Dear Parents, Guardians and Students,

The end of the term is fast approaching and while the future is still in many ways uncertain, we now do have some dates to which we are working towards. 

The Victorian Roadmap provides specific dates for Year 11 and 12 students returning to school (Term 4 – week 2), however the majority of Year 10 students will only leave remote learning when we reach specific thresholds. 

This means October 26th is identified as the earliest for Year 10s being at school unless they are undertaking a VCE or VET unit. 

Victorian Roadmap for Reopening 

The Victorian Government has released its plan for easing COVID 19 restrictions for Victoria and it includes the following decisions about school operations including those at Hallam Senior College.

Weeks 9 and 10 of Term 3: September 7th – 18th 

All schools including Hallam Senior College will continue to provide remote and flexible learning for the remainder of Term 3. Students will continue to learn from home.

Curriculum Day: Friday September 18th 

Webex classes will not occur on the last day of term as teaching staff members undertake professional learning. 

School Holidays: September 19th – October 4th

Term 4 – Week 1: October 5 – 9th. 

Remote and Flexible learning will continue for students. 

VCE and VCAL students can only attend on-site for essential assessments during this week, including the General Achievement Test (GAT) on Wednesday 7 October.

Term 4 – Week 2 – October 12th 

All Year 11 and 12 – VCE/VCAL and VET students and those in year 10 undertaking a VCE/VCAL/VET unit will return to school and study on site. Remote learning will not continue for these year levels. Year 10 students will continue to study remotely.

October 26th

A potential return to school for the remainder of Year 10’s will be dependent on further health advice.
