Latest News
Dear Parents and Carers
The past week has also presented challenges and changes to our community and the nation as a whole. The COVID-19 pandemic has been discussed with our students and staff and we have made concerted efforts to focus on personal hygiene habits and understanding the role we play as responsible citizens.
I have communicated with our College community as soon as the Department of Education has updated me on the expectations and procedures need to implement to support the community response to COVID-19. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all parents and carers for their understanding as we all learn and adjust to these expectations.
After conducting student assemblies this week, it was very pleasing to listen to the factual information that the students could relate. If you are concerned that your child is anxious around the current situation, please contact our Wellbeing Staff on 57711300 or your local General Practitioner.

We are continuing to learn and teach at school as well as providing wellbeing support for all students. We are also following our normal procedures around student illness. If your child is feeling unwell, you will be called to collect them. Whilst children are unwell, we do not expect them to be completing homework.

If you have decided to self-isolate your child from school, please contact the office on 57711300 to report this. This is very important, as we need to account for every student by 9.30 am every day. The College has been requested to use a specific code on our attendance records if you have decided to self-isolate.
As I write, the latest information includes:
– Victorian schools will remain open, in line with the latest advice from Australia’s Chief Medical Officer. This is based on the best medical and health advice.
– No school students or school groups of any size should visit aged care facilities to further protect the elderly members of our community who are more vulnerable.
Please be a responsible citizen and follow the Department of Health and Human Services advice by washing your hands, social distancing and coughing and sneezing into your elbow.

Gail Hardman – Principal
