What are our P1 students most looking forward to in school? Making new friends, learning new things, and of course recess time! Glad to see them settling in well at Waterway Primary this morning. Despite COVID-19, we are determined to keep learning going for our students this school year.

The littles ones had the whole primary school to themselves today. While the first day of school may be a little quieter without our older primary school students, we know it’s important for us to welcome the P1s and their parents safely.
Those in secondary schools are more familiar with these routines, and are happy to reunite with their friends after the school holidays. Their teachers encouraged them to continue to be socially responsible, both in and out of school, even as we move into Phase 3.
