Return to On-site Schooling

Thank you for all your support during these past few weeks of remote and flexible learning. Following advice from the Chief Health Officer, the Victorian Government has advised that schools can begin a staged return to on-site schooling from May 26th for Year 11 and 12s and June 9th for Year 7 to 10s. The links below provide more detailed information in various languages. Until this time all students who can learn at home must learn from home. This is a very clear directive from the Victorian Government based on the advice of the Chief Health Officer. If your child(ren) is/are unable to learn from home email cranbourne.east.sc@edumail.vic.gov.au. Students, staff and the community are to continue to follow the relevant College processes, procedures, policies and dress code during this time.

Year 11 & 12 Students

This document provides information for Year 11 and 12 students relating to the operation of the school during the return to school from remote learning. 

The school is committed to providing a safe workplace/teaching and learning environment in the current circumstances.  It will also address and manage the health, safety and well-being needs of students, staff and the community. This will ensure that the Teaching and Learning Program can operate effectively in a safe environment and students, staff and the community are clear about expectations and responsibilities.

Message to Parents and Guardians

Move to Remote and Flexible Learning

Following advice from the Victorian Government on Tuesday 7 April, Cranbourne East SC will be moving to remote and flexible learning from Term 2 beginning with a pupil-free day on April 14th.

This is a step all Victorian government schools are taking to help slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). This means that all students who can learn at home must learn from home. This is a very clear directive from the Victorian Government based on the advice of the Chief Health Officer.

We will continue to offer limited on-site learning for those students who need to access this, including for students on days when they are not able to be supervised at home and no other arrangements can be made. An email outlining these arrangements and how to notify the college was sent to all primary families on April 9th.

The Department’s latest advice on coronavirus can be found here.

It is important that we work together and support each other during this challenging time. An email was sent to parents, guardians and students with further details of what remote and flexible learning will look like at our school. Expectations for student and parents for remote learning  can be viewed here. 

You might also find it useful to look at the Department’s Learning from Home website. It provides resources and guidance for parents and guardians. 

The wellbeing of your child is our priority and our Wellbeing team will be in constant communication with some students during term 2.  If you are concerned about your child and believe that a check in is necessary could you please let our Wellbeing Leader, Marianne McEwen know through Compass or a phone call.

The College’s leaders, teachers and non-teaching staff have taken on a significantly increased workload, in these uncertain times, to ensure your child continues to learn and be connected to school.  We thank you for your patience as we try to work through the impact of COVID – 19 on the school operations.

Communication is key to ensuring that everyone is kept up to date, if you do not have your Compass login details they can be reissued here. Please see below the members of the Principal team and Year Level Leaders who are always available.  Please use Compass to contact them.
