REMOTE LEARNING: UPDATE

REMOTE LEARNING: UPDATE

IMPORTANT INFORMATION – TERM 2

Following advice from the Department of Education and Training, we will be moving to remote and flexible learning from Term 2, to help slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

This means that all students who can learn at home must learn from home. This is a very clear directive from the Victorian Government based on the advice of the Chief Health Officer.

The Department’s latest advice on coronavirus can be found at: https://www.education.vic.gov.au/coronavirus

It is important that we work together and support each other during this challenging time. An email has been sent to all parents/carers this evening (Thursday 9 April, 2020) with further details of how we will proceed.

In the meantime, you might find it useful to look at the Department’s Learning from Home website. It provides resources and guidance for teachers, parents and carers.

Please continue to stay safe and healthy.

‘Innovative Program Award 2019′ – Secondary WINNER

Lilydale High School – ‘Athlete Development Program’

The Athlete Development Program (ADP) offers students who have a sporting passion and talent additional periods of physical education (PE) to further develop their athletic potential, as well as tailoring the curriculum with a sporting theme in English, Mathematics, Science and Humanities to increase student engagement across all key learning areas.

The program aims to retain students at Lilydale High School and to offer them opportunities to pursue both academic and athletic excellence.

The ADP has many benefits for both the school and our students, ranging from improving their physical capabilities to their academic performance.

Ultimately the ADP creates an environment for students to strive to be their best in a supportive environment whilst making great friendships along the way.

CONGRATULATIONS LILYDALE HIGH SCHOOLExcellence in learning, resilience in life, thriving in community.

NEW ZOOLOGY CENTRE & ADMINISTRATION BUILDING

NEW ZOOLOGY CENTRE & ADMINISTRATION BUILDING

On Friday 7 February, we celebrated an important milestone for our school under the Lilydale and Upper Yarra Education Plan.  The Deputy Premier and Minister for Education, James Merlino, as well as MP Harriet Shing came out to our school to undertake a sod turning ceremony, which officially kicked off the start of construction for our Zoology Learning Centre and Administration Building.

Construction of the new facilities is set to be complete in 2020 and will be greatly beneficial to our students and their education journey.

As you know, our school is collaborating with these two schools and other key partners including the Education Department, industry partners and other local secondary and primary schools to support greater educational opportunities and outcomes for students across the Lilydale and Upper Yarra region.

The delivery of these new facilities will make a huge difference to our students, but of course, it’s not just about the buildings.

For over two years, we have been working hard to implement the Lilydale and Upper Yarra Education Plan to transform local secondary education in the area.  The drive behind all the work is to ensure we provide every secondary student with the knowledge, capabilities and attributes that will see them thrive throughout their lives and give them the skills they need to see them succeed in any path they chose to take.

There’s great work ahead of us and it’s an exciting space for our school to be in. Thank you to all our school community, students, parents and staff for the work so far. We can’t wait to continue the work with you all in ensuring high-quality secondary education in Lilydale and Upper Yarra areas and will keep you posted throughout the coming months on the next steps.
