Parents and carers are reminded they must register in advance each week to access on-site learning during Term 3. This is in line with strict protocols introduced by the Department of Education and Training for public schools across Victoria.

The application form for the week of 7- 11th September is document here (131 KB) . It must be completed and emailed to GSSC by Wednesday, 2nd of September. Parents will be notified of their application's success or otherwise by the close of business on Friday, 4th September. All students accessing on-site learning will attend their regular campus.

All students who can study from home must study from home, except for students in the following categories:

  1. Children on days when they are not able to be supervised from home and no other arrangements can be made. This will be available for children of parents who cannot work from home, and vulnerable children, including: children in out-of-home care; children deemed by Child Protection and/or Family Services to be at risk of harm; children identified by the school as vulnerable (including via referral from a family violence agency, homelessness or youth justice service or mental health or other health service and children with a disability)
  2. For learning requirements that cannot be conducted via distance, and considering operational requirements, small groups of VCE and VCAL students are permitted to attend school, with appropriate physical distancing and hygiene measures in place.

Dear parents and carers and students

I’m writing to update you about the situation at Greater Shepparton Secondary College – Wanganui Campus, after a student tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19).

I’d like to thank the entire school community at the outset for your patience and understanding during this difficult time.

The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), as the lead health agency, has now completed its risk assessment.

As part of its investigation, DHHS has identified people who have potentially come into close contact with the student who tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19). It provided direct and specific advice to these individuals and their families about quarantine and looking after themselves.

If you were not contacted by DHHS directly, then you are not considered to be a close contact.

DHHS has also advised the school it can re-open from Monday 24th August now that appropriate cleaning has completed.

If you have been identified as a close contact, you must quarantine for 14 days. You cannot attend the school until the quarantine period specified by DHHS has concluded.

Next steps

To slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), Stage 3 restrictions apply for regional and rural Victoria, and Stage 4 restrictions apply for metropolitan Melbourne.

All schools across Victoria will continue remote and flexible learning, for all year levels, for the rest of Term 3, except for specialist schools in rural and regional Victoria.

 On-site supervision in regional Victoria is available for students whose parents/guardians cannot work from home and where no other supervision arrangements can be made, vulnerable children and any child with a disability based on parent choice.

 Face coverings are compulsory for all Victorians over the age of 12. The exception to this is students over the age of 12 attending primary school, who are not required to wear a face covering while at school. Further information on the use of face coverings in schools can be found on the DHHS website.

The school will continue to work closely with both DET and DHHS during this time, and we wish the affected student a speedy and safe recovery.

Yours sincerely,
