Schools Coordinator’s Message


Covid-19 has created many complexities, insecurities and anxieties and we have all been trying to balance and deal with impacts on our lives. At the same time it has given us a genuine opportunity to consolidate and extend our communication strategies and structures with parents and guardians.

The return to face to face learning in schools in term 3 is an exciting time for students and teachers and no doubt a blessed relief for many parents. At the same time it is also a critical time regarding maximizing learning opportunities during and after this transition by creating a safe and supportive learning environment where students are challenged to strive for success.

During the time of Covid-19 restrictions, we ask that parents adhere to the following:

·         Do not enter school buildings but instead pick up students from the front door entrance

·         Do not send students to school if they are exhibiting any symptoms

·         Ensure that all students carry their own water bottles

The teaching staff in turn will endeavour to ensure that the following will occur:

·         Regular hand washing and use of sanitisers

·         Regular cleaning of school surfaces

·         Implementing social distancing


On behalf of the Schools Committee and teaching staff of the Greek Orthodox Community of SA, we would like to thank you for your continued support and patience during these difficult times and we look forward to welcoming students back to the classroom, resuming their learning experience from term 3.


All online Greek classes will break for the school holidays. The last class will be on Saturday, 11th of April 2020 and classes will recommence on Monday, 27th of April 2020 as scheduled.


We wish you all a happy Easter break.


Stay safe

    

Καλό Πάσχα και Καλή Ανάσταση.
