Dear Parents and Carers,
We value and appreciate everyone’s commitment to students during term 2. ACT public schools have continued to face workload pressures with higher than usual staff and student absences due to the ongoing presence of COVID-19 and seasonal flu in the community.
This has often meant school leaders and teachers are taking extra class time to cover staff absences.
The Education Directorate is supporting all ACT public schools to manage their extra workloads with two staff planning days in term 3. These days will give public school teachers time for lesson planning and administrative tasks that they can’t do while on class.
ACT public schools, years P-10, will hold staff planning (pupil free) days on:
- Friday 5 August 2022, and
- Friday 9 September 2022
If you have any further questions about our staff planning days, please reach out to our front office.
