COVID-19 – 17 March Update 1

17 March 2020 by

Dear Parents and Guardians,

As of Monday 16 March at 5.30pm, the current advice from CECV to our College community is that all schools remain open and operating in their current form.

For those concerned, I would refer you to the advice from Dr Brett Sutton, Victoria’s Chief Health Officer, that ‘pre-emptive school closures are not likely to be proportionate or effective as a public health intervention to prevent community transmission of COVID-19 at this time.’

MacKillop College is responding as directed by the CECV and have cancelled the following events:

17/03/2020        MacKillop Fun Run

17/03/2020        Music Ensemble Evening
