Flexible Learning

Following advice from the Victorian Government on Tuesday 7 April, Epping Secondary College will be moving to remote and flexible learning from Term 2 (beginning with a pupil-free day).

This is a step all Victorian government schools are taking to help slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). This means that all students who can learn at home must learn from home. This is a very clear directive from the Victorian Government based on the advice of the Chief Health Officer.

We will continue to offer limited on-site learning for those students who need to access this, including for students on days when they are not able to be supervised at home and no other arrangements can be made

There is an On-site Attendance Application Form that will need to be submitted to the school, each week, to determine if the request meets the DET guidelines of the student being on-site.  If parents/carers believe their son or daughter is not able to learn from home in line with the DET guidelines, please contact the school by Tuesday 14 April at 10 AM requesting the form for Week 1 Term 2.  The school will then assess the application.

The Department’s latest advice on coronavirus can be found at https://www.education.vic.gov.au/coronavirus

It is important that we work together and support each other during this challenging time. We will be in touch with staff and parents and carers shortly with further details of what remote and flexible learning will look like at our school.

In the meantime, you might find it useful to look at the Department’s Learning from Home website. It provides resources and guidance for teachers and parents and carers. https://www.education.vic.gov.au/about/department/Pages/learningfromhome.aspx
