wear masks. Parents/guardians are welcome to bring their own mask to wear. We will provide hand sanitiser. If you have any questions or concerns, please reply to this email.
