Dear parents

I appreciate the way in which you have all allowed us as a school to go about our planning for Term 2. I would like to share with you the structure this is going to take:

1. We will be providing all activities via Connect
2. We will also be providing access to all activities via hard copy work packages for those parents that have requested these.
3. We are minimising the requirements of access to technologies as we realise that many families will not have access for their children throughout the day.

For the beginning of next term, on the evening of Monday 27 April, all activities for week 1 will be made live on Connect.
On the Tuesday morning 28 April, all children will receive a pack delivered to their home address, with a "starter pack" for the term. This will be provided to all students whether they requested hard copy resources or not. It will contain a scrap book or exercise book for students to use to complete activities, resources teachers feel will be required on an ongoing basis for the term, as well as any materials we felt it unviable to print at home.
Also on the Tuesday morning, hardcopy packs will be delivered to those who have requested them with the activities for Week 1 of term.
I would like to provide the following guidelines which will be reinforced in a future communication:

1. There is no expectation that parents will necessarily have children complete these activities in any particular order.
2. There is no expectation that parents will be required to "teach" although, especially in the younger years, there will be a requirement for you to support your child in the organisation of and explanation of the activities.
3. We will be providing the equivalent of 5 activities per day for students to complete. These activities will take a maximum of 50 minutes each. Many will take much less than this. As such, there is no requirement for students to complete a "full school day" each day.
4. If there is an activity you cannot complete for whatever reason, this is fine and move onto the next one.

We have been really clear about trying to keep things interesting, accessible and clear and obvious. We are focussing on engagement and as such, will appreciate your support in ensuring your children try their best to access these activities.
More information to follow.

Well done to these students and good luck for the school year.

Peet Wins 
Roleystone Community College held its annual Interhouse Swimming Championships for Year 3- 10 at the Armadale Aquatic Centre on March 10 and what a fantastic day it was.
The weather was glorious and the students enjoyed a wonderful day of good sportsmanship and great competitive swimming, and were cheered on by family, fellow students and staff.
This year Peet took the honours, winning for the first time in a long time, and coming in over 300 points clear of second place Chevin. What a great win for those students, who all enjoyed the swim events they entered.
A big thank you to Physical Education Specialists Mrs Markovic and Ms Jackson for organising and running the carnival, to their team of staff and parent helpers, and to all the family members who came to watch and cheer on our students. It was really appreciated. 

The final results;
1st      Peet           1529
2nd    Chevin        1221
3rd     Raeburn     1165
4th     Croyden      1067
