AFTER five weeks of hard work from both students and staff, the team at Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Elmore is pleased to be taking the next step towards normality.

“We're proud of the transition the staff and students have made to virtual learning and we've had a great response from families,” principal Elizabeth Trewick said.

“It's been about improving student outcomes and I believe we've been able to do that despite the challenges the pandemic has brought.”

The school has condensed its students into four classrooms.

“We felt this was the best way to ensure our students get the best education possible,” Ms Trewick said.

During the virtual learning period, students have been able to maintain a high standard of work.

“The children have been able to submit some very creative work and it's been wonderful to see them staying positive through what we can only imagine would be a difficult and confusing time for them,” Ms Trewick said.

The school would like to thank the school community, parents and students for all their hard work, as well as the Catholic education system for its support.
