School Term 2 – Update
3 April 2020
We understand how important it is for parents and students to know what is planned for learning for Government school students for Term 2.
Tasmanian Government school students will finish for the Easter break on Friday 3 April.
Teachers will stay at school between 6-9 April to undertake professional learning and prepare at-home learning materials for Term 2.
Term 2 will now commence on Tuesday 28 April for students. Monday 27 April will be a student-free teacher preparation day for school staff to allow them to adapt their planning to whatever the current COVID 19 situation may be at that time.
The intention for Term 2 is for students to continue to learn at home where possible, with teachers leading this learning.
Schools will still be open for students but only if your circumstances mean that you are unable to supervise (eg work commitments) or support your child’s learning at home.
Each week, teachers will provide an overview to parents of what the student’s days should entail and will provide activities to support their learning. These activities will align with the current Australian Curriculum and may be online, offline or a combination of both. Teachers will be in regular contact with students.
This situation will be regularly reviewed based on Public Health advice and updates.
We thank everyone for their patience and support as we navigate this together.
