Term 4 Dates are Monday 4th October – Friday 17th December
On Sunday 19 September, the Victorian Government announced the Roadmap to Deliver the National Plan. The Roadmap, which is based on advice from the Victorian Chief Health Officer, sets out the staged return to onsite learning in Term 4, with the plan being all students returning onsite by Friday 5 November as follows (this will, however, depend on final advice from health authorities closer to each stage).
For our school, this means all students will continue remote and flexible learning from home for the first 2 weeks of Term 4, then return to onsite learning via the following arrangements:
∗ Please note – Friday 15th October will be a Pupil Free Day to ensure teaching and learning programs are not interrupted once students return to learning onsite.
There will be no WebEx sessions on this day as staff will be engaged in professional learning.
Together as a wonderful school community we will work with each other to get through this, and we look forward to seeing you back on site when lockdown eases once again. Please contact your child’s teacher, Cath Buckland or Anne Lawry for any support you may need during this remote learning period.
Stay safe and take care of each other.
We look forward to the students returning back to school after lockdown restrictions have been lifted. Please adhere to all of the Covid safety measures to keep our students and community safe.
All staff must adhere to the social distancing requirements while the students are attending school, and parents are advised to follow all social distancing and facemask rules as they currently stand. Please look for signage at each of our three school entry/exit points to ensure physical distancing is maintained
This stage of school operations both contributes to the continuing efforts to reduce the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) and maximises the learning of our students. It again requires the flexibility, adaptability and resilience that our families have demonstrated so widely throughout this year, and for this we thank the Bimbadeen Community.
Please continue to check Sentral for up to date information and communication regarding returning to onsite learning.

A community resource by Bimbadeen Heights Primary School
We take education seriously.
So seriously in fact that we want to extend education beyond the classroom and have it filter into the community.
One of the foundations of strong communities with healthy people (both mind and body) is access to education.
This free and growing resource is our way of sharing positive and inspiring messages that we feel will have a direct and positive impact on our community.
Something in here for all ages
