This blog will be used for class notices or news reports on what has happened during the week.
I will be creating student blogs for Room 8 students during term one, so that they will be ready to use in term 2.
Hopefully your child has approached you and talked about how our school will be snupped for Ultra Fast internet (wi-fi) so that all classes can start learning with digital devices, like the Chromebook. If you have any question about digital learning please see me, especially if you have concerns about your child's learning progress.
