Thank you for all your continued support and patience during these past few weeks of remote and flexible learning.

Following advice from the Victorian Chief Health Officer, the Victorian Government has advised that schools can begin a staged return to on-site schooling.

ALL special schools students will return to school from Tuesday 26th May. 

To support all school staff to prepare for this transition, Monday 25 May will be a pupil-free day.

Once school has returned, all students will be expected to attend school as normal. This means if you choose to keep your child/children home after their year level has returned to on-site schooling, we can no longer support their learning from home.

To support the health and wellbeing of all our students and staff, our school will continue an enhanced cleaning routine and will encourage frequent hand washing. If you child is ill or is feeling unwell, they must not attend school. They must remain home and seek medical advice.
