Health and safety advice for return to on-site schooling in the context of coronavirus (COVID-19)

School Updates: 27/9/20 The Victorian Government announced the Second Step in its roadmap for reopening from 11:59pm on 27 September 2020.

Students enrolled in specialist schools can return to on-site learning from Monday 12 October, unless parents choose to keep their children learning from home for a further period of time.  We will keep parents updated via usual emails and text messages of any changes to drop off and pick up times and entry and exit points to the school.

Special schools remain open for children of permitted workers and vulnerable children in the week of the 5th -8th October. WAS has a pupil free day on the 9th October.
