Remote Learning through COVID 19
Following advice from the Victorian Government all classes and year levels will be moving to remote and flexible learning from Wednesday 5 August. (Years 7-10 began remote learning from the start of term 3. Online learning begins from Wednesday 15 April.
This is a step all Victorian government schools are taking to help slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). This means that all students who can learn at home must learn from home. This is a very clear directive from the Victorian Government based on the advice of the Chief Health Officer.
The College has created a range of guides for students and parents to provide clarity and support of how remote learning will look and work. These documents can be accessed via this link and also available via the recently created visual guide.
In term 3 we will be integrating the use of the webcam, cameras is optional. Please refer to this guide.
We will continue to offer limited on-site learning for those students who need to access this, including for students on days when they are not able to be supervised at home and no other arrangements can be made. As a small staff will be at school to supervise students, it is important to complete this form by 3pm every Thursday PRIOR sending them.
Please note that THERE IS NO EDUCATIONAL ADVANTAGE IN SENDING YOUR CHILD TO SCHOOL AS OPPOSED TO LEARNING AT HOME throughout this time. Let's ensure we all do our part and follow the isolation requirements.
