COVID-19 – 16 August UPDATE 1

Dear Parents/Guardians,

I hope you and your family are safe and well despite the everyday grind and repetition that being in lockdown brings.

This afternoon, Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews announced that lockdown restrictions would be extended until midnight Thursday 2 September.

While the College is in a privileged position by having many structures in place to support remote and online learning, we acknowledge that this is a difficult and challenging time for our students, parents/guardians and staff.

If you believe your child requires further support with learning from home, we urge you to contact their teachers and/or coordinators to discuss what can be done.

Unfortunately, this extension to lockdown means there are more calendared events that need to be postponed or cancelled. Please find these listed below.

‘Be calm and full of hope’

God bless.

Kind Regards,
Rory Kennedy
