Dear Parents/Carers. It’s been a wonderful start to the school year and great to see so many smiling faces at school after a well-deserved break.
Following the Government’s announcements regarding new statewide restrictions that came into effect at 11:59pm on Wednesday 3 February, there is new guidance for schools regarding the wearing of masks.
Even if we had 2020 vision at the start of this year, we still would have been blindsided for what was to come.
Victorian government schools in rural and regional Victoria will commence remote and flexible learning from 5 August 2020 for all students except for students enrolled in specialist schools.
Dear Parents, Thank you for your ongoing support as we continue to navigate our way through new challenges. As you will be aware, a return to remote learning was announced by the Victorian Government yesterday, scheduled to commence from this Wednesday 5th August.
Earlier today, the Victorian Government announced that, on the advice of the Victorian Chief Health Officer, regional and rural Victoria will move to Stage 3 restrictions and metropolitan Melbourne will move to Stage 4 restrictions to slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).
As you may be aware, from 11:59pm on Sunday 2nd August all Victorians 12 years of age and over will be required to wear a face covering outside of the home. This means that our students will be required to wear face coverings at school from Monday 3rd August (Week 4).
Thank you again for your impressive efforts, especially as we transition into new daily routines.
Dear families, As we move towards a return to on-site learning, we’d like to provide you with some additional information to support the transition back to school.
I would like to congratulate our students, parents and staff for the way you handled the first day of flexible and remote learning. Thank you for the patience you showed while we helped sort out usernames and passwords for online applications.
Following advice from the Victorian Government on Tuesday 7 April, Cobden Technical School will be moving to remote and flexible learning from Term 2 (beginning with a pupil-free day).
