Term 2: Learning From Home

During Term 2 students will be learning from home and most teachers will be working from home to make sure we are all practising social distancing to stop the spread of the coronavirus.

The Victorian Government has stated that all students who can learn from home must learn from home.

Every Thursday, parents/carers can pick up their home learning packs for their child/children to support their learning over the week. Please come to the school during your allocated time to pick up your resources. During this period it will be important to adhere to social distancing practices at all times.

Based on your surname, your times are:

Every Thursday


A-C:  9:00 to 10:00
D-H: 10:00 to 11:00
I-M:  11:00 to 12:00

N-R:  12:00 to 1:00
S-Z:   1:00 to 2:00


The Government has also said that schools can offer families the possibility of children attending school in exceptional circumstances, and that is where the adults must go out to their workplace and there is no-one who can look after the children. 

If you have ‘exceptional circumstances’ that would require your child/children to be at school, you must complete the application form that you can find attached to the SMS alert you will receive, on our Website and on the Skoolbag app. or you should ring the school on 9792 2868.

School updates can be found through our Website, on our Facebook page or Skoolbag App. So please keep checking.

Keep well,

Beverley Hansen
