College Updates

Thank you again for your support last week during the extreme weather event.  Should you have been seriously impacted by the weather and flood damage, please contact us so we can provide whatever support we can.

Until otherwise advised, we remind families that staff and secondary school students attending a school located in regional Victoria must wear a face mask indoors, unless an exemption applies. Accordingly, we ask all families to ensure that students leave home with a face mask.

Face masks are also recommended outdoors where at least 1.5 metres of physical distance cannot be maintained.

Additionally, the current Victorian restrictions require people, including students 12 years and older, travelling on public transport and school buses to wear face masks unless an exemption applies on public transport.

We also want to assure families that the College will continue to maintain enhanced environmental cleaning and daily disinfecting, including frequent and regular cleaning and disinfection of shared spaces and high-touch areas.

Whilst we are in a period of changing COVID-19 restrictions, we can still conduct certain activities and events; however, we may have to postpone or cancel others. Therefore, below is an outline of what is still in place until the end of next week, Friday 25 June 2021, as well as events that may need to be rescheduled or for which we waiting on advice from authorities:
