May 2020 | Term 2
Mrs Nicola Taylor
From the Principal
Welcome to our PLC Pathways newsletter
Term 2 has been very unique for our Pathways students. We are constantly amazed at how our girls and boys have adjusted to the changes of life and coped with the uncertainty around the COVID-19 pandemic. They have shown great resilience facing the challenges before them, and appreciation and kindness towards staff who are working hard to provide consistent and stable learning opportunities for them. We see them growing and building quality characteristics that are valued in the Australian education system and working towards milestones in their own education.
We hope you enjoy this edition of our Pathways Newsletter.
Lessons outside of the classroom
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, school activities have been limited. While face-to-face lessons were not available for most, our Pathways program was fortunate to be able to continue delivering classroom experiences to our students from the beginning of the term. Moreover, we are grateful to be able to provide practical lessons such as Food Technology and PE with the support of our staff. This not only balances their school days, it also provides opportunities for them to learn practical English through various subjects and hands-on activities.
Virtual school life
PLC Pathways is unique as we provide an authentic school experience that only Australian students would have in an independent private school. In this case, our girls were able to participate in a variety of virtual activities run at school while the rest of the school was doing online learning. Even though the physical contact to other students has been reduced, they had the chance to meet more people at once by enjoying:
Filming for the assembly
Virtual Athletics Carnival
Virtual sport challenges
PLC Pathways understands the worries and concerns students and families have in the current situation. While we are continuing recruiting students for Term 3 2020 onwards, a Segue Course is being developed to assist students enrolled with us who are not able to enter the country while the border is closed. For more information please contact our enrolment office.
