School Holiday Program September/October 2020

Due to the extension of Stage 4 restrictions, children will be able to attend vacation care during the Term 3 school holidays (Monday 21 September to Friday 2 October 2020),only if families are permitted workers or for eligible families who attended on-site supervision at school during Term 3.

 

We will operate programs at Pascoe Vale South and Brunswick North West with max 30 children per venue each day; this is due to the limited availability of educators during this challenging time. Appropriate risk-mitigation measures are in place.

All families who wish to enrol for the Sept/Oct program need to provide a copy of the permitted worker permit before making online booking to schoolholidayprogram@moreland.vic.gov.au

Important notices:

 Anyone who is unwell should not attend school, including staff, parents and students. If a student attends while unwell, they will be sent home in accordance with the Department's regular Infectious Diseases policy.

You will not be able to attend the holiday program if:

1. You or any member of your family have been or come into contact with anyone who has COVID-19.

This is vital to ensure that the well-being of children, families and educators is maintained.
