Letter from Pauline

Please see the attachment below for the latest news from Pauline.

Compulsory wearing of face masks

In line with advice from the Chief Health Officer, the Victorian Government has announced that all Victorians must wear a face covering when they leave home from 11.59 pm on Sunday 2 August 2020. 

Face coverings will be mandatory for people aged 12 and over. These measures will slow the spread of COVID-19 and help protect the community. 

In schools, this means that school-based staff and secondary school students will be required to wear a face covering. 

The Victorian Chief Health Officer has advised that any face covering will be acceptable – it does not need to be a surgical mask. 

Please see the letter from Pauline below regarding the wearing of face masks at school.


Restrictions to those onsite will continue, as will the safety measures that were put in place when students returned in Term 2.  Please see the letter below from Pauline regarding the arrangements for Term 3.

Parents are advised that Before and After School Care will recommence at the normal times.

Please stay safe and remember to social distance.


Parent Helpers and Volunteers

Until further notice, we ask that there are no parent helpers and volunteers in classrooms or school events. Importantly, parents and guardians are still welcome to walk their child into school in the morning and pick their child up at the end of the school day.


Until further notice, all school assemblies are cancelled.

Lunch Orders

Until further notice there wil be no lunch orders offered on Thursdays and Fridays.

School Banking

Until further notice, all school banking is cancelled.

Men's Shed and Sewing Club

Until further notice, all Men's Shed and Sewing Club sessions are cancelled.

Please also remember we are in constant dialogue with relevant authorities and the above information may change at any time.

Sanitisation Measures at the school

The school has increased sanitation measures and the frequency of disinfection in our classrooms and on equipment,  We have minimised visitors to the classrooms and have hand sanitiser on the reception desk for all visitors.  Please be assured that we are doing all that we can to protect and keep safe our students, staff and visitors.

Students learning onsite will need to be signed in by a Parent/Caregiver and temperatures will be taken before entry into the school.  Social distancing restrictions will be implemented.

Wellbeing News

Don't pressure yourself. Don't pressure the kids if they need time to figure it out too, that's OK
Just take one step at a time towards positivity. Our usual coping strategies may have been taken away so don't forget to do some things to
ground yourself, others and give our emotional wellbeing a recharge.

Here are just a few ideas:
- Get some fresh air
- Exercise is always great, no matter how great or small.
- Sit still and take in the world.
- Learn a new skill. Youtube has many amazing instructional videos!
- Write, and it doesn't matter what. Write a journal to look back on or write a fictional story with your family.
Writing is an amazing way of letting feelings and emotions flow.

I have also attached a poster for grounding anxiety,
Many of your children will already know this but if you can print it out and have it in a place that's seen by everyone or a place
that you tend to gravitate toward when you are feeling stressed or anxious. It can be a very quick, very effective way of getting a grasp of anxiety.

Along with setting up a space for your home learning, set a space for relaxation. A voluntary space where anyone can go for a much needed timeout. Where they are essentially 'barleys' for a period of time until they have a grasp of their emotions or anxiety.

Dont forget I am here for a wide range of support and questions no matter what your struggle or stress may be.
I can't wait to see the kids smiling faces and amazing Easter Holiday stories!!!
