I am sure we can all empathise with Sydney based families starting home schooling today. It is a reminder that we need to remain vigilant and keep doing the right things to ensure that we all stay safe. There are recent changes in Victoria that affect arrangements at school. Staff are no longer required to wear masks in school unless they are meeting with parents or people from outside our community.
Parents and visitors must still wear masks and check in with the QR codes if they come inside to the office or to speak to a teacher in their classroom.
We are allowed to run excursions. This includes swimming provided we comply with some additional restrictions.
We are still not allowed to hold assemblies with parents present unless we comply with density limits. Even though our hall is large, when the whole school is present we do not have enough space to have parents or other visitors. It is frustrating but necessary. We thank you all for your ongoing understanding and cooperation.
