THE phased return to learning at Leeton High School continues to progress well, according to principal Meagan Crelley.
Student numbers have been solid in response to the move to phase one from May 11 as part of the managed return to full onsite face-to-face teaching.
"We will continue with our current onsite/at home arrangements for each year until we are directed by the Department of Education to move to the next phase which includes students returning for more days," Mrs Crelley said.
"This week we will also keep with our temporary six x 50-minute timetable to allow years 11 and 12 to engage in every class every day and to provide additional breaks from computer screens.
"From May 25, we will return to our 'normal' five x 60 minute period days and timetable. Students will follow their normal timetable (pre-COVID) which will assist our ability to manage growing student numbers in anticipation of the next step as determined by the department."
The school will be maintaining its current teaching and learning arrangements until it is directed to move to the next phase of the plan to gradually return students to school.
Students are expected to attend school on the day/s they have been allocated.
Wednesdays, at this stage, will remain a day for teachers to continue to plan, provide feedback and engage with students as they participate in their learning from home.
The school is open on Wednesdays to support essential workers to undertake their jobs during this challenging time.

Draw goes online
Last Friday Leeton High School held its first live positive behaviour learning draw on its Facebook page to acknowledge students for being respectful, responsible learners at school and at home.
Teachers nominated students who have been really trying their best with their learning for the prize draw.
Twenty-four prizes were given out to deserving students to use at local businesses including the school's own canteen, the Hungry Hut.
Meetings on hold
Leeton High School's monthly P&C meetings are still on hold due to current restrictions.
