Term 3 2020

By | Events

As you are aware, the Victorian Government has made some significant announcements about the introduction of new measures for schools across metropolitan Melbourne and the Mitchell Shire to reduce the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19).
These include a change to arrangements for schools at the start of term 3.
There will be five student-free days from Monday July 13 to Friday July 17 for all of our students at the Keilor and Niddrie campus and Year 10 students at the Essendon Campus Students at the Essendon campus will attend VCE and VCAL classes from July 13th.
Classes are expected to resume for all students on Monday 20th July 2020.
During this period teachers will be completing their planning for a return to school and the possibility of a return to online learning.
We like all of you, feel unsettled by this, however if the decision is made to resume remote learning in term 3 the college is in a strong position. The positive learning experiences of term 2 with further planning and refinement will ensure that all students of Essendon Keilor College will be supported to learn and achieve together.
As soon as the Department of Education release further details, we will inform you of our plans in term 3.
Stay well,

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
