On-site Learning Update 12th April 2020

Dear Parents and Carers,

Our remote learning and teaching programs are ready to begin from Wednesday 15th April. This is the government’s preferred way for all students to participate in schooling for Term 2. This means that all students who CAN learn at home MUST learn from home. This is a very clear directive from the Victorian Government based on the advice of the Chief Health Officer.

We will continue to offer limited on-site learning for those students who need to access this during the regular school hours 8.50am to 3.05pm. If you require care after 3.05pm please contact our Out of School Hours Care provider Extend on 1300366437 to register your need.

Students are eligible to come to school on days when they are not able to be supervised at home and no other arrangements can be made, however if your work schedule has you working only 4 days per week, for example, your child can only access on-site learning on those 4 days. Please note, your child will be participating in the same learning program as their peers at home, with their classroom teacher offering them support remotely whilst at school. Other teachers present will be supervising only.

In order to participate you MUST complete the attached form and return it to school each week by THURSDAY the week before so we can ensure there are enough staff on site to safely supervise the children who attend.  To participate during week 1 Term 2, please return by Tuesday 14th April. Please send to You will be required to sign your child in and out of school on the days they attend so please accompany them into the school office.

The on-site attendance form is available at the bottom of this page.
