Online Teaching Survey: Parents

Thanks to all parents who participated in the survey. The results and analysis of the survey can be found by using this link Online Learning: Parent Survey Results

‘Next Steps Interviews’ – the Zoom Option

Following the analysis of the recent parent survey on our online learning programme during lockdown, some parents indicated they would like the option of using Zoom to meet with the teacher of their child. The numbers asking for this option were not large, with the highest number per year level being 13 for year five and 10 for year six. The lowest number of parents wanting the Zoom option was two for year two. The numbers requesting the Zoom option for years five and six provides us with an opportunity to trial using Zoom as an option should parents wish to use this method of meeting with the class teacher during the next step interviews early in term three.

Before we make Zoom an option for year five and six parents we will conduct a trial with randomly selected parents to ensure any possible glitches in the system are identified and rectified before offering the option at the July interviews. Provided we are able to ensure a glitch free experience, we will then offer Zoom as an option for the year five and six interviews in July. We expect we will be offering limited numbers of Zoom times in blocks as we do not want teachers to have to be continually switching between face to face and Zoom interviews. Having three minutes between interviews already creates some pressure to be ready to start the meeting on time! After the year five and six wide trial we will assess this method of meeting, consulting with parents and teachers who were participants before deciding what to do next. ‘What to do next’ might be anywhere on the continuum from ‘not offering Zoom as an option to offering the Zoom option across all year groups at the next set of meetings.

Child Safety

To ensure the safety of our children please observe traffic regulations.
This includes: Not parking on no parking zones represented by the broken yellow lines and please park considerately so there is no blocking of the road by your vehicle.


While skateboards are not a permissible use at school, we note children bringing skateboards to school to use after school. Although there is an undoubted thrill of zooming (that words again!) down the hill on either Aberdeen Road or Beach Road, there are considerable dangers posed by vehicles coming in and out of driveways to those on skateboards who are, possibly, not in full control and are unable to stop quickly. While we do not wish to be the fun police, you may wish to speak to your child about the sense of skateboarding downhill and at speed down footpaths.

Pandemic Updates

We have no news to report and I guess that is a good thing! Hence, it is business as our new normal, namely: Hygiene, hygiene, hygiene followed by parents/caregivers being asked to use QR when entering the school grounds before and after school. During school hours parents/caregivers are required to come to the school office to register, as per usual.

Keeping Ourselves Safe

Through Keeping Ourselves Safe it has come to our attention that some Year 0-2 children are accessing Fortnite.

Some online games have recommended age restrictions and we would like to guide parents to the website Netsafe ( to support families with online safety.

Many thanks,

Constable Murray Fenton
