Hawthorn West Primary School

Hawthorn West Primary School is a dynamic and vibrant learning community where tradition and innovation are woven into the culture and practices of the school. The school caters for approximately 525 students from Foundation to Grade 6 in facilities that are a mix of new and old buildings. These spaces can be used flexibly and are supported by a collaborative, team based approach to teaching and learning.

Term 3 arrangements

Based on advice from the Victorian Chief Health Officer, Victorian Government schools in metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchell Shire will have specific arrangements in place for Week 1 of Term 3 as outlined below. Schools will then move to remote and flexible learning for students in Prep to Year 10 from the start of Week 2.

  • Students in Years 11 and 12, students in Year 10 undertaking VCE or VCAL studies, and students enrolled in specialist schools, will return to school on Monday 13 July.
  • Monday 13 – Friday 17 July are pupil free days for students Prep to Year 10. These pupil-free days will enable our staff to prepare for the change to remote and flexible learning from Monday 20 July.

The purpose of these changed arrangements is to reduce the number of these students – and their parents and guardians – moving across metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchell Shire in order to reduce the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

The Department has a range of options to support students in their learning, available at the Learning from Home website education.vic.gov.au/homelearning

The latest information about coronavirus (COVID-19) and schools is on the Department of Education and Training website: education.vic.gov.au/coronavirus
