As the return to Online Learning for the start of Term 1 may have upset some of our families, we thought we'd share this video to help you process the transition - we hope you enjoy this music teacher's attempt to share her thoughts on online learning....

Dainfern College will be starting Term 1 ONLINE from Monday 18 January in response to the Education department briefing this morning, and to safeguard the health and wellbeing of our community.

We are fully committed to supporting our students and parents during our Remote Academic Programme, and so pleased that we anticipated this by getting academic packs out to our Prep School students this morning as well as the Welcome Packs to our Grade 8s and new students in the High School.

Although we'd have loved to have seen you all back on campus on Monday, we know this is the right thing to do to keep our community safe and well. We delivered the full academic programme last year most successfully, despite the challenges of 2020, and with your support we know we can do it again.

Together, we've got this...
