Latest Update (Monday 3 August) 

Dear Families,

Following the announcements from the Premier of Victoria detailing the introduction of Stage 4 restrictions in Metropolitan Melbourne, we write to confirm arrangements for our program and operations at Carey. This week, the following settings will be in place:

  • Prep to Year 10 students will continue with remote online learning from Tuesday 4 August
  • All Year 11 and 12 students undertaking VCE and IB programs will move to remote online learning from Tuesday 4 August
  • Children of Permitted Workers under the Stage 4 lockdown provision and those children identified as very vulnerable will be able to access supervised online learning onsite at Carey during normal school hours from Tuesday 4 August
  • ELC will continue to operate as normal on Tuesday 4 August
  • From Wednesday 5 August onsite ELC will only be available for children of Permitted Workers or those children identified as very vulnerable. Please contact your Head of School if you are unsure as to whether you qualify for this support program

The intent of Stage 4 restrictions is to reduce the number of people moving around the community and we ask you to honour this.

We are very aware of just how challenging these circumstances are for all and remain committed to adjusting our programs and operations as the needs of our community change through this evolving situation. The wellbeing of our community is our highest priority and we will continue to deliver the best possible education during these unprecedented times.

With best wishes,

Jonathan Walter
