Dear Parents, Carers, Guardians and Students,

 

Happy Easter!!

 

PRINCIPAL’s UPDATE

As you are aware, the situation regarding coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support during the early commencement of the Term 1 holidays.

As I mentioned in my last update the Government have now advised that all schools will move to remote and flexible learning when students return for Term 2 on Wednesday 15 April.

This is not an action being taken lightly, and I understand it may cause you and your family concern and stress. Please know this step is being taken to slow the spread of the virus and ensure the health and safety of all Victorians.

This means that all students who can learn at home must learn from home. This is a very clear directive by the Victorian Government based on the advice of the Chief Health Officer.

ON-SITE PROVISION

All students will be learning from home, except for children those who are eligible to access on-site provision. 

  • Students on days or part-days when they are not able to be supervised at home and no other arrangements can be madeThis will be available for children of parents who cannot work from home.

  • Vulnerable students.

Please complete the on-site form included in the last update if you need a place during Week 1 of this term and email the completed form to olley.jean.m@edumail.vic.gov.au by by no later than MONDAY 13TH APRIL BY COB.
On receipt of the form submitted by the parent, carer, guardian I will ensure the application is complete. This may require me giving you a phone call to confirm the details of the form

If I am satisfied the request meets the threshold of the student being on-site, then I will confirm attendance with the parent, carers, guardian on TUESDAY 14TH APRIL and explain the logistical arrangements and requirements.

You will need to have a completed form confirmed by me to attend the College. No form no go.

A new form will need to be completed each week.


DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES

Work is also underway to identify students who do not have access to digital technologies at home. Devices such as laptops will be made available on loan to these students free-of-charge to ensure no student misses out. Surveys went out last term to identify students in years 5-12 who did not have a device and I believe we have all students 5-12 covered, but if this is not the case please email me at the above email address.
For students in Prep -4 we are currently looking at the number of devices we still  have available and will contact parents in P-4 shortly to confirm the arrangements.

Most of our teachers will also be working from home. All of them have been working hard to put curriculum plans in place to ensure continuity of learning and to support the wellbeing of all our students.

This is clearly going to be a challenging time for all of us. It’s going to be critically important that we work very closely together to ensure that we provide the very best possible support for the ongoing wellbeing and learning of our students and your children.


ABOUT LEARNING FROM HOME

When you start to think about helping your child to learn from home, remember that no one expects you to be a teacher or subject matter expert. The most important thing you can do is continue to provide routine, support and encouragement to your child.

You can support your child to learn from home by keeping up to date with our communications.

We will be:

·       clearly communicating the responsibilities of your child’s teacher            as well as what students and parents and carers need to do 

·       providing learning activities for your child to undertake

·       communicating with parents and students through our normal                  channels, for example via Compass, newsletters and Principal                updates

·       advising parents about the online tools your child can use to                  support their learning from home.


SETTING UP A LEARNING ENVIRONMENT

Every home is different. Where possible, extended learning should take place in a space your family shares. For example, a lounge room or dining room. These spaces are preferable over a bedroom, where your child can feel isolated and supervision can be more challenging.

It should be a place:

·       that can be quiet at times

·       where you or another adult is present.


Further information regarding coronavirus (COVID-19) and schools can be found on the Department’s website, which will continue to be updated as the situation evolves: https://www.education.vic.gov.au/about/department/Pages/coronavirus.aspx

 

Thank you for your support and goodwill during this time.


Warm regards

Jean Olley
