3rd April 2020

Today is the last day of Term 1. I hope you are all able to enjoy a satisfying family time. I am looking forward very much to seeing everyone when we are able to resume classes.

On Monday April 27 we will put lessons on our website with suggestions of timetables, extension work, daily check in and assessments.

In the meantime I hope that students are able to keep reading, writing daily journals, drawing, practising their instruments, even continuing their maths books. Science projects, typing practice, coding etc. All primary and secondary students have their teacher email addresses and their own passwords.

Next term in English in our writing we will be continuing the theme of heroes. Research and reading about the Greek Norse and Biblical stories would be a good introduction. We will be suggesting a number of sources.

This term we have had a nine week term rather than the ten weeks you have paid for. This will be accommodated next term.

With warmest regards to all.

Wilma

March 27th

Dear Parents and Students,

Following the Premier’s announcement, we will close Lambert School to students today. All students should take work home and follow a set timetable for the next week. The teachers will be at school and may be contacted on the school number. All students have their teachers emails.

Changes and updates will be on the School’s website but do not hesitate to ring on the school number.

If schools are not able to reopen after the school holidays on the 27th of April we will be teaching online. Details will accompany the reports, which will be posted on Wednesday April 1st.

Best wishes,

Wilma

Today the State Minister for Education, Jeremy Rockliff announced that April 6 to April 9 will be student free days in Government Schools. As we are following government advice we will begin our student holidays on April 6 assuming that schools will resume April 27.

If schools are closed for longer we will issue our students with a learning package and their teachers emails. Students will be able to ask for help, more work etc. It is assumed that in the event of schools closing students will follow a routine of study at home. The school can be contacted on its usual phone number.

In the meantime students at school are working with engagement and pride in all their subjects. Cleaning, sanitising and good hygiene are being practiced. We are paying particular attention to well being, the security and happiness of all our community being of great importance.

Any changes to the above will be posted on our website.

 

Note home March 16, 2020

Corona Virus

Today the government informed us that Tasmanian schools should continue as normal. This could change. This advice will be reviewed by the National Cabinet on Friday. If your child is ill with a cold, cough, runny nose, or flu-like symptoms they should not come to school and be looked after at home.

If we are told to temporarily close the school, we will inform you and send a package of two weeks work in all major subjects for secondary students. Primary students will take home their maths book and diaries and first copy books with instructions.
