Rooms Library A, Library B & 5 - 8 Instructions
Outlined in the latest Principal’s Update are details relating to how distance learning
will work. Google Classroom for Rooms Lib-A to Rm 8 is mentioned.
Today at 5pm we will post information on your child's Google Classroom page. This will
outline some activities they can choose to work on over the holidays. Please ask your son/
daughter to log in to google classroom to make sure access is available. If you have any
issues with login access please email your child's homeroom teacher.
● Depending on their age, students can be encouraged to read, or be read to. They can
also help, by reading to their younger siblings, if they’re also home.
● Keeping a journal or scrapbook during the time period is a way for them to collect and
create. These could incorporate drawings, photos, plans and stories of things they’ve
done, all of which will help their literacy skills.
● Helping out with cooking and baking makes use of their maths skills and shows them
how maths is all around them. Helping with housework also teaches your child lots of
important skills about being organised, teamwork, co-operating and contributing.
● Talk to your child about how (critical) thinking is important to make sense of everything
they do at school and at home. Find some news items or opinion pieces, and discuss
whether you each agree with what’s been said. Why? Why not?
Keep in mind these are just ideas that you may want to use with your children, and you will
know how much or how long to spend on this. Remember, official distance learning begins on
Wednesday the 15th of April.

RVS Middle School
On Sunday 23rd February, Pastors Tom, as part of his 2020 Vision message shared a fundraising mission that we all have the opportunity to be a part of.
Our new RVS College Students need a basketball court as they're currently bouncing a ball around in the drop-off area of the car park!
The court will be 600m² so we've broken it down into 600 squares at $100 each.
To donate 'squares' please contact Sonia at the Elim Church Office or email her on firstname.lastname@example.org . There is a large picture on the servery slide in the Church Foyer where we will all be able to watch the squares being blocked out - exciting!
We here at Richmond View School have a great opportunity to show the love of Jesus in helping meet the needs of others. We are partnering with The Elim Church fundraising to support our friends at Blenheim School to help meet their student's uniform needs.
Over the next month the Year 9 and 10 students will be running various Fundraising events within the school, all led and run by the students themselves. We would love your support as we go about being more like Jesus to support those in need and teaching the kids the same. Matthew 25:34-40
If you would like to just give a one off donation to this initiative, please see the Elim Church office. Thank you for your support.
A bigTHANK YOU to all those who contributed to the RVS Support Crew Cooking Bee. We are so grateful for your generosity in donating food items, lending cooking appliances and cooking.
