LEARNING FROM HOME
Following advice from the Victorian Government on Tuesday 7 April, Bellbridge Primary School will be moving to remote and flexible learning from Term 2 (meaning that students start the learning program on Wednesday 15th April).
This is a step all Victorian government schools are taking to help slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).
This means that all students who can learn at home must learn from home.
This is a very clear directive from the Victorian Government based on the advice of the Chief Health Officer.
We will continue to offer limited on-site learning for those students who need to access this, including for students on days when they are not able to be supervised at home and no other arrangements can be made. Further information about this was provided in a Compass message to parents on 7th April.
The Department’s latest advice on coronavirus can be found at https://www.education.vic.gov.au/coronavirus
It is important that we work together and support each other during this challenging time.
We will be in touch with staff and parents and carers shortly with further details of what remote and flexible learning will look like at our school.
In the meantime, you might find it useful to look at the Department’s Learning from Home website. It provides resources and guidance for teachers and parents and carers. https://www.education.vic.gov.au/about/department/Pages/learningfromhome.aspx
