A Christian response to COVID-19

Mr Brett Hartley

The English minister and theologian William Taylor gave a series of talks at a Christian convention a few years ago entitled Understanding the Times. The world, at the present time, is hard to understand. The last few days have seen supermarket shelves almost stripped bare not just of toilet paper, but all sorts of food from tinned vegetables to fresh meat. International airline travel has almost ground to halt. Because gatherings of more than 100 people are not allowed, church services, weddings and even funerals are being cancelled.

The times in which we now live are unprecedented, frightening for many and a great challenge to determine how each of us should respond.

Coronavirus Information for Parents

If a student or community member suspects they have coronavirus they should call (not visit) their GP or ring the national Coronavirus Health Information Hotline on 1800 020 080. If your child is showing symptoms consistent with the coronavirus please do not send them to school. 

If you haven’t already advised us that your child/children are staying at home at the moment because of risks posed by the coronavirus, please advise us using this google form. Students who are learning at home can access learning through the Junior School Hub or subject specific Google Classroom sites. Because teachers’ workloads have increased substantially as they continue to teach children who come to school, provide work for those who are at home and prepare for a possible school closure, teachers will not be able to send personal emails to parents providing work for students who are self-isolating.

Managing Online Learning

Mr Paul Carter

We are certainly in unusual and challenging times. As a learning community we are finding ourselves planning and implementing for a situation that we have never done before. At the moment, our teachers have been working really hard to prepare and teach effective lessons at school as well as post work online and prepare for online learning for future weeks. There’s been new things to learn and we are doing the very best we can to cater for all learners in these circumstances. Please be patient with us as we work together to deliver an engaging online Christian education. Your child’s health, wellbeing and academic progression is important to us.
