Remote Learning Continues

As announced in the Premier’s briefing on Wednesday, 1st September, the Victorian lockdown has been extended until 23rd September and as such, our community will continue Remote Learning. Whilst Mr Andrews confirmed Melbourne schools will not return to face-to-face learning this Term, the Premier highlighted the possibility of restrictions easing in regional Victoria sooner.

The Victorian Government is also encouraging Secondary students undertaking a VCE Unit 3 & 4 subjects to consider vaccination. Please see important details in our newsletter as this is a personal family consideration.

Remote Learning & Tuition Fees

We understand that the current COVID-19 situation has caused financial pressures on many of our College families and we are reviewing all areas of expenditure and minimising where possible to ensure we can provide financial support to all families. We will provide a further update around Term 3 Fees, Semester 2 Subject Levies and Camp credits early Term 4.

We continue to work closely with all our College families who may be experiencing financial hardship due to COVID-19 restrictions. Our Finance Team have been emailing and/or ringing families that have made contact in the past. If your finances have been affected, please ensure you email our College account, Mrs Dana Brereton on accountant@vlc.vic.edu.au so we can discuss your circumstances and forward a COVID-19 Fee support application.


Miles Learning Centre Update

This project continues to progress with external brickwork and window installation completed last week. This is allowing some of the key internal requirements to commence with plastering the next key requirement starting this week. The ongoing COVID-19 restrictions have reduced the number of tradespeople allowed onsite but our Project Team are working though these challenges and adjusting their schedule to keep everything moving.


Uniform Review

Our Uniform Review Committee are continuing the review process as we look towards updating the College Uniform from the start of the 2023 College year. We are currently meeting with our short-listed suppliers and considering our options with uniform styles and items, improved customer service to our community and implementation.

While this is exciting with an updated uniform in 2023, all College families are reminded that we expect our current uniform to be worn correctly as per our Uniform Guidelines.

Current Uniform Guidelines

There are a number of students who have not been fulfilling this requirement and we ask that our parents/guardians support our Teaching staff by ensuring students are leaving home correctly attired for the day.

As always, please feel free to reach out if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions.

Yours in Christ,

Mr John Thompson
Principal
