NAPLAN testing will not proceed for 2020. This decision was made by Education Ministers last week in recognition of the disruption caused to schools by Coronavirus (COVID-19).

This has created additional work as teachers prepare for the possibility that schools will need to move to more flexible learning programs, including remote learning.

You can read the full statement from the Education Ministers detailing this course of action.  

We have introduced the availability for parents and carers to message teachers via Compass. Please note that teaching staff may not be able to respond immediately and will endeavour to reply wthin two to three days of receiving a message.

Parents and carers will find a link to instructions on how to message teachers on Compass. Scroll down "My News" to the item "Parents messaging teachers via Compass" to find the link. 

Statement From The Premier

22nd Mar 2020

I will inform National Cabinet tonight that Victoria will proceed over the next 48 hours to implement a shutdown of all non-essential activity across our state to combat the spread of Coronavirus.

This is not something that we do lightly, but it’s clear that if we don’t take this step, more Victorians will contract coronavirus, our hospitals will be overwhelmed and more Victorians will die.

Victorians will still be able to go to the supermarket, the bank, the pharmacy and other essential stores, like petrol stations and convenience stores. Freight, logisitics and home delivery are also considered essential and will remain open.

I will also inform National Cabinet that school holidays will be brought forward in Victoria, starting on Tuesday 24 March.

All measures to be implemented by Victoria are consistent with the health advice provided by the Victorian Chief Health Officer.

The decision whether to re-open schools after the Term 1 holidays will likewise be determined following advice from the Chief Health Officer.

I will have more to say on these measures tomorrow morning.

The Hon. Daniel Andrews, Premier of Victoria
