Shire Christian School's approach to remote learning

Our school has been working hard to care for students and families during remote learning, while maintaining a high standard of education. Take a closer look at our approach.

COVID-19 School Response

Parents will continue to receive email updates throughout remote learning. A record of all significant communication can be found on the COVID-19 page of our website, including helpful FAQs. 

Mr David Stonestreet

And thus we end our first two weeks of remote learning. Normally I would be encouraging students and staff in matters of school education, but in lockdown times our parent body have also joined the daily educational team (welcome!), so well done to all of you in working and guiding your children through the learning materials alongside our teachers. Our school now has nine hundred classrooms, and the campus stretches across a hundred or more suburbs, so it has been a broad team effort from all involved.

Music department begins term on a positive note

In such times as these, we seem to look towards our artists, entertainers and musicians to express with sight and sound what we as a collective struggle to put into words. I’ve heard from many students that whilst the past few weeks have presented unique and certain challenges, the simple act of picking up their instrument and playing it has been a much needed source of joy and escape.
