We want to ensure the continuity of care, teaching, learning and support for all students during these everchanging times. As a result from Friday August 6 to Thursday August 12th, all students who can learn from home must learn from home.
Friday August 6th will run as a remote and flexible learning day. We will focus on checking in with students to ensure they are prepared for the coming week of remote learning as well as take attendance.
Tutoring, EAGLE and MYLNS sessions will continue online.
Athletics Day will be rescheduled. Alternative date will be provided once confirmed.
Variety Night rehearsal are postponed for next week.
All Morrisby Catch up interviews will be online. An update will be sent confirming dates and times.
All excursions and interschool sports for the week will be postponed.
All students will be learning from home except the following students are able to attend school for on-site supervision, but will also undertake the remote learning program:
- children of parents/carers who cannot make suitable arrangements to supervise children at home, including children of teachers in government schools who are required to return to work on-site
