Principal Mark Ionn said the school community had responded well to the change in learning environment during the coronavirus pandemic.

He said teacher aids had been checking-in with parents to see how their children were adapting and teachers reading books to students online while the physical divide remained in place.

The school captains had also shown initiative, sending out a well-being message to the community.

"In uncertain times, our role is to promote who we are as a school and how we adapt and move with the community," Mr Ionn said.

"Our school is all about belonging. We care about each other, we celebrate our talents and achievements, and we support and encourage each other."

Parents Lindsey and Jason Spitler, who have three children at the school, said it was fantastic to see teachers interacting with students on a daily basis.

"We have found the whole situation even better than we expected," Mr Spitler said.

"Everything had to be put together so fast and from our perspective, the roll out has been flawless."

Students in in kindy, prep, and years 1, 11 and 12 returned to school under revised restrictions last week.

Other grades will join them on Monday, May 25.
