COVID-19 – 8 July UPDATE 1

08 July 2020 by


Dear Parents and Guardians,

The Victorian Government has made some significant announcements about the introduction of new measures for schools across metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchell Shire to reduce the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

These include a change to arrangements for schools at the start of Term 3.

As our College is in an affected area, the government’s new measures will apply to us.

Students in Years 11 and 12 and Year 10 students enrolled in VCE, VCAL and VET study
Classes will resume for students enrolled in Years 11 and 12, and students in Year 10 enrolled in a VCE, VCAL and VET study, for onsite learning on Monday 13 July 2020.

Students in all other Year Levels
There will be five student-free days from Monday 13 to Friday 17 July 2020 for students not enrolled in VCE, VCAL and VET subjects. Classes are expected to resume for these students on Monday 20 July 2020.

I know that this may mean uncertainty and another period of dislocation for you and your family. The College is doing everything it can to mitigate the impact of these changes on our community, and to minimise the impact of this disruption on your son/daughter’s learning journey.

If there are any changes to the arrangements for the start of Term 3, we will update you.

Kind regards,
Rory Kennedy
