Ideas for the whole family
Ideas for the day, when having a break from set home learning tasks, include – cooking, puzzles, writing a letter to your grandparents, going for a bike ride, painting, making an obstacle course in the backyard, board games, science experiments, dress ups, read a book, music, playdoh, yoga, watch a documentary, prepare dinner and many more enjoyable and rewarding activities. Remember, we are in this journey together so don’t hesitate to share your ideas with other families on our social media pages, facebook and instagram.
One of the best qualities of our OLG community is our willingness to support each other. Our OLG P&F Business community sponsors are local, family owned businesses who have, and continue to, support our school. Now it’s our chance to support them during this challenging time.

Our Lady of Grace also has a wonderful P&F committee that connects us as a School community, and below is how we intend on doing just that in a time like this:
Doing good for others
As the parent or carer, it is important to take time for yourself during the day. This could be in the form of yoga, a hot cup of tea, exercising with your kids, a long shower – ‘you’ time is very important if your job is to look after the children all day. There are local gyms offering online exercise sessions. Connect virtually!

To ensure our children are cared for in this ever changing world, we are making student wellbeing a priority. Please assist us in making this happen by not exposing your children to social media sites, news, reducing their online screen and gaming time and using optimistic language when discussing the changing world and events. Our children absorb a lot more than we give them credit for! Establish a consistent routine that involves daily exercise, nutritious food (ie not snacking all day), and adequate sleep. Pray, daily, for those impacted and the essential services staff that are working tirelessly to keep us safe.
We have provided each year group with a framework suggesting how to spend your home learning day, via our Academic, Creative and Exercise (ACE) model. We hope it gives you an understanding on how a typical home learning day could look like for you and your family.
Sister Anita is still available if you would like to use her services. This time she will be virtual!
Online Safety & Cyber Bullying
The online safety of Our Lady of Grace children is paramount. To ensure all the necessary measures are in place, online student management, CEWA filters and content blockers from JAMF/Zuludesk, will remain open during normal school hours 8.35am – 2.50pm. The e Safety Commissioner website is a valuable resource for tips on how to stay safe online while home learning. A worthwhile reads is the Australian edition of the Covid-19 Global Online Safety Advice for parents and carers.
