COVID-19 – 14 May
Update 1

Dear Parents and Guardians,


Thank you for all your support during these past few weeks of remote and flexible learning.

As you likely know by now, the Chief Health Officer, the Victorian Government and the Catholic Education Commission of Victoria Ltd (CECV) have advised that schools can begin a phased return to onsite schooling.

In the first stage, students in Years 11 and 12 (VCAL, VET and VCE) will return to the College from Tuesday 26 May 2020.

In the second stage all other Year Levels will return to school from Wednesday 10 June 2020. Tuesday 9 June will be a student free day as had been calendared at the start of the year.

For those students who cannot be supervised at home, and vulnerable children, the existing model of onsite schooling will remain in place during the two-week period from Tuesday 26 May to Tuesday 9 June.

To support all school staff to prepare for this transition, Monday 25 May will be a student free day.

Please know the College are working through the CECV (Catholic Education Commission Victoria) guidelines to ensure the health and safety of all our staff and students as these transitions occur. This will take some time to sort through and we beg your patience as the necessary structures and processes are put in place. Please know that when we have established clear and firm plans they will be shared with you.


Kind regards,
Rory Kennedy
