Wasn’t last Sunday a big day with Father’s Day and also the press conference from Daniel Andrews giving us our roadmap out of Stage 4 restrictions? As you would have read from my communication on Sunday the following information is from a school perspective (at this stage):
Schools in metropolitan Melbourne from 5 October - all children from Prep-6 will continue remote learning with the exception of children of permitted workers or vulnerable students.
Schools in metropolitan Melbourne from 12 October – return to onsite learning
Students in Prep to Grade 2 return to full-time onsite schooling. The existing remote learning program will not continue for these year levels.
Remote and flexible learning will continue for all students in Grade 3 to Year 10, other than for children of permitted workers and vulnerable students.
Dates to be confirmed, subject to health advice
All students from Grade 3 to Year 10 in metropolitan Melbourne will continue with remote and flexible learning. A date for the return of these year levels to face-to-face learning will be subject to further health advice.
During the staged return, outside school hours care will be available to students attending for on-site supervision and progressively for the relevant year levels returning to on-site learning.
This next stage of school operations both contributes to the continuing efforts to reduce the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) and maximises the learning of our students. It requires again the flexibility, adaptability and resilience that have been demonstrated so well by our school.
I hope all the fathers, grandfathers and special men in our community all had a day being spoilt by their children. If you haven’t had time to view our Father's Day Virtual Assembly, it is well worth a look. Who would have known what fabulous dancers the men in our community would be?
