Dear Parent / Guardian,

RE: Re-opening of St Thomas the Apostle NS Rosegreen

I hope you and your families are keeping well.

As you are aware, our school has now been closed since 12th March due to the COVID-19 situation.  We are now hoping to re-open our school safely, in line with current guidance and recommendations.

Re-opening the school safely will require the co-operation of all members of our School Community – BoM, School Leadership, Staff, Parents and Pupils. We will all be called on to play our part in ensuring that re-opening of the school is done in a safe manner which prevents the spread of the virus and allows the vital work of Teaching and Learning to proceed with as little disruption as possible.

We have been working on our plan for the safe reopening of the school for some weeks now and have added a link below to the DES COVID-19 Response Plan for the safe and sustainable reopening of Primary Schools.  The Response Plan gives details of

  • Physical preparation, signage, hand sanitiser stations,
  • Advice, procedures and training for the safe return to working in the school for all school staff and pupils
  • General and specific advice on how all pupils, staff, parents and visitors will prevent the spread of the virus

Our BoM will keep you informed as to the progress of our re-opening plans and provide you with the information required by you to play your part in safely re-opening the school.

We are really looking forward to welcoming our children back to school and will be doing all that we can to ensure that the return to school is a safe and enjoyable experience for the children. We will be in touch with you again before school re-opens.

 

Le meas

We were delighted to welcome Órla O Dwyer to the school to tell us all about her experience playing Australian Rules Football in Brisbane. She brought her AFLW medal which she won with the Brisbane Lions earlier this year. She spoke to the children about her time in Rosegreen school and the importance of working hard in the classroom. We wish her all the best as she returns to Australia to play for another two years.
