Flexible Remote Learning
The Victorian Government has advised that all schools will move to remote and flexible learning when students return for Term 2 on Wednesday 15 April.
This means that all students who can learn at home must learn from home. This is a very clear directive by the Victorian Government based on the advice of the Chief Health Officer. We are about to embark on transition learning at YRPS to a flexible remote model. Our staff have been busy and working incredibly hard towards this.
Already used in our classrooms, we selected the DET endorsed version of Google Apps for Education (Google Classrooms) as the ultimate platform, a whole-school approach for Flexible and Remote Learning for our Prep to Year 6 students. This commences in Term 2 from Wednesday 15th April. Now more than ever, we need your support to help learning continue at home. Compass will continue to be the home of our main communications with our families and carers. if you would like to contact a teacher directly, please use the email button on your child’s compass grade page (accessible through the browser). Please ensure you have your push notifications turned on and your email address and contact number is current and up-to-date.
Following advice from the Victorian Government on Tuesday 12 May, some students will be returning to school from Tuesday 26 May.
The Victorian Chief Health Officer has advised that it is safe for Victorian school students and teachers to return to on-site schooling in a two-staged approach:
- Stage 1 – from Tuesday 26 May
Early years students (Prep to Grade 2) and senior secondary students (Year 11 and 12) undertaking the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) and Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL), and all specialist school students will return to on-site schooling. All staff will attend on-site.
- Stage 2 – from Tuesday 9 June
Grade 3 to Year 10 students will return to on-site schooling, subject to health advice.
