Dear Parent/carers,

The Premier of Victoria has announced an extension of the current lockdown.  The lockdown period is now due to end at 11:59pm, Thursday 2 September

In addition to the five reasons to leave home, there is now a curfew between 9pm and 5am.

The reasons to leave home are:

  • Essential shopping within 5 km of home (one person per household, once per day)
  • Exercise (2 hours/day) within 5 km of home
  • Caregiving/compassionate/medical
  • Authorised work or permitted education
  • To get vaccinated

All of the remote learning arrangements currently in place for the College will continue.  At this stage we expect to see children return to onsite learning on Friday 3 September.

Work packs for students in Prep – Year 4 must be collected from the Agora between 9am and 1pm on Friday 20 August.

The Early Learning Centre remains open.  Updates on the waiving of gap fees will be sent to ELC parents once we have more information.

The school is only open for vulnerable children, children with a disability who cannot learn from home and children of those parents who are permitted workers.

Please note that there is a scheduled College wide curriculum day on Thursday 26 August.  The ELC will be closed on this day.  There will be no school classes running, children attending onsite will have to go to After Hours Care if you are not able to make other arrangements.

Please check your emails, Compass and the Doveton College Facebook page, regularly.

Please call the College 8765 0111 if you need more information.

Our community has shown great resilience over the course of the pandemic, and I thank you for continuing to support us in the delivery of the remote learning program.

I hope that you and your families continue to stay safe and healthy.


Kind regards,

Deb Gibson
