Year 12 Term 3 Update

Friday 09 Jul

Good Afternoon Parents and Students of Year 12,

Firstly, we would like to recognise the challenges associated with the current uncertainty due to the ever-changing Covid landscape and we know that this is far from ideal. Our priority at this difficult time is to ensure the learning and wellbeing needs of all students, in particular Year 12 students, remain our primary focus. Our Year 12 class of 2020 demonstrated that we can overcome these challenges by working closely together and that is exactly what we intend to do again in 2021.

We would like to provide you all with clarification about the arrangements of teaching and learning at Cronulla High School for Week 1 of Term 3.

• The Premier’s advice is that students should be learning from home and only attend school if adequate supervision cannot be provided at home

• Work will be provided to all students in line with timetabled lessons before the start of each school day via eDiary. This means that on Tuesday 13th July lessons will be provided for Week 1A Day 2 and so on for Week 1

• Teachers will use eDiary to direct students to any learning platforms they need to utilise

• Staff will be accessible to their students via email. In most instances, staff will respond within 24 hours (excluding weekends). In some circumstances, staff will need to acknowledge the receipt of an email before constructing a meaningful reply. This could take a longer period of time

• Students will have some video lessons throughout the week with instructions and links to be provided on eDiary

• Students are reminded to read the “Cronulla High School’s Guidelines for Video Sessions” which is attached to this email

At this stage the following applies for scheduled Assessment Tasks for the start of Term 3:

o Geography task has been postponed to Tuesday 27th July

o Extension History project is still due on Thursday 15th July

o Standard and Advanced English tasks are still due on Monday 19th July

o Community and Family Studies task is still due on Monday 19th July

o Extension Science project is still due on Thursday 29th July

o Drama Practical Trial Exam will go ahead on Friday 30th July

o Industrial Technology Multimedia project is still due on Thursday 5th August

• Please note that if the online learning period is extended the English and CAFS tasks will still be due on Monday 19th July via Moodle Upload

• The Trial HSC period will remain unchanged in Weeks 5 & 6 of Term 3

• The CAPA HSC Showcase Evenings scheduled for 19th & 20th July will be postponed

Students who are preparing for major works, language oral, practical and performance exams during Term 3 and are unable to prepare from home are permitted to attend school. These workshops are optional and teachers will communicate more specific details of times. The following schedule will apply for these subjects:

Tuesday

- Society and Culture

- Visual Arts

Wednesday

-Dance

-Music

Thursday

-Drama

Friday

-IT Timber & Furniture

-IT Multimedia

-Design & Technology


• Where these workshops occur at the same time as another subject’s timetabled lesson students will be expected to complete the set work in their own time

• When attending school students must adhere to the following Covid safe practices:

o Masks are mandatory in all indoor settings whilst at school

o Bring own food & drink as canteen will not be operating

o Normal school behavioural expectations, however, appropriate casual attire is acceptable

o If students are unwell they are not to attend school and if showing flu-like symptoms they will not be able to return to school until a negative Covid test result is presented

We encourage all of our Year 12 students to continue working hard and reach out to their teachers, mentors, Year Advisers or the school if they need anything at all. We are confident that you will still be ready to do your best in your HSC.

Stay well,

Tony Ibrahim

Principal
