New online resources
Today the Education Directorate has released a resource library to support parents and children with home learning. You can find a link to the resource on the Education Directorate website www.education.act.gov.au
Relationships are key to education and we want parents and students to remain connected to their teachers and schools. In the coming weeks, we will build more resources and ways to support continued education, in the event students cannot attend school for extended period. Please take some time with your child to explore the resources on offer.
