Welcome to WIST
WIST team were thrilled to welcome you to WIST on Wednesday 2nd September.
It was lovely to meet so many of you in person and a huge thank you to all of our community for understanding and complying with the new arrangements during quarantine. Our gates have been open from 8am for our students to be dropped off to socialize and play with adult supervision prior to entering their classrooms at 8.30am.
The focus of the first week of school was ‘working together’ with our wonderful students to introduce our return to school safety measures and routines so that your children feel safe and happy to start to explore their learning journey with their friends.
We had lots of fun activities, songs and imagination used to maintain distance and of course the roomy well-ventilated classrooms with extra learning spaces on our specially designed state of the art campus. It takes a lot of practice and this has been great that our children are doing their best to follow it at all times.
Students have also done a great job of drawing up codes of respect so that they have ownership in the process and are clear about their role and responsibilities in the classroom, playground and corridors. Working together is important and they have made a fantastic start.
