Good morning Class 9 - we hope you have had a restful long weekend - This week is a good chance to find your own rhythms again in work, exercise, sleep and looking after yourself with good food and lots of warm drinks and water. In the colder months, we sometimes benefit from being quieter and sleeping more. Make an effort too, to complete all your school work and we will look forward to seeing you soon. 

Your work from teachers will be as usual posted in the subject areas. Do email Damien or Tess  or any subject teachers, if you have any questions or concerns and we will get back to you quickly. We love to hear from you.

Warmth from your guardians

Guidelines for submitting work via email:
Always use your school email account or a parents email.
  • Reply to any email. 

    • This is to confirm to your teacher that you have seen and received the email.

    • It only needs to be a simple “Thanks”. 

    • You can always add more if you have a question.

  • Use formal language.

    • Set out your email or reply with letter writing conventions.

    • Check your spelling and grammar.

  • Give your email a subject.

    • Class 9 English week 1. Or Class 11 Main Lesson Tuesday Week 2. Etc.

  • Any files that are sent should be saved with your name and subject.

    • i.e. Esme W2 German.

  • Compile work into one file.

    • A series of photographs could be included in a single word document and then sent. 

    • This may take you 5 minutes, but if your teacher has to do that for 20 students it could take over an hour and a half.

  • Be aware of the size of files.

    • Send small photo files.

    • Change a word document to a pdf

    • You can reduce a file size in word by selecting FILE REDUCE FILE SIZE (in the top toolbar) and then changing the selection from ‘Print 220ppi’ to ‘Email ‘96ppi’.

    • Contact your teacher if you are having difficulty emailing a large file that cannot be reduced.
