Back to School

Oct 14, 2020 | News

This week students across Metropolitan Victoria joined Regional Victoria in heading back into the classroom. I am pleased to rise today and applaud each and every student for their outstanding efforts in learning from home.

Learning from home has been challenging, frustrating at times and a new experience for everyone. I especially applaud all the parents who have juggled work, everyday life as well as assisting your kids learn from home.

I think we can all say, we are happy to see them back in the classroom interacting with the classmates and teachers.

No doubt there have been many mixed emotions about returning back to school.

But, I encourage our students to stay positive, reconnect with their school friends and keep up the good work.

And lastly, I thank our teachers, parents and most importantly our students for their efforts throughout these difficult times.
