College Management of Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Updated - October 13, 2022

The Victorian Government has ended its pandemic declaration as of 11:59pm Wednesday, 12th of October. This brings to a conclusion the remaining requirements listed in the Pandemic Orders, including the requirement to isolate after testing positive to COVID-19. However, there remain a number of strong recommendations for how the community can self-manage COVID-19 infection.

In line with these recommendations, we would encourage families to continue to report any positive test results from students via our online form above.

If a student does test positive to COVID-19, it is strongly recommended that they isolate for a period of 5 days and do not attend school until their symptoms have been resolved. Students’ learning will continue to be supported during their absence through the provision of learning materials and course work where appropriate on Canvas.


There will no longer be any requirement for students to wear masks on school buses, both for excursions and before and after school travel. However, students who choose to wear masks at school will continue to be supported in that choice.


As part of the changes to the pandemic declaration, the College has also been informed there is no longer an obligation to report COVID case numbers to the community or report them to the Department of Health. Therefore, we will cease those reporting obligations.
