Work From Home

Posted on April 28, 2020 at 4:25 PM

Dear Parents,

Term 3 begins after the Easter break, Monday 20th April. Unfortunately, due to restrictions, schools remain closed. The teachers and staff of Glenmore NS are working hard to prepare work for your children to do at home. We understand that these are difficult times and that each and every household has different priorities at this time. However we strongly advise parents to encourage children to engage with the work sent home. A good routine will help your child. A little school work and lots of fresh air and exercise during the day will help keep your child motivated to learn. Please know that the teachers and staff are available to answer any questions or concerns you may have in relation to the school work assigned. They can be contacted by emailing them directly, or emailing the school at [email protected], where your message will be passed on without delay.

The most important thing at this time is our health and well-being. 

Keep safe.

Thanks

Again, these are just suggestions that you or your children might like to use. Most importantly is that we all stay safe and keep our loved ones safe.

Stay safe and stay well,

Laura
