BURNIE CAMPUS (PRIMARY) - LEARNING@SCHOOL
WHAT WILL IT LOOK LIKE?
All students at school will be working from the same Learning@Home lessons plans and they will not be taught any additional work.
Normal classes will not be running, including specialist lessons.
Students will work in Learning Spaces of mixed grade-groups. We currently have a Kinder to Year 2 group in the Prep room and a Year 3 to 6 group in the combined Year 3/4 classrooms.
In each Learning Space social distancing guidelines will be adhered to with desks well-spaced and the dimensions of each room taken to ensure that we do not overfill the rooms.
A teacher and teacher aide will be allocated to these groups to supervise students as they work through the Learning@Home program; there will be no normal teacher-student classroom-style teaching sessions.
The staff allocated to a class will change each day.
Access to your child’s teacher will be the same for all students, regardless of where they are situated through email, TEAMS (for those set up) and phone calls.
Playground equipment will be closed for the time being and children will be using the basketball courts, undercover area and oval over the course of the day
We have structured the Learning@School program like this to maximize the health and safety of all staff and students, while at the same time allowing staff to effectively connect with and facilitate the learning of students who will be working from home.
Providing the same platform for all students, regardless of their physical location, means everyone’s educational needs are being met equitably and to the best of our ability in these unprecedented times.
Can I again strongly encourage all parents of students in Kinder to Grade 2 to opt for a hard copy learning pack? There are simply too many resources that students need to access and print and we would prefer to be able to provide those for you each week.
If any of this information has caused you to re-assess your child’s status for Term 2, we would encourage you to let the school know of this change by emailing
We continue to work tirelessly as a team to be able to bring you updates, Learning@Home lesson materials and resources, as well as constantly praying for each of our families. God is
good and faithful and there is a time coming when we will all be back together as a school community. Please keep in contact with your class teacher and me should you have any questions or would simply just like to chat.
If at any time you have concerns or questions, please feel free to contact us.
