Attention Parents & Carers
Arrangements as of Wednesday 5/08/2020
Year 7-10 Students
Students in Years 7 – 10 will continue on line learning.
The school will provide supervision for students whose parents/carers cannot work from home and for vulnerable students as determined by the previous guidelines. Please contact the college if you believe your child falls into this category and requires care.
Extra cleaning has taken place across the school holidays. We will continue to implement COVID protocols and requirements for schools in order to protect the health of our students and staff. Should your child be unwell or displaying symptoms they should stay away from school until well.
Dear Parents, Carers and Students in VCE and VCAL
As of today, we are back to remote and flexible learning for all students in Victoria. This is based on the advice of the Victorian Chief Health Officer.
This will continue until the end of Term 3, 18th September.
This is again another challenge for students and families and is a particularly anxious time for the Year 12 students finishing their Unit 4, VCAL and last year of secondary schooling.
We wanted to reach out to all families to say that the school will do its best to keep all students supported and that the well-being of the students is the main concern of the Senior School Coordinators and staff.
Home Group teachers and Coordinators will be in contact with students regularly in order to check in with them and so that any concerns can be addressed as quickly as possible. If parents or carers have any concerns, we ask that you also contact your child’s Coordinator.
Our teachers are well-equipped for remote and flexible learning and will continue to deliver lessons to their students. SACs and SATs will be administered via remote wherever possible during this term. Some may need to wait until we return. If we hear anything different from the VCAA we will communicate this with you all.
VTAC applications are being processed and there is information for everyone, both on Compass and on the school website. Sue Brownbill will be making contact with all students in order to process the VTAC and related applications for this year.
We would like to again reiterate that no student will be unfairly disadvantaged by this further disruption or by any technology issues, should they arise especially during any formal assessment. Students are to immediately let a subject teacher or Coordinator know if they are experiencing technology issues and will be referred to our IT team for troubleshooting.
We would like to thank all families for their support and we encourage you to keep the communication open.
