The Victorian Government announced on the 7th April 2020 that all children who can learn at home must learn from home – with exceptions only in extremely limited circumstances. Victorian government schools will conduct remote and flexible learning with students from Wed 15th April and these arrangements will remain in place for the duration of Term 2 and will then be reviewed.
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.
The school community should continue to refer to Compass for regular Newsfeeds about school learning, activities and information. Click on the heading of the latest announcement below for the most recent information. Click here for all prior announcements.

Remote Learning Curriculum Information
The curriculum to be delivered during any period of remote learning has been reviewed to ensure:
- Continuity of Learning
Students will continue their education and be prepared for the next stage of their learning.
- 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:
- Curriculum based enquiries - contact class Teacher using Compass
- General Learning/Student enquiries - contact applicable Year Level Coordinator
- Student Remote Learning Help - see Learning From Home (student access only)
- Staff Remote Learning Help - see Working From Home (staff access only)
