MACS executive director Jim Miles said advice yesterday from Victorian Acting Premier James Merlino and the Department of Health that all Catholic schools can now re-open to full capacity is welcome news.
“We know that students learn best when they are at school with their teachers and classmates,” he said.
“The return to the classroom will also be a boost to students’ wellbeing as they reconnect with friends, teachers and school routines. Schools will monitor the impact of the lockdown period on students and provide additional support for any who may have fallen behind or be struggling emotionally.
“I again congratulate and thank our principals, teachers, and staff for the incredible work they have done to support the learning continuity and wellbeing of their students.”
The prep to 10 students join regional Victorian students and years 11 and 12 students who returned to school last Friday.
