Return to College Plan

The current situation changes daily and this makes it difficult for long term planning. However, in an effort to communicate to parents, students and staff how the return to ‘normal’ teaching and learning might look, Dr Quarmby provided an update in a letter to parents last Friday.

Week 5 – Monday, 25 May

All students return – Online lessons will cease. Only face-to-face teaching.

From Week 4 for T-6, Year 11 and Year 12 and Week 5 for the rest of the students
If students remain at home due to parent concerns regarding underlying medical conditions that place their child at a higher risk, work will be provided. Parents will need to contact the class teacher T-6 or the Year Patron 7-12 so that work can be organised.

The work provided will be hard copy booklets or worksheets, material posted on Canvas, or work emailed home. They will not be lessons involving Zoom contact.

Earphones: A reminder to secondary students to bring their earphones or earbuds to classes, particularly while Zoom lessons are still occurring.


Parent Drop-Off and Pick-Up

Thank you to parents who have maintained ‘social distancing’ from students, staff and other parents during drop-off and pick-up times.
While the current situation is still evolving we ask that this continues for the next few weeks until isolation restrictions are further relaxed.
