Important Update from John Cortese - 23 October 2022

Dear Parents and Families,

We look forward to welcoming all our staff and students back to school on tomorrow, Monday 24 October 2022.

If your child cannot safely get to school, teachers are maintaining the google classroom and will post details and digital resources for each timetabled class. Students are asked to do what they can and stay connected with their teachers. All student absences should be advised by either emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or phoning the College.

VCE/Scored VET Unit 3/4 Subjects: reminder that teachers will be available as per timetable to assist students in the lead up to the VCAA exams commencing on Wednesday. Students are encouraged to work closely with their teachers in preparation for the exams.

The floods have seen an increase in mosquito activity at both Knight Street and Emmaus campus, so we highly recommend you bring roll on or cream-based repellent to protect yourself for the journey and during recess and lunch time.  Students are permitted to wear you long PE tracksuit pants or winter trousers without infringement whilst the mosquitoes are problematic.
