Morgan Street Public School set up stalls in front of the school for families to pick up learning packs for students. 

Principal Scott Sanford said the stalls were a way for families and students who have elected to stay home from school in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic to pick up their schoolwork. 

“This is a way we can continue the students’ learning,” said Mr Sanford. “Our teachers have been amazing over the last 48 hours putting the learning packs together.”

“This is a new experience for parents having their children at home. It’s a new thing for the kids to be learning from home and it’s new for the teachers to adjust to teaching the students while they’re at home, but we’re all in this together.

“If families weren’t able to come down and collect their learning packs they can contact the school and organise the best way to get the packs to them,” he said. “Our thoughts are with all our families and the community as we navigate the unknown together.”
