Home Learning Resources


Term 3 2022 Learning at Home Update

 

Dear FWPS Families,


We are aware that we are still being impacted by students having to isolate due to Covid or Influenza.

Whilst some are too ill to engage in work tasks, many are asymptomatic and are keen to engage in learning from home activities.
This term, the Department of Education has provided the booklet in this link Home Learning Resources 

‘Resources to Support Students Learning From home- by Level’.

Please feel free to access this booklet should your child be required to isolate this semester.

 

You may also like to join the online Maribyrnong Library Service https://www.maribyrnong.vic.gov.au/library/Resources/Kids-eLibrary/Libby-by-OverDrive

or access Mathletics activities set by the teacher. Passwords and logins were emailed to parents at the start of the year.

 

We thank families for their support in keeping students who are Covid positive or displaying flu-like symptoms at home.

Kind regards,
Brendan, Liz and Carolyn

FWPS Principal Class Team
