Term 2 has started very differently for everyone here at Ss Peter & Paul's with our transition to online learning. Students and staff get to meet each other everyday through our Google Meets. Lessons are taught via video or live streaming.
"It's not the same as being in the classroom with all our friends but at least we get to see each other online everyday. Our teachers are making sure that we continue our learning and that we keep ourselves, our families and each other safe. We can't wait to be back at school."
Thank you to all our wonderful parents for the outstanding job you are doing!
Here's what some of them have to say about our Learning@Home Plan:
"I just wanted to say a huge thank you for being so amazingly prepared with the online platform and all the other changes taking place."
"This is a very confusing and stressful time for all parents but you have all made it a lot easier and the transition quite smooth! "
"I have been so impressed with our school."
"Thank you so much for your amazing efforts."
"Thank you for all that you and your team are doing."
"What a wonderful achievement our school has created by joining our community together."
"We are very proud parents that we are part of the wonderful school of SSPP and we thank you all for everything you are doing."
"I just want to say thank you for all the hard work and effort you have both being putting in keeping our children going during this very unprecedented time. We really appreciate everything you have been doing."
"(PMI) is doing an awesome job delivering these (guitar) lessons via Zoom and I have since signed up (our other daughter) as well."

Opening School Year Mass
It was a fabulous way to begin our year with our Opening School Year Mass last Sunday. To have so many students and families involved in the liturgy made it all the more special and a fitting way to introduce the school theme for this year: “Seeds of Hope”.

Ss Peter & Paul’s is a SunSmart School. We encourage you to apply sunscreen to your child during Summer. The hat is a part of our uniform and is compulsory for outdoor wear during the Summer months.
Overexposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation causes skin and eye damage, ultimately leading to skin cancer.
UV cannot be seen or felt. It is not like the sun’s light which we see, or the sun’s warmth (infrared radiation) which we feel. Our senses cannot detect UV so it can be damaging without us knowing. There is a huge variation in UV levels across Australia. The UV level is affected by a number of factors including the time of day, time of year, cloud cover, altitude, proximity to the equator, scattering and reflection.
A UV Index reading of 6 to 7 means a high risk of harm from unprotected sun exposure. Protection against skin and eye damage is needed. Reduce time in the sun between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. If outdoors, seek shade and wear protective clothing, a wide-brimmed hat, and UV-blocking sunglasses. While your child may not wish to wear sunglasses at school, a hat is a part of our Summer school uniform and must be worn outdoors throughout Summer.
For more information about being SunSmart, the following resources are very informative.
