Good afternoon families,

Things are definitely getting back to normal at Woodland Grove. We have 78% of our children coming to school with lots of our Learning at Home families telling us they are planning to come to school next week. We are having lots of fun at school with very happy children enjoying catching up with their friends and teachers.

We are keeping our school very clean with extra cleaners working throughout the day to clean common use areas and touch points. Children and staff are washing hands and using hand sanitiser throughout the day. Our play equipment is cleaned after every break.

A BIG thank you to all our families who are dropping off and picking up children at the school gates. It is very different to taking to children to classrooms. Our Woodland Grove students are coping with the change really well and are happily going to class independently. Our wonderful team of Education Assistants and Teachers are providing support for struggling students to enter class and join in.

For those of you who are Learning at Home next week please remember to email the school so that we can print off the Department of Education work package for you. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any queries or concerns.

Thank you to those of you who drive to school to pick up and drop off children. We appreciate the courteous way you are using our car parks. We particularly appreciate the fact that you are parking rather than dropping children in the middle of the car park. It is much safer for our kids. The difference has been noticeable.

A reminder that our Pupil Free Day planned for the 2nd June has been postponed until Term 3. We will advise our community of the new date after consultation with our School Board. It is best for our students that we continue with a consistent approach to school attendance and routine.

Lastly HAPPY MOTHERS DAY to all our beautiful mums. Wishing you a wonderful day on Sunday. I hope you are all spoilt. I am looking forward to a family picnic and enjoying some time with my daughters. Unfortunately, my Mum lives in a different region in the Wheatbelt so we will be spending some time video conferencing her on Sunday.
