Parent Teacher Conferences – Cancelled – Normal school day Monday 16th March

To the EKC school community.
I have decided that parent teacher interviews on Monday will not go ahead as planned. With the new advice that is coming through about gatherings of large numbers of people I think it is sensible to be conservative and do everything I can to protect the health of all of us.
Classes will run as normal on Monday and students should attend as usual.
At this stage there is no information about possible school closures. If the government decides to close schools I will inform the College community immediately.
I apologise for any inconvenience, but the health and well being of staff, students and parents is my top priority.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any concerns.

R U OK?Day is our national day of action dedicated to reminding everyone to ask, “Are you OK?” and to remember every day of the year to support people who may be struggling with life’s ups and downs.
This year in the build-up to R U OK?Day we’re encouraging everyone to Trust the Signs, Trust your Gut & Ask R U OK?
We want everyone to feel confident they know the signs someone might need support by listening to what they’re saying, seeing what they’re doing or knowing what’s going on in their life. Whenever you notice a change, no matter how small, we want you to trust your gut and  start an R U OK? conversation.
