As we begin transitioning back to the classroom this term, Sydney Catholic Schools is pleased to be shortly holding its next Family Forum, focusing on The Road Back to Face-to-Face Learning.

“We can’t wait to have our students back in the classroom, but we understand there will be some concerns and uncertainty about the transition back to face-to-face learning amongst some of our students and families,” our Executive Director, Tony Farley, said.

“We want to do everything we can to support our students through this period and ensure that the road back to face-to-face learning puts our students’ needs at the centre” – Tony Farley

“All our schools are actively working on plans to support our students’ academic, social and emotional transition and to ensure the return to school is a safe and positive experience for all,” Mr Farley said.

The Road Back

Hosted by our Executive Director, Tony Farley, the Forum on Monday, 11 October will cover what to expect during the back-to-school transition and how you can best support your child’s learning and wellbeing through this period and beyond.

There will be two sessions on the night: a Primary session at 5:30pm, and a Secondary session at 6:30pm.

“The education of our children is a partnership and these Forums are just one of the ways we want to engage our community of parents and carers so we can work together to support our children at school and at home,” Mr Farley said.

“As with the previous Forums, during this 30-minute session you will have the opportunity to guide the conversation through our live polling questions. We hope you will tune in!”

In case you are unable to join on the night, be sure to register and you will receive a recording of the proceedings post event.
