The Victorian Government announced on July 12 2020 that students in Years 7-10 would again learn from home commencing from July 20 – with exceptions only in limited circumstances. These arrangements will remain in place until at least Wednesday August 19 for the duration of Term 2. Students in Years 11 and 12 are also learning remotely from July 20 as a result of coronavirus related school closure. 

Please reference the Department - Learning from home website for further information. Princes Hill Secondary College will use this page to provide remote and flexible learning information for our community, including parents/carers, students and staff.

Remote Learning Curriculum Information


The curriculum to be delivered during any period of remote learning has been reviewed to ensure:

  1. Continuity of Learning
    Students will continue their education and be prepared for the next stage of their learning.  

  2. Suitability for Remote Learning
    Some Learning Areas have re-sequenced curriculum to prioritize the topics and units of work most suitable for remote and independent learning. Many practical subjects have rewritten curriculum to adapt to the constraints of what students can achieve at home. 


Remote Learning Support


For support on Remote Learning:

Note that the school cannot provide home network support and the family should contact the relevant internet service provider for assistance on those matters.
