Week 4 has been an exciting week in Foundation Phase as we welcomed back the Prep and Year 1 students to their classrooms. Walking around the campus it has been lovely to see classes back together, engaging in enriched lessons and students interacting with their peers. Although we have most of our students back in classrooms, we are still abiding by social distancing expectations with students’ desks being separated and friendly reminders given to wash hands regularly. Next week Foundation Phase will start up the home reader program again with individual reading books going home with students each day. Staff members will be ensuring that the covers of books are wiped down to slow the spread of germs. We are still looking for volunteers to help with this program, please contact the college if you are interested in assisting.

Although we have not met again for chapel, assembly students have still received their weekly awards. Please find this week’s awards video on your child’s home page on Learner.Link. Students who are working on campus have received their hard copy awards and those who are working at home have been sent their award via email.

We appreciate your ongoing support and value staying in communication with you and your family. Please advise us if you or your student’s learning mode needs to be changed or updated by emailing the college at groves@groves.qld.edu.au
