Following advice from the Victorian Government on Tuesday 12 May, some students will be returning to school from Tuesday 26 May.
The Victorian Chief Health Officer has advised that it is safe for Victorian school students and teachers to return to on-site schooling in a two-staged approach:
- Stage 1 – from Tuesday 26 May
Early years students (Prep to Grade 2) and senior secondary students (Year 11 and 12) undertaking the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) and Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL), and all specialist school students will return to on-site schooling. All staff will attend on-site.
- Stage 2 – from Tuesday 9 June
Grade 3 to Year 10 students will return to on-site schooling, subject to health advice.
To support all school staff to prepare for this transition, Monday 25 May will be a pupil-free day.
