New Arrangements for Schools

The Victorian Government has announced new arrangements for schools in Victoria from and including Wednesday 28 July 2021.

Based on advice from the Victorian Chief Health Officer, schools in Victoria will return to face-to-face learning and teaching for all students from this date.


To keep our school safe, we have introduced some important operational changes. This includes limiting access to school grounds to essential visitors by appointment only.

Face masks:

There has been no change to the face mask advice, which will continue to apply to all school settings:

* Secondary school students aged 12 or older must wear a face mask at all times indoors and outdoors when at school, unless a lawful exception applies. 

* Children under 12 years of age and students at primary school are not required to wear face masks when at school.

* Face masks are mandatory for all school students aged 12 or older on public transport and when in taxis or ride-share vehicles. This includes travelling to and from school on public transport or in a vehicle with others not from your household.

Thank you for your continued support during this time. As always, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with any feedback or queries.
