Seamless Transition to Temporary Online Learning

It is hard to believe that, once again, we find ourselves in a COVID-19 lockdown situation and learning remotely. Well done to our students, staff and families for your ability to jump so quickly and agilely into this way of learning. It is certainly not what we were expecting, but we have dealt with it with our usual resilience and as much positivity as we could muster. 

Our teachers have continued to work diligently and conscientiously to prepare and deliver lessons to their students without missing a beat, which is no mean feat. Rest assured, your students are in good hands.

Thankfully, it would seem, that this lockdown is another short circuit breaker and we will all happily be back on site next week. At this stage, we will look forward to welcoming our Junior School students back to CGS on Tuesday 15th June. Our Principal, Mrs Fiona Williams, will be in touch with you via email if there are further changes.

Until then, please look after our cherished students, be kind to yourselves and keep your families safe and well.

The Learning Never Stops! 

Over the past week, our Preps have experienced learning online. Each morning we have been starting the day with a morning Google Meeting where students rolled playdough, or even followed step-by-step directions to learn how to draw different animals. 

Although we are not face-to-face, it has been a lovely way to start the day being greeted by so many little smiling faces!
