Dear Parents, Guardians and Students,
The Victorian Government has announced arrangements for all students to return to on-site/school based learning. Based on advice from the Victorian Chief Health Officer, schools in metropolitan Melbourne will return to face-to-face learning and teaching for all students.
At Hallam Senior College, this means Year 10 students will join Year 11 and 12 students and return to school based classes on Tuesday June 15th – Day 1 of Semester 2. The Semester 2 timetable will operate from June 15th with Year 10 students beginning their new elective options.
Year 10 and 11 students will complete exams today – Thursday June 10th. Friday June 11th is Correction Day (Student free day – no classes) for the college with teachers marking exams and reports being finalised for Semester 1. Reports will be uploaded to compass and ready for parents in the week beginning June 21st.
Until further notice and consistent with advice for the broader community, school staff and secondary school students must wear a face mask at school, unless an exception applies:
- in all indoor spaces
- in all outdoor spaces when 1.5m physical distance cannot be maintained
- when travelling to and from school on public transport.
Visitors and parents must also observe this guidance. All visitors must also sign into the college by using the QR code found at the college reception area.
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.
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.
If you are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccination, please check out the website for information and bookings. Getting vaccinated goes a long way to keeping our schools and businesses open and our communities safe.
Please don’t hesitate to contact the school if you have any concerns.
Mr Greg McMahon
