Home Learning Week 1 Monday 23 March

Good morning Loretto

I hope you all had a restful weekend getting used to the new safe way of living as we do our part in trying to minimise the spread of Covid19.

It is very important we all follow the rules set out by the government. They are just like our school rules Be Ready, Be Safe, Be Respectful.

BE SAFE is the most important and that means we can’t come to school or go out to play in groups.

We need to remember that we are all in this together and be kind to everyone around us-even though we might be fed up or worried.

For pupils -please do not use the google classrooms as a chat room-this is our online classroom so it’s there to help our learning and talk to your teacher.

For parents-you are politely reminded this is a learning platform and aprents should not log on without their child in attendance. Of course, please help your child but it is not a forum for parent discussion or asking the teacher individual questions. It takes a bit of IT admin and managing by each teacher.

Please be patient as teachers will most likely only be able to answer during school hours but they need some flexibility too as we adjust.

This week my home learning is for you to write and draw a prayer for everyone working and learning at home.

Here’s mine

Dear Lord

Help us to be safe, kind and patient with everyone at home. Help us to be a kind child, like the boy Jesus and a patient , understanding parent like our Mother Mary. Help us to follow the example of St. Joseph in caring for his Holy Family.

Lord Hear Us

 

 

 

Schools closure Coronavirus

Here in Loretto we are planning to support your children’s learning . Further details to follow .

Best wishes

Margaret Anne McBean

 

Cross Country Event Cancelled

Sorry but we got late word that the Cross Country event for Mon 16th March has been cancelled on the advice of East Lothian Council due to ongoing concerns around Covid19.

Sorry for the disappointment but we need to follow guidance and help the effort in these unprecedented times.
