Following advice from the Victorian Government on Tuesday 12 May, some students will be returning to school from Tuesday 26 May.
The Victorian Chief Health Officer has advised that it is safe for Victorian school students and teachers to return to on-site schooling in a two-staged approach:
• Stage 1 – from Tuesday 26 May
Prep to Grade 2 will return to on-site schooling. All staff will attend on-site.
• Stage 2 – from Tuesday 9 June
Grade 3 to 6 students will return to on-site schooling, subject to health advice.

Since 2011, our Junior School Council has produced a weekly broadcast every Friday afternoon called CKR (Carrum Kids Radio). If you live near the school or arrive early for Friday assembly, you’ve probably heard the latest Drawing Competition, Mystery Voice, Magnificent Seven, Birthday Stars, Song of the Week and more! On Friday 24 April our Grade 5/6 students broadcast CKR remotely! Below is a link to their show. You can find all their remote broadcasts via this link – CKR Remote Broadcast. Enjoy!
Following advice from the Victorian Government on Tuesday 7 April, Carrum Primary School will be moving to remote and flexible learning from Term 2 (beginning with a pupil-free day on Tuesday 14 April).
This is a step all Victorian government schools are taking 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.
We will continue to offer limited on-site learning for those students who need to access this, including for students on days when they are not able to be supervised at home and no other arrangements can be made. We will provide further information about this shortly.

It is important that we work together and support each other during this challenging time. We will be in touch with staff and parents and carers shortly with further details of what remote and flexible learning will look like at our school.
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 and parents and carers. https://www.education.vic.gov.au/about/department/Pages/learningfromhome.aspx
