Term 2 Classes underway

  • All language classes of the Victorian school of Languages are being delivered with both the teachers and the school-aged students working from home.
  • This method of online delivery will be in place for all of Term 2.
  • VCE courses will be delivered as usual although the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority may change some dates – teachers and students will be informed of any changes.
  • The Distance Education courses (classes) resumed today, Wednesday 15 April and continued from where they left off in Term 1.
  • The majority of Centre classes will resume on Saturday 18 April, with equivalent dates mid-week, through online distance provision.
  • There will not be classes on ANZAC Day 25 April.
  • Students in Centre classes must be available to be in contact with their Language teacher on the same dates and times as for when they physically attended the Centres. For Term 2 the dates are as follows: (Saturdays): 18 April, 2 May, 9 May, 16 May, 23 May, 30 May, 13 June, 20 June, (27 June is VCE only). There are equivalent dates for mid-week classes.
  • Parents can assist their child/children working from home by providing:
    • an appropriate learning environment between 9.00am and 12.15pm where the students will not be interrupted;
    • a digital device (ipad, laptop) with access to email, internet and telephone; and
    • assistance with learning tasks and other support as required.
  • All school-related gatherings including excursions, concerts, student seminars and activities related to the school’s 85th Anniversary have been cancelled.
  • Due to the COVID-19 all new online student enrolments are suspended until next Term for both Centre classes and Distance Education classes. There are separate arrangements for International students.

Thank you for your patience during these difficult times but we remain focused on delivering quality education.
Let us hope that we can resume our normal life as soon as possible and bear in mind the wonderful contribution being made by our Health Workers.

Best wishes for a safe Term 2.
