Term 4 on-site schooling arrangements for students

Springside West News & Events

Following advice of the Victorian Chief Health Officer, the Victorian Government has released a staged approach for students to return to on-site schooling.

The purpose of the plan is to get students back in the classroom as soon and as safely as possible without putting at risk all that has been achieved through the period of restrictions to reduce the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

For our school, the following arrangements apply:

59 October (first week of Term 4)

  • remote and flexible learning will continue for all students
  • VCE and VCAL students can only attend on-site for essential assessments, including the General Achievement Test (GAT) on Wednesday 7 October
  • on-site supervision for children of permitted workers and vulnerable students will continue to be provided, consistent with existing guidelines.

From 12 October (second week of Term 4)

  • students in Year 7 will return to on-site schooling. The existing remote learning program will not continue for these year levels
  • Students enrolled in years 11 and 12 (and students in any other year level undertaking VCAL or VCE studies) will attend on-site schooling
  • remote and flexible learning will continue for all students in Year 8 to Year 10 (except students in any other year level studying VCE and VCAL units)
  • on-site supervision will remain available for students in Year 8 to Year 10 who are the children of permitted workers and vulnerable students.

From 26 October (fourth week of Term 4)

  • students in Year 8 to Year 10 will return to on-site schooling. The existing remote learning program will not continue for these year levels
