Term 3 & COVID-19
We are nearly to the end of Term 3 after another period of Remote Learning and I’m sure that everyone is looking forward to the holidays. Over the next couple of weeks, we will provide an update for Term 4 once we have further advice from the Victorian Government but for now, we are planning to see everyone back from Monday 12th October.
In reflecting about Term 3, I simply want to thank our College community for the amazing support and understanding through this challenging time. In each and every College family home, there have been sacrifices made to keep our Victory and wider communities safe and I truly value this commitment. The ongoing support of our College families during Remote Learning has been amazing in working with our Teaching & Learning Enhancement Staff to enable our student’s learning to continue. It has been a tremendous effort from everyone in our Victory Lutheran College community – thank you so much.
R U OK Day 2020
We have acknowledged RU OK? Day today very differently to the past few years. Like any year, R U OK? Day is an important community event to highlight how we can support those around us every day. In a year like 2020, it is probably more important than ever to check-in with each other.
Remember if you feel like something’s not quite the same with someone you know – there’s something going on in their life or you notice a change in what they’re saying or doing - trust that gut instinct and take the time to ask them “Are you OK?” If someone says they’re not OK, make time to listen, encourage action and check in. That conversation could change, or even save, their life.
Yours in Christ,
Mr John Thompson
