COVID and returning to school Update 19th May

Return transition to school COVID 19 Update 19/05/2020.


The transition back to on-site schooling
Following advice from the Victorian Chief Health Officer, and as announced by the Victorian Government, Victorian government schools will begin a transition back to on-site schooling for students.


The staged return will be as follows:
  • Prep, Year 1, Year 2, Year 11 and Year 12 students on-site from Tuesday 26 May 2020
  • students in Year 3 to Year 10 continue remote and flexible learning program until 5 June
The Australian Health Protection Principal Committee (AHPPC) has advised that a ‘venue density rule’ of no more than one person per four square metres is not appropriate or practical in classrooms or corridors, nor maintaining 1.5 metres between students during classroom activities. Therefore, the previously established ratio of 10 students per class is no longer required in schools.

We ask our community to work with us as a shared responsibility, support and do the best in very trying circumstances. This will not be perfect, but we hope you know that we will do everything possible to support families.
