We are closely monitoring updates from the Department of Education & Training in relation to our school remaining open. The department is working closely with Victoria’s Chief Medical Officer. Basically the advice on school closures is that we will stay open unless instructed to do otherwise by The Department of Education & Training.

Please be assured that the health and safety of our students, staff and the wider community is of utmost  importance to us.

Please keep your child at home if they are not feeling well and we will call you if your child is feeling unwell at school.
