COVID-19 update: key changes as restrictions ease from Wednesday July 28

Dear students, staff, parents, guardians and carers

the following information has just come through from the Department of Education:

The Victorian Government has announced new arrangements for schools in Victoria from and including Wednesday 28 July 2021.

Based on advice from the Victorian Chief Health Officer, schools in Victoria will return to face-to-face learning and teaching for all students from and including Wednesday 28 July 2021.

This means all students are expected to attend our school on-site from Wednesday 28 July 2021.
This means all students are expected to attend on-site and Outside School Hours Care (OSHC) programs operating in schools will also resume full operations from and including Wednesday 28 July 2021.  

To keep our school safe, we have introduced some important operational changes. This includes:

Different entrances for different year levels (please observe signs on entrances).
Visitors limited and only entering via the main front door.
Limiting movement and mixing of student cohorts. Be on the lookout for room changes for classes tomorrow.
Enhanced staff supervision to ensure mask compliance and physical distancing at the canteen.
Advance orders are encouraged; more information to follow.

Face masks:
There has been no change to the face mask advice, which will continue to apply to all school settings, including any Outside School Hours Care (OSHC) programs:

  • Secondary school students aged 12 or older must wear a face mask at all times indoors and outdoors when at school, including when attending an OSHC program, unless a lawful exception applies.
  • Children under 12 years of age and students at primary school are not required to wear face masks when at school, or when attending an OSHC program.
  • Face masks are mandatory for all school students aged 12 or older on public transport and when in taxis or ride-share vehicles.  This includes travelling to and from school on public transport or in a vehicle with others not from your household.

Thank you for your continued support during this time. As always, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with any feedback or queries.

Please note that all parent meetings will be held online until further notice, also that parent volunteers cannot attend onsite at the moment.
Kind regards

Linda Mitchell, Principal
