In line with direction from the Australian Government we finished Term 1 via a virtual platform. We are all responsible for keeping each other safe and our young citizens are an active part of that process and it is important that at this time the connections we have built through training, discovering and creating together are not lost – we are a community no matter the circumstances.
For Term Two, we will run an online session during usual class time to check-in and talk about mental health and to work through a series of activities in line with our training for this term.
Please be assured that we will continue to monitor government recommendations and as soon as we are able to we shall return to training as usual.
We understand that these are challenging times, and if you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to contact us on 0746989926 or firstname.lastname@example.org
