Principal's COVID19 Updates

Remote Learning Plan 

At Applecross Primary school we are prepared for the potential situation of a lockdown in the Perth Region. Should schools be closed for a period of time, we will commence a period of Remote Learning. Please be assured that the wellbeing of students, families, teachers and the community will always remain our priority during this time. We will strive to keep connection between teachers, students and the community through the Skoolbag app and Connect.  

Teachers will provide learning opportunities for students through the Connect app. This learning will provide ongoing access to the curriculum for all students and be planned with the best available resources to ensure ongoing quality of learning. Remote learning will cover key subject areas and families should choose to complete these tasks over the period of a week in a way that best suits their family situation, working from home and their own children. 

Admin Staff and Teachers will be contactable by email and working to maintain positive and respectful relationships between our school and community during these times. Teacher wellbeing is also of upmost importance and we will support teachers to deliver learning whilst rationalising their workload and managing a new and unfamiliar learning scenario. In the event of a Remote Learning situation, you may like to consider; 

  • Setting up a learning space at home  
  • Having a routine for your child or children to work towards at home to keep some aspect of normality  
  • Access to devices that may be needed for learning experiences or to access Connect  

In the event of a lockdown a Skoolbag message will go to all parents with more specific details of the remote learning plan.
