Music lesson sounds ringing through the valley...
With the music lessons zooming along online, it is wonderful to hear that the students are embracing the change in their lesson environments and still picking up their instruments with as much gusto. Thanks to Willow in Class 3 for sharing with us her beautifully illustrated violin book cover!
From Week 4 (Monday 18th May), Chrysalis will begin its staged reintroduction of face-to-face teaching for all students, through our Transition Pathway (see our flowchart below), beginning with one day per week for Kindy to Class 3 and two days per week for Classes 4 to 8. The letter to parents can be found here.

nbn education assistance for families
If there are families in the school community that have not been able to afford internet access previously, there is currently a support program now underway, essentially you need to receive Family Tax Benefit A or B and not have nbn installed to qualify.
There is a growing number of service providers who offer these packages, and people can sign up directly with the relevant providers. Activ8me, IPSTAR Broadband, SkyMesh all offer both nbn satellite service as well as nbn fixed wireless, as well as fixed line service in in town.
Interested families need to call one of the listed RSPs for further information or to apply. Please see the nbn leaflet here for further details.
