April 11: Term 2 Arrangement for DWPS


Hello Dandenong West Families, I hope you are all well.

I am sure you have heard that in 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 corona virus.

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


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 on Tuesday April 14th after 11.30am

The school will contact families whose children are in specific groups that we are also able to offer onsite school learning.

On Tuesday April 14th or Wednesday April 15th you will receive a phone call from your child’s teacher or another Staff member so that everyone is ready for Learning at Home to commence.

Learning from home information will be sent out by SMS or through the Website, on Facebook and on the Skoolbag app. So please keep checking.


Keep well,

Beverley Hansen
