RETURN TO SCHOOL ONSITE POLICY

RETURN TO SCHOOL ONSITE POLICY

Dear Parents and Carers

Thank you once again for the way in which you have worked with us over the past 7 weeks, everyone at LHS has appreciated your understanding, assistance and support during this time.

We welcomed the VCE students back on Tuesday 26 May; it was great to see them reconnecting with teachers and peers once again.

I have written to the Year 7 – 10 students, who will begin onsite learning on Tuesday 9 June, to explain some of the new protocols/processes that we have in place to ensure we are doing everything recommended by the Chief Health Officer in relation to COVID 19.

Attached is a policy developed in response to the current situation, please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

The teachers will be spending the rest of Term 2 assisting students to settle back into onsite learning, if you have any concerns contact the Sub Schools or Student Wellbeing Coordinators.

Kind regards

Wendy Powson
Principal

LILYDALE LEVEL CROSSING

LILYDALE LEVEL CROSSING

Works alert – Vegetation removal, temporary lane closure and parking removal

This works alert provides an overview of the construction activities that you may notice from Monday 25 May, 2020.

The alert includes tree removal on William Street East (near to the Lilydale High School) and continuation of the test pile works in the Lilydale Station commuter car park.

William Street East

To allow construction work on the Maroondah Highway level crossing removal to continue safely, there will be changes to the on-street parking on William Street East near the Lilydale High School entrance.

Parking will be intermittently removed from June and parents are asked not to use this location from Term 3 onwards, as parking will be permanently removed from the school side of the road. Pedestrian access will remain open.

Parents of students attending the school are advised to use the stadium car park to drop off students from Term 3 onwards.

BACK TO SCHOOL DATES

BACK TO SCHOOL DATES

Dear Parents/Carers and Students

Children in Victorian government schools have been undertaking remote and flexible learning and care since the start of Term 2.

The Victorian government has announced that students, teachers and support staff can return to face-to-face teaching. This follows advice from the Victorian Chief Health Officer.

The return to school will take place in two stages:

Tuesday 26 May – VCE & VCAL students
Tuesday 9 June – Year 7 to 10 students

To support all school staff to prepare for the transition, Monday 25 May will be a pupil-free day. This is important to enable the planning necessary to ensure the successful transition back to school can be completed.

Year 10 students studying a VCE OR VET SUBJECT

Those students who are in a ‘stand alone’ Year 10 VCE class (meaning there are only Year 10 students in the class), remote learning will continue until JUNE 9.

For those who are in a mixed VCE class (Year 10 and 11 students), where practicable, Year 10 students can attend the VCE class on site.  If it is not possible to find transport, the teachers will provide work on Compass until June 9 when all students return.

VET students

An email was sent to students on Friday 15 May from Mr Kogelman:

With the announcement from the Department of Education on the return to face-to-face teaching there may be some changes to the way that your VET course is delivered. Some courses will remain online for the duration of this term, while others will return to face-to-face teaching. 

More information about your course will be provided next week from your VET provider.

If you haven’t yet heard from the VET provider, please call them to clarify.

Those VET courses that take place at Lilydale High School (Animal Studies and VET Acting) will remain as remote classes at this stage. Mr Whitby and Ms Louis will advise you regarding any changes to this arrangement.

LHS ISOLATION BAND

LHS ISOLATION BAND

In a time of social isolation, Lilydale High students, ex-students and teachers have combined to present this video.

We may be caught in a ‘Riptide of Remote Learning’ – but as a community, we can all join together and continue to achieve excellence in learning, resilience in life and thriving as a community.

Featuring students, ex-students and staff performing on their instruments, all of the sound is produced by those featured. Mixed, mastered and produced by Ms Cumming and Miss Wells (Music Department staff).

Thanks to all who participated and for their time to perform and record this little isolation band project.

Stay healthy, stay home, play music, be active and stay safe.

REMOTE LEARNING

REMOTE LEARNING

Following advice from the Department of Education and Training, Lilydale High School 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.

https://www.education.vic.gov.au/…/Pa…/learningfromhome.aspx

Please continue to stay safe and healthy.

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.
