Term 4 Arrangements
Term 4 begins on Monday 5th October and all students from Years 7 to 12 will be learning remotely during that week.
The Department of Education will advise us when students in Years 7 to 10 can return to onsite learning. Until this time, students in these year levels will continue with Remote Learning.
If you feel your child needs additional support when learning from home, please contact their House Leadership Team to discuss your concerns.
The GAT Exam
We are very pleased that our Unit 3 and 4 students will be able to sit the GAT at school with added health and safety measures in place at the school.
The GAT Exam takes place at the school, in the Melaleuca Gymnasium, on Wednesday 7th October. All Year 12 VCE students and any Year 11 student studying a Unit 3 and 4 subject will be sitting the GAT Exam.
All students sitting the GAT are expected to arrive at school at 9am and go directly to their House, where their temperature will be taken. Students must be wearing a face mask when at school and in travelling to and from the school. Students will be dismissed from school at the conclusion of the exam.
Return to Onsite Learning – Year 11 and 12 Students
From Monday 12th October, all Year 11 and 12 VCE, VCAL and VET students will return to onsite learning at school. Any Year 10 student who is studying a Unit 1 and 2 subject will be expected to attend those classes onsite.
Hygiene measures are in place to ensure the health and safety of our students and staff, including temperature testing, wearing of face masks, hand sanitiser in every learning space and room of all buildings, and social distancing where practicable.
We will continue to offer onsite supervision for the following reasons, where the student’s year level has not yet returned to on-site learning:
- Children whose parents and carers are essential workers who cannot work from home and where no other arrangements can be made.
- Vulnerable children, including children in out-of-home care or those deemed vulnerable by a government agency, funded family or family violence service, and is assessed as requiring education and care outside the family home.
- Children identified by a school as vulnerable.
- Children with a disability and the family is experiencing severe stress.
If you believe your child meets once of the above criteria, please contact their House Leadership Team to discuss them coming onsite from Tuesday 6th October.
