Hi everyone,

We hope you have had a relaxing holiday and had the opportunity to get away, see friends and family or get a project done.

You may have heard the announcement yesterday afternoon from the Deputy Premier, James Merlino. The Department of Education and Training has provided guidelines for a staggered return of students to school in Regional Victoria. In order to meet the needs of the students in our school, we have the following plan for on-site learning:

  • Year 12 VCE and VCAL students will return to on-site learning on Monday 4th October, with COVID safety measures in place.
  • Year 11 students completing a Unit 3/4 subject will be able to come on-site for these classes as of Monday 4th October, with COVID safety measures in place. They will continue with Remote and Flexible Learning for their other subjects.
  • Year 7 to 11 students will begin the term on Monday 4th October with Remote and Flexible Learning, and have a staggered return to school that will be as follows:
    • Year 11 students will return to on-site learning on a full-time basis as of Wednesday 6th
    • Year 7 students will return to on-site learning on a full-time basis as of Monday 11th

 

  • Year 8, 9 and 10 students will return to on-site learning in the following stages:
    • Year 8 students will attend on-site lessons for two days (possibly Tuesdays and Wednesdays) in Weeks 2 and 3, continuing with remote learning on the other days.
    • Year 9 and 10 students will attend on-site lessons for two days (possibly Thursdays and Fridays) in Weeks 2 and 3, continuing with remote learning on the other days.
    • Year 8, 9 and 10 students will return to on-site learning on a full-time basis as of Tuesday 26th

Please note: the specific days of the week on-site may change for Year 8, 9 and 10 students due to complex timetabling issues that we are working through, however, the students will be on-site for the number of days stated above. The information above gives a guide for returning on-site. We will confirm the specific days as soon as possible.

We will continue to supply Year 7 to 10 students with a blended learning model to suit a staged return to on-site learning, which includes;

  • communication and digital resources and tasks posted on Google Classrooms
  • interactive lessons and live support via Zoom lessons
  • hard copy packs of the resources and tasks as posted on Google Classrooms.

Please note that it is expected that students will submit all tasks to their teachers at the end of each week for marking and feedback. This can be done digitally (photos, scanned documents, completed Google docs) or in hard copy by dropping it to the Office or selected drop-off point.

Thank you again for your cooperation, resilience, and support.

It is important that students and parents ask for help if any assistance is required. If you need any wellbeing support for your child, please do not hesitate to contact us. Some further support contacts are listed below:
