COVID19 Statement August 2020

The COVID crisis has completely changed the way we operate. Continuing to deliver throughout this period requires collaboration, communication, adaptability and flexibility like never before.

Educators have completely re-worked classroom teaching to enable students to continue their learning online. Students have adapted to new technologies while participating in classroom discussions. Administrators and managers continue to develop new processes and procedures to adapt to an ever-changing reality as service delivery remains seamless. We have integrated technology into everything we do from Enrolment Interviews to Orientation Days. Throughout this period of change, one constant remains – the requirement for connection. Implementing new processes allows us to continue to connect throughout the COVID19 period with students, parents and prospective families. 

 

We continue to operate with minimal staff on campus during Stage 4 Restrictions imposed by the Victorian State Government from 11:59 pm Wednesday 5 August 2020. 

For enrolled families, this means:

Where practicable, all students in Prep-Year 12 are to carry out their learning from home during Stage 4 Restrictions. Enrolled families of the college will continue to receive timely information updates through the Parent Communications portal, SEQTA Engage

 

For new families, this means: 

Heritage College continues to accept enrolment applications for future years throughout the Stage 4 Restriction period. For information on the enrolment process, visit the enrolments page. If you have already submitted your application, we will be in touch to negotiate a suitable time for an enrolment interview, which are held via video link during the lockdown period.

While our vibrant campus locations have temporarily quieted due to restrictions, we look forward to delivering more services online than ever before, including Virtual Tours and Open Days for visitors to experience campus life. You can also book a 15-minute enrolment discussion with our Enrolments Coordinator, Jackie Saluni by emailing enrolments@heritagecollege.vic.edu.au.

You can also subscribe to our public news channels on Facebook and Instagram to stay up to date with the latest information.
