As of midnight on 15th July 2021, Victoria is in a lock down. This includes schools.
Learning from home will be in place over this period. The lock down is expected to end at 11.59pm on Tuesday (27th July), meaning school resumes on Wednesday 28th July.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT BOTH STUDENTS AND PARENTS REGULARLY CHECK COMPASS FOR UPDATES DURING THIS TIME.
Please do not attend the school in-person during learning from home time unless authorized.
Supervision is available for children of essential workers or where it may be unsafe or unsuitable to remain at home during school hours.
If requiring this service, please complete and return the below on-site supervision form to Principal, Ms Amanda Mullins, in advance.
Please note that students attending for on-site supervision will not receive extra tuition, and are expected to arrive with the required equipment to complete their online learning for the day. Face masks must be worn.
Lessons will be added to Compass from Friday 16th July.
There will be some lessons where students are required to use WebEx.
It is really important to keep our routines and it is an expectation that all students log on to their Compass every morning and complete the necessary work for every lesson.
