From the Principal

Dear Parents/Carers,

It has been a big term and our students have continued to work with their teachers to develop their skills in a very different setting. Our students have again demonstrated their capacity, to continue engaging in their learning, with new ways of communicating and working together. We have seen them participating confidently, asking for assistance when it was needed, clarifying their understanding and challenging themselves under the guidance of teachers. It has been wonderful to see the creativity and enjoyment they have shown participating in the range of activities offered. Our teachers are proud of what they have achieved. We wish everyone an enjoyable holiday and look forward to seeing the students again next term. 

When we have information about the setting for Term 4 we will communicate the information to you via SMS, email & website.

 The Palm Plaza Vaccination Clinic operates from 9am to 5pm, seven days a week and will do so for several weeks. Please be aware that the clinic may close early on days due to demand and supply of vaccines.

 Local residents can walk-in to the vaccination clinic as, no bookings are required. The pop-up clinic will have both Pfizer and AstraZeneca vaccines.

The Palm Plaza Vaccination Clinic will have interpreters and interpreter services available to support local residents who attend.

 The vaccination is free, safe and the best way to protect yourself, your family and community from COVID-19.

A reminder that individuals intending to be vaccinated should bring their Medicare cards with them. If they do not have a Medicare card, they will still need to bring some form of ID (driver’s license, passport etc.) to receive the vaccine.

Please be aware that the waiting area is outside, so individuals will need personal items such as water, sun protection or an umbrella with you.

If individuals have any symptoms, they should get tested, isolate and wait to receive a negative result before attending the vaccination clinic. For the latest information on getting tested for COVID-19, please visit the Victorian Government’s Where to get tested webpage.
