Responding to Change
When staff and students went home from school on Friday afternoon, excited for the weekend, none of them realised that by Monday thousands of Southeast Queensland students would be forced to study from home, prompted by a snap lockdown. What unusual times we live in! And yet our Pimpama community has certainly been successful in adapting and responding to change. Our staff were prepared for the unexpected, and have proven themselves adaptable and keen users of purposeful technology in the classroom - wherever that classroom happens to be!
