The Victorian Government announced a continuation of the current lockdown with further restrictions and requirements. 

The current arrangements for remote and flexible learning remain in place, although it will be a requirement to produce a work permit if you are an authorised worker.


As in previous lockdown periods our school will continue to provide on-site supervision for students in the following categories:

Children where both parents and / or carers are considered authorised workers who cannot work from home

Children experiencing vulnerability

As in previous lockdown periods please email the school peninsula.specialist.co@edumail.vic.gov.au if you believe your child might be eligible to attend on-site supervision.


Where there are two parents/carers, both must be authorised workers, working outside the home in order for their child to be eligible for on-site supervision.

For single parents/carers, the authorised worker must be working outside the home in order for their child to be eligible for on-site supervision.

To be considered as an authorised worker please attach a current and up to date Authorised Worker Permit for all supervising adults at your home.


Thank you for your continued support and for keeping all of our students safe during these challenging times for all.

I will continue to keep you updated with information as it is made available.

Should you wish to discuss any of the information provided please do not hesitate to contact the school on 5987 2649.

Take care and stay safe

Peter
