Late last night it was communicated by the Department of Education that this Friday 27th March will be a Curriculum Day. Therefore, no students are to be at school, making their final day of this term Thursday March 26, finishing at our normal time of 3.30pm.

This is in response to the Minister for Education, James Merlino approving an additional two pupil-free days for all Victorian Government Schools. The first will be on the last day of this term – Friday March 27 – and the second will be on the first day of Term 2 after the coming school holidays – Tuesday April 14.

Schools have been directed to use this time for preparing for the possibility of school closures.
