There’s been great progress with our building project since the demolition works commenced in July.

Substantial foundational works above and below ground have been carried out with the slab for the new part of the project being poured a couple weeks ago.

With a crane onsite we saw the first upright structures being installed today and we expect to see much more structural work happening soon.

Despite the interesting machinery and safety whistles providing background noise, our play and learning continues to be uninterrupted onsite.

In accordance with the State Governments Roadmap out of Lockdown we have commenced a staggered return to onsite learning this week. We were so pleased to welcome our Foundation students back to school on Monday morning and look forward to other students joining us in the coming days and weeks.

Students from other grades will return to school according to the table below.

REMOTE LEARNING: Remote Learning will continue for all students in its current format on the days they are not scheduled for Onsite Learning.

ONSITE SUPERVISION: Permitted workers can access onsite supervision in the same way as usual on the days their children are not attending Onsite Learning.

FACE MASKS: Face masks are now required to be worn indoors by all students in Grades 3-6 whilst on school premises and if travelling to and from school via school bus. For students in grades F-2 this is not a requirement but is recommended by the Victorian Chief Health Officer.

Unfortunately we are unable to provide prospective families with school tours or face to face interviews due to current restrictions however we are continuing our Foundation enrolment process in preparation for 2022.

If you or anyone you know are wishing to enrol your child for 2022 please contact the office on 5997 1653 to obtain an enrolment pack and to book a phone interview at their earliest convenience.

A First Eucharist Workshop, for 2020 and 2021 candidates and their parents, will be held this Wednesday 18th August, at 7pm via Zoom.

Following the success of the previous First Eucharist Workshop another has been planned for this Wednesday for those families who were unable to join us last week.

Mrs Bernadette Hance and Mrs Leonie Hester will host this Workshop during which candidates will be asked to confirm their commitment to the preparation of their First Eucharist.

Families will be provided with a link to join the meeting via Seesaw or an email.

We are so pleased that families and staff have embraced technology to allow us to meet and continue preparations towards candidates receiving their sacraments this year.
