Many Namoi Valley Christian School students are embracing the latest chapter in their education journey – home learning.

Last week, students dressed up for the school’s annual book fair dress-up day but this year was a little different with most students now at home due to concerns around COVID-19.

“We used Zoom (a video communication tool) to allow students to see their classmates and share who they had dressed-up as,” said principal Peter Henderson.

“Students could either dress-up as a favourite book character or in line with our book fair theme ‘the enchanted forest’.

“We had more families participate than what I was expecting as the decision to go ahead with an at home dress-up didn’t leave parents a great deal of time to sort out costumes,” said Mr Henderson.

From ‘Anne of Green Gables’ to ‘Boy Vs Beast’ the students’ costumes were outstanding.

Mr Henderson said some days all the school’s students are learning from home and other days a couple of students are still attending classrooms.

“Feedback from parents so far is positive and they’ve indicated they are impressed with the commitment of the teachers to support their child and them during this time.”
