As we all know, 2020 was a tough year.
This was particularly so for our students and teachers who have risen to the challenges in a disrupted year that included seven weeks of remote learning due to COVID-19, and in some areas, that came on top of bushfires and floods.
For our students, this has been an unsettling time.
The government and department have recognised this with the announcement of a $337 million program aimed at ensuring that schools can identify students who would benefit the most from intensive support. This will be tailored to their requirements to ensure that students’ educational outcomes continue to improve in 2021.
The 2021 COVID intensive learning support program will provide small group tuition for students who need it most across NSW primary, secondary and specialist schools.
A number of Kellyville Public School students will be selected as a part of this program, which will focus on Literacy skills. The program will be conducted in small withdrawal groups during school hours. Members of our support staff will be running this program.
