Remote and flexible learning has certainly impacted us all and has set some new challenges for all staff at Koonung. One of the lovely things about Koonung SC is to witness the wonderful parent support that we receive and the letter below is a heart warming example of this.
Dear Koonung Secondary College Teachers, Education Support members and all staff
We are writing to thank you all for your extra time, effort, professionalism and care during these unprecedented times.
At all stages in the ‘move to’ and the ‘application of’ remote and flexible teaching and learning, a sense of calm and control has resonated via the purposeful and timely communication by teachers, coordinators and leaders at KSC.
A special thank you to Middle Years staff for their direct communications with our son, and to his year level cohort. They, and all the staff at KSC, have continued to keep students and the parent/carer community informed and feel supported, particularly over previous weeks.
It is in times of crisis where cohesive, clear and supportive leadership enables individuals to successfully manage change, and for teachers to deliver curriculum that continues to reflect the high quality of teaching, learning and individual care that we have experienced since being part of the KSC community at the beginning of this year, we are so grateful for this.
Finally, thank you again to all the staff at KSC for all that is being done for the student community. The hard work and long hours put into planning and delivering the remote teaching and learning doesn’t go unrecognised, and is very much appreciated.
