Transport Canberra staff member and young woman exchange home learning pack

At the start of term 2, ACT public schools will move to a remote delivery of learning.

24 April 2020

Schools in the ACT have moved quickly to deliver classes online as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 situation and thanks to the good work of Transport Canberra staff.

Some of Transport Canberra’s special needs transport staff pitched in to deliver much needed learning packs to the homes of students from the Cranleigh School.

Cranleigh is a specialist school, with 93 students aged between 4 and 12 years, living north of Lake Burley Griffin that was established 40 years ago.

The students have significant intellectual disabilities, and many have autism as well. The focus at Cranleigh is for them to develop independence through individualised learning plans.

At the start of term 2, ACT public schools will move to a remote delivery of learning. Most students, if possible, will undertake their learning from home.

Public school students across the ACT will participate in an adjusted routine across the school week. Teachers will be working far more flexibly to accommodate the individual needs of all students and offer additional assistance, as required, to those who need extra support.

It’s important that all students have access to the resources needed to learn from home. With the help of the fantastic staff at Transport Canberra, as well as the ACT State Emergency Services, who assisted with the delivery of Chromebooks to primary schools earlier this month, students will be able to remain connected with their existing classmates and teachers - and not miss out on valuable learning.
