Coronavirus Update from John Cortese - 8 October 2020

Dear Parents/Carers,

It is with great regret that we have had to cancel our plans to hold a College Production Showcase (6 November) and a Year 12 Graduation Ceremony (3 December) this year. We received revised guidelines from the Department of Education and CECV on Monday 5 October which state that we cannot conduct either of these events. In what has already been a difficult year it is very hard to lose these special and significant days for our students, families and staff. We understand that you might be feeling frustrated and saddened both for your children and for yourselves. We have similar feelings and have explored many different possibilities in the hope that this wouldn’t be the final outcome. Our Graduation Committee which is made up of students, parents and staff will continue to meet and explore creative ways of acknowledging the end of our Year 12s’ journey at Notre Dame College.

We are continuing to explore opportunities to support our Year 12 Students in celebrating and commemorating their time at Notre Dame College. We are currently planning for their last days at school and will have details coming out soon about our plans for their last days at the College.

We are looking forward to having our students all back onsite from Monday 12 October and thank you all again for your support of your children during remote learning.

Keep well
Keep safe

John Cortese
