Alternative Education Provisions (AEP)http://www.stpeterscaboolture.qld.edu.au/community-news/Pages/Alternative-Education-Provisions-(AEP).aspxAlternative Education Provisions (AEP)<p></p><p>This week we have had the opportunity to observe the resilience of our families and learners as we once again engage in Alternative Education Provisions (AEP). Similarly to Term 2 2020, our staff have been left in awe of the eagerness and flexibility of students as they adapt to learning in a predominantly digital space.<br><br>Our teachers already deliver and manage learning activities using a range of digital tools in the classroom. As we move into AEP, the tools that are utilised, and the way in which they are used, will differ slightly between year levels. By now, you would have received communication from your child’s (or children’s) teacher explaining what learning will look like in their class.<br><br>Over the duration of AEP, you may provide support for your children by:<br></p><ul dir="ltr"><li dir="ltr"><p>Establishing routines and expectations</p></li><li dir="ltr"><p>Defining a space for your child to work in</p></li><li dir="ltr"><p>Monitoring communications from teachers</p></li><li dir="ltr"><p>Beginning and ending each day with a check-in</p></li><li dir="ltr"><p>Taking an active role in helping your children process their learning</p></li><li dir="ltr"><p>Encouraging physical activity and/or exercise</p></li><li dir="ltr"><p>Checking in with your child regularly to help them manage stress</p></li><li dir="ltr"><p>Communicating any questions or concerns directly to your child’s teacher</p></li></ul><p>Our latest newsletter includes links to additional resources which may be useful for families:<br></p><ul dir="ltr"><li dir="ltr"><p>Tips for Parents, Guardians and Caregivers to support Primary Students</p></li><li dir="ltr"><p>Microsoft Class Team Meetings – Guidance for Students<br></p></li></ul><p><br></p><p style="text-align:center;"><img src="/community-news/PublishingImages/homelearning2.jpg" alt="homelearning2.jpg" style="margin:5px;" />​<br></p>
70th Anniversary Celebrationshttp://www.stpeterscaboolture.qld.edu.au/community-news/Pages/70th-Anniversary-Celebrations---Save-the-Date-July-30.aspx70th Anniversary Celebrations<p></p><p><p>Wow! What a celebration! We were so very fortunate to be able to mark our special milestone with such a significant community celebration last Friday. The blessings of St Peter and St Mary MacKillop provided the perfect weather and conditions on the final day before lockdown. We were also very lucky that the decision had been made to postpone our Trivia Night plans until later in the year as we would have been left with food, arrangements and plans in chaos with notification of the lockdown late on Saturday morning. Our celebrations began early on Friday morning with a large community gathering for breakfast. Our thanks to the Knights of the Southern Cross and St Columban’s students who generously gave of their time and talents to cook and serve this for us. We were very pleasantly surprised with the large community who gathered from 7:30am, many of whom were able to stay for our 9am liturgy. This liturgy was a beautiful acknowledgement and celebration of the journey of the St Peter’s community, made extra special by the attendance of many distinguished guests. These guests included BCE Executive Director Ms Pam Betts, our Parish Priest and celebrant Fr David, Fr Jacob and previous Parish Priest Fr Wrex Woolnough. Past Principal Sr Margaret Cleary was also in attendance to represent the Sister’s of St Joseph. Previous principals Mr Jim Midgley and Mr Mark Creevey were also able to join us, along with guests representing Brisbane Catholic Education and our friends from St Columban’s, including Principal Mr Mike Connolly. We were delighted to be joined by present and Past staff and students including first day pupils Mrs Robyn Wiggs, Mrs Desleigh Matthews, and members of the Dance family. From its humble beginnings in 1951, these St Peter’s ROCK stars have grown and shaped this community into the one we celebrate in our 70th year.<br><br></p><p>Our thanks to Mrs Lisa Freeth (APRE) for planning and preparing such a beautiful and meaningful liturgy. Thanks also to the staff and many parents who assisted in countless ways to ensure our students had an enjoyable day of celebration. Our day was topped off with outdoor fun activities including the climbing wall and inflatable obstacle course. This truly was a sensational community celebration of St Peter’s ‘70 Years Inspired in Community’.</p></p><p></p><p><img src="/community-news/PublishingImages/70YearAerial.jpg" alt="70YearAerial.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:572px;" /><br><br></p>
