UPDATE AS OF 12/5/2020

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

Early years students (Prep to Grade 2) and senior secondary students (Year 11 and 12) undertaking the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) and Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL), and all specialist school students will return to on-site schooling. All staff will attend on-site. 


  • Stage 2 - from Tuesday 9 June

Grade 3 to Year 10 students will return to on-site schooling, subject to health advice.

Following advice from the Victorian Government on Tuesday 7 April, Tallygaroopna PS will be moving to remote and flexible learning from Term 2 (beginning with a pupil-free day).

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.
