Remote Learning

ensuring continuity of learning for our students
Remote Learning at OLGC
Term 3 2021 - Remote Learning from Friday 16th July

The Premier announced that Victoria will enter lockdown from 11.59 pm on Thursday 15 July to 11.59 pm on Tuesday 20 July.

The first priority of OLGC is the health and safety of the students in our care.

All Catholic schools including OLGC will transition to remote and flexible learning during this period.


The latest information about coronavirus (COVID-19) and schools is available on the Catholic Education Melbourne website:www.macs.vic.edu.au/Coronavirus.aspx. Victoria’s Chief Health Officer has confirmed that the use of face masks or coverings by adults or children is not recommended in schools at this time. As has always been the case, students who wish to wear face masks in school and when going to and from school may do so.

And, finally, a reminder that if you, your child or a family member develop symptoms of a fever, chills or sweats, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, runny nose, or loss of smell or taste, you should get tested at a coronavirus (COVID-19) testing facility and stay home. If you test positive, please notify me asap.

If you would like health information from the Department of Health and Human Services, you can visit www.dhhs.vic.gov.au/coronavirus. I will continue to communicate with you as soon as we receive further information.

Thank you for your ongoing support to ensure we all stay safe and well. If you have any questions, please contact me.

Just a quick note to tell you that today has run a lot smoother than I had imagined. I'm very pleased. My kids were motivated and engaged and I was able to do my own work with very little troubleshooting. This is a testament to your staff and to my kids too. On another note, I really hope they can return to school very very very soon. They miss their friends. Praying this is over soon but that all the lessons and innovations we’ve learned and adapted to remain with us and change us for the better.

I would like to congratulate you for the excellent work you and the team at OLGC have done, to implement and work on e-learning. It takes quite an effort to set up a platform of this kind and make it work for the teachers as well as the students, and of course the parents. Once again, congratulations on the efforts of keeping our children education during uncertain times.

It was lovely to see you this morning during the prep google meet. My daughter was very excited about having you in the virtual classroom. I would just like to congratulate the wonderful efforts that the teachers have made to ensure that this new teaching is working. You should be very proud of them. It’s going to be a long term but I think we are prepared and feel very supported.
