SCHOOL UPDATE – 5th August 2020 – 3pm

Dear Daylesford, Drummond and Yandoit communities;

We hope and trust that everyone is safe and well. Over recent days we have been working hard to get things set up for our remote and flexible learning phase. Attached to this message is our handbook which outlines the key information relevant to our programs. You will also receive information from your child’s teacher  as the program gets underway.  A few dot points to remember-

At the time of writing we haven’t received the updated Guide from the department so that’s about it for now. If there is anything you need, question you need to ask, or feedback you want to give – please do not hesitate to get in touch.

All the best

Brett Millott



SCHOOL UPDATE – 3rd August 2020 – 12 noon

Greetings Daylesford, Drummond and Yandoit communities, 

There will be a number of these messages over the next couple of days, so thanks for taking the time to read them. Here is a summary of the key points thus far – 

August the 4th & 5th have been declared a pupil free day -students should not attend school on this day 

From August 6th onwards  

Prep to Year 10 students will move to remote and flexible learning.  

On-site supervision in rural and regional Victoria will be available to:  

Children whose parents cannot work from home  
Vulnerable children  
Any child with a disability  

If you require on site learning and are in one of the above categories, you can ring the school or complete the attached form below and return via email: daylesford.ps@education.vic.gov.au. (Attention:Onsite Learning)

For on- site learning places this week you must apply by midday Tuesday August 4th. Karen McHugh our Assistant Principal will be the key contact for this.

If you require IT equipment please call the school office on 53482480. The office will then let you know when the equipment is ready. 

All medication will be sent home with students today, if your child did not attend school today Samantha (our OH&S officer) will contact you directly. 

We are anticipating that DET will provide us with more detailed information this afternoon. We will continue to pass that information on when as we receive it.

SCHOOL UPDATE – 3rd August 2020 – 9am

Information from DET  

Dear parents, carers, students and staff 

Yesterday , the Victorian Government announced that, on the advice of the Victorian Chief Health Officer, regional and rural Victoria will move to Stage 3 restrictions and metropolitan Melbourne will move to Stage 4 restrictions to slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). 

These requirements apply to all schools across the government, Catholic and independent sectors and across all metropolitan Melbourne and rural and regional Victoria. 

The changes to schools’ operations will come into effect from Wednesday 5 August, following a student free day on Tuesday 4 August, and are likely to apply until the end of Term 3. 

There are implications for our school, and for families in our school community. 

A summary of what the changes mean for us is below. 




Staff not required for on site supervision will work from home. 





As per our newsletter we would like to invite you to  participate in our survey.

It is a chance for you to provide feedback on our remote learning program and some feedback that can guide our School Review.
