SSR Online Learning Space
Welcome to St Simon the Apostle Primary School, Rowville
Learning at Home 2021
Welcome to one of the digital learning platforms that are available at St Simon the Apostle. This site has been created to compliment the online learning that will be undertaken under the guidance of your child's classroom teacher whilst they are continuing to learn from home.
At St Simon the Apostle we believe that all students should be given the opportunity to engage meaningfully with the curriculum and to learn from a variety of different learning experiences. These resources aim to offer genuine rich learning for our students. We will be updating the site regularly to ensure that we can continue to support our students and families.
Our Specialist teachers (Physical Education, Visual Art, Music and Japanese) will also be contributing to the learning available here throughout 2021.
Keep updated with news from our Parish through this link. Currently both Government and Church directives have suspended Sunday Masses. The Parish are working to find other ways that they can support you spiritually as well as helping our community to feel connected in these times of isolation. Fr. Kevin Dillon will continue to radio broadcast Sunday Mass from St. Simon's on 89.9 LightFM, as long as possible, at 7am on Sunday mornings.
The Parish will be updating their information regularly. As of now, the Church is closed to the General public until further notice. Daily Masses are being videotaped and can be accessed via the Parish's website after 9:15am. The Parish’s Bulletin and Homily can also be accessed via the Parish's web-page along with other Parish news. God bless and take care.
The NSW Government has provided an extensive checklist to help parents/carers to set up a home learning environment, which includes creating a quiet and comfortable learning space suitable for extended learning.
COVID-19 Global Online Safety Advice for Parents and Carers: Australian Edition
The global impact of COVID-19 means young people will be spending more time at home — and more time online. There are lots of great ways children can use connected devices to learn and play, but there are also risks. As parents and carers, you have the best opportunity to support and guide your children to avoid online risks and have safer experiences. Governments and industry also have a role to play in making sure the online world is a safe place to be. This booklet from esafety.gov.au has been made available to assist Families and Carers. At St Simon the Apostle, we encourage you to take some time to read through this booklet.
