A Message from Ken and Lisa

Recent Stage 4 restrictions

We would like to thank the school community for your support during our recent 5 day lockdown and three days of remote learning. It is great to have our students back in the classrooms learning.

We understand that changing restrictions and interruptions to students learning routines may be having a large impact on some students. The wellbeing of all our students is our priority and our school staff and teachers are here to support you and your family.  Information that might be of assistance to you in talking to your child about COVID-19 is available. If you are concerned about your wellbeing or that of your child, please contact the school so we can talk with you about how we can best assist. Other sources of support include: Parent Line 13 22 89 and Kids Helpline 1800 55 1800.


The Department’s COVID-19 helpline is also available on weekdays from 8.30am to 5pm on 1800 338 663.


A reminder that if you, your child, or a family member develops symptoms of COVID-19 you should get tested at a COVID-19 testing facility and stay home.


Each family should regularly check the list of public exposure sites in Victoria (where a person with COVID-19 has attended), and if anyone in the family has attended a site at the times listed, follow the instructions given.


Please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s teacher or contact the school if you have any concerns.


Parent Teacher Interviews

Parent Teacher interviews for students in Years 1-6 will be rescheduled to Tuesday 2nd March and Wednesday 3rd March. There is no need to rebook your interview as the time you have already booked will be transferred to the new dates. Therefore, if you booked in for an interview at 4:00pm this Tuesday, your interview will now be at 4:00pm on Tuesday 2nd March.

If you need to change your day/time, or did not book in a time and would now like to, please contact your child’s teacher.

For students in JKB and MFR, there will be some changes to the times booked. If you have a child in one of these grades, please check Compass for further details.
