COVID remote learning update June 3

Dear parents and carers


The Victorian Government has announced arrangements for schools in Victoria from and including Friday 4 June.


Based on advice from the Victorian Chief Health Officer, all schools in metropolitan Melbourne will continue with remote and flexible learning until Thursday 10 June. This includes our school.


Existing arrangements for on-site supervision of vulnerable children and the children of authorised workers continue to be in place.


There is one important change to the current settings.

Students enrolled in schools in metropolitan Melbourne who are enrolled in Unit 3/4 VCE studies and students in their final year of a VCAL qualification will return to face-to-face learning from and including Friday 4 June.


Remote and flexible learning


Naranga School will continue with its remote learning program using Google Classroom and Google Meets.  Your child’s classroom teacher can assist you if you have any difficulties with these learning platforms.


Information is available to support your child’s learning from home


On-site supervision


Our school will provide on-site supervision for students in the following categories:

  • Children whose parents and/or carers are authorised workers who cannot work from home and where no other supervision arrangements can be made, including children of teachers in government schools who are required to return to work on-site.
  • children experiencing vulnerability, including:
  • children in out-of-home care
  • children deemed vulnerable by a government agency, funded family or family violence service, and assessed as requiring education and care outside the family home
  • children identified by a school or early childhood service as vulnerable, (including via referral from a government agency, or funded family or family violence service, homeless or youth justice service or mental health or other health service)


If your child requires on-site supervision, please contact the Principal on 9788 2222.


Face masks


Secondary school students aged 12 or older must always wear a face mask at school, including when attending an Outside School Hours Care (OSHC) program, unless an exception applies.


Children under 12 years of age and students at primary school are not required to wear face masks when at school, or when attending an OHSC program.


Face masks are mandatory for all school students aged 12 or older when travelling to and from school.
