AFTER more than three months of remote learning, foundation to year 2 students at Eastbourne Primary School, Rosebud started the new term with a teddy bears picnic.

“We wanted to reduce the anxiety and relax all the children and remind them of how much fun school life can be,” Shae Haney, the foundation teacher who organised the day, said.

She said the event saw students and teachers “enjoy school as it should be, plenty of learning, excitement and relationship building and fun”.

“Remote learning has been difficult for everyone and our school community has been sensational at providing the best online education possible,” Ms Haney said.

“It has also been important to make sure everyone is feeling positive about the return to face to face learning.”
