The Department regularly updates its coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic advice and guidance for schools.

This page is designed to help our Princes Hill Secondary School community find the most up-to-date advice and access key coronavirus (COVID-19) information and resources.

We will continue to inform our school community of any updates or new information via Compass Newsfeeds and post important content on this page for reference.

While we are very excited with the return to on-site learning from day one 2021, it is critical that we all remain vigilant in maintaining COVID Safe environments (see letter from the Victorian Chief Health Officer). Actions such as staying home when unwell, performing regular hand hygiene, and maintaining physical distance are simple measures, but are of the utmost importance.

COVID-19 and School Operations


The purpose of this page is to outline to parents, carers and students how our school will be managing risk and other operational matters relating to COVID-19.

We all have a role to play in reducing the risks relating to COVID-19 in Victoria.

Remote Learning Home


Our entire Princes Hill Secondary College community can be justifiably proud of how we weathered the storm of 2020. The perseverance and success of our students during 2020 is mirrored by the professional and dedicated work of teachers and support staff who rapidly learned to operate successfully in new ways unforeseen at the start of 2020. Parents and families too have played a key role in supporting and encouraging students through the challenges of the pandemic.

While our hope is that we will remain at school for 2021 and beyond, we have a plethora of information, tools and support at the ready on our Remote Learning Home page that can be resurrected should the need arise. We hope not! (smile)
