To our Ranfurly Family,
I’m sure like us, many of you are overwhelmed and under pressure by the current situation and now your children will be home with you for the foreseeable future. 
So our team at school have designed some learning actions for your children here in our Learning from Home portal. You can press the link to access.
As the Principal of Ranfurly to help you through the emotions of what is ahead, I thought I’d provide my thoughts and some thinking points. 
So remember:
This is not home schooling. This is an unprecedented emergency situation impacting the whole world. Let's keep perspective! We have created an online learning portal ‘Learning from Home’ to support you in keeping your child / children engaged over the coming weeks and months.
You are, and always have been, your child's primary educator. If you decide that your child isn't going to engage with anything in the portal and is going to spend the entire period playing in the dirt, or baking, or watching TV that is your choice. There is nothing to stress or feel guilty about.

Ranfurly Primary School

Our school is doing its best. We got very little notice, and we have been able to move many of our learning actions to an online environment to support you and your family from home.
It is absolutely not possible to facilitate distance learning with a primary aged child and work from home at the same time. The very idea is nonsense. If you're trying to do that, stop now. You can certainly have activities where your child learns, but your focus is your job, and survival.
Lastly, if you are aware of anyone in our school community that has limited resources and is not able to access the online Learning from Home portal please encourage them to contact the school ASAP as we have support plans in place for everyone.
Please look after each other. Be safe, stay sane and remember……..It’s time to be Strong in the Heart and Smart in the Head.
