Dear students, parents and staff
The long anticipated return of all year levels to on-site learning takes place on Monday with Years 8, 9 and 10 rejoining us. Please be aware that there are changes to our arrangements with all students back on site. We are very much looking forward to catching up and communicating in person, and salute the reslience and perseverance of Year 8,9 and 10 students, parents and teachers who have been in remote learning for the long haul. Key elements of the return to school are outlined below with full details found at our Returning to school/On-site Learning wiki page. Please take time to view the brief version below along with the full details at the link.
We are optimistic about the declining trend in coronavirus numbers across Melbourne - if there are three or fewer cases confirmed tomorrow, the 14-day average will drop to five, a pivotal number for moving out of Stage 4 restrictions. However, we remain vigilant about infection control measures at school, doing all we can to prevent potential transmission and ensure the school can stay open for on-site learning right through to the end of the year. To minimise the risks, we are heavily reliant on students following the, Public Health, Department and school guidelines, including continuing to maintain 1.5 physical distance wherever reasonably possible, both in classrooms, during recess, lunchtime and travelling to and from school. Our thoughts and encouragement are with our Year 12 students as they prepare for exams with barely two weeks of classes remaining. It is of course especially important for our Year 12 students to ensure the school stays virus free as we enter the external VCAA examination period.
A reminder that the most important action we can take to reduce the risk of transmission of coronavirus (COVID-19), is to ensure that any unwell staff and students remain at home and get tested, even with the mildest of symptoms. Detailed information about health and safety at school is available at our Returning to school/On-site Learning page. This page will be updated page as further information or advice becomes available or changes to arrangements are deemed necessary.
