College Update

Note: This information has been updated. See Principal's Message on 31 July 2021.


All of our campuses will be learning from home from Saturday 17 July to 31 July 2021. Because of the increased number of cases, we ask that you keep your children at home unless it is absolutely essential for them to attend the campus. The Merewether Campus in Newcastle will continue to provide face-to-face learning at this time.

Our staff has been working hard to develop a suite of learning resources and activities for students to work on from home to provide continuity of learning.

Class codes or shared folders have been created for students to access. The expectation is that students will engage in online lessons on Saturday mornings.

Students need to log on to the electronic class platform at the start of the usual lesson time at 8:30am to be marked present.

At this stage, Year 12 Trials have been rescheduled. Teachers will re-issue the assessment notification electronically.  All our Year 12 HSC students will be supported to do coursework and exam preparation during these challenging times.

Students who require a device to access online learning should contact their home school to assist in this regard. Any student who chooses to attend a Campus must wear a mask and follow COVID-safe procedures.

Parents and carers are urged to contact their Campus on Saturday if they have any questions or queries. Contact details can be found on the Contact Us page.

Thank you for your cooperation during this challenging time for our College and wider community. We will continue to be in regular contact to provide information and updates.
