03.02.21 Face Masks in Schools Update

Dear Families, 

The Victorian Government has announced an easing of restrictions.

 At schools, this means that face masks are no longer mandatory in all indoor spaces for school staff and secondary school students.

 Requirements for the use of masks are outlined below. Visitors and parents must also observe this guidance.

 • Face masks are recommended, but not mandatory, for use by staff, students and visitors when physical distancing of 1.5 metres cannot be maintained.

 • People aged 12 years and over must always carry a face mask – unless they have a lawful exemption.

 • People aged 12 years and over must wear a face mask when on public transport, school buses and when in taxis or ride share vehicles – unless they have a lawful exemption.

 • There are a number of lawful excuses for not wearing a face mask, including for staff and students who are unable to wear a face mask due to the nature of their disability. This includes students or staff who have a medical condition, such as a breathing problem, a serious skin condition on the face, or a mental health condition.

 

Regards,

07.09.20 Schools Coronavirus (Covid-19) update

Dear Families,

I hope that you are all well and the children have enjoyed a well-deserved break.

 In recent days the Victorian Government has made a series of significant announcements about the introduction of new measures across metropolitan Melbourne to reduce the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

These include announcements about a change to arrangements for schools at the start of Term 3. The Victorian Government has directed that:

  1. There will be five pupil-free days from Monday 13 to Friday 17 July for all students from Prep through to Year 9.
  2. For these days, schools have been directed that a care and supervision program will be provided for only those students whose parents/carers cannot work from home.

These steps have been identified as critical measures to protect the safety of us all.

 We are awaiting further information from the Department and as always we will be responsive in communicating this information with our school community as we receive it.

 Thank you for your continued patience, support and care during these unprecedented times.

 Please continue to stay safe and healthy.

Kind Regards,

Jenny Crowle

Coronavirus - Last Updated 23/03/2020

23.03.2020

Dear Families,

Yesterday the Victorian Government, with the support of the Chief Health Officer, announced the bringing forward of school holidays in Victoria, commencing from Tuesday 24th March.

From Tuesday 24th until Friday 27th March a supervision program for primary school students whose parents are essential service workers, for example health, police, corrections and  emergency services will be in place.

There is no obligation for students who are children of essential workers to attend school this week but we will provide care and a supervision program for these students if it is needed.

Thank you for your efforts this term to support your child’s learning and your flexibility during this unprecedented time.

We wish you all a happy and safe term break and we will continue to provide updates via Compass and the College website https://truganinap9.vic.edu.au/.

Kind Regards

Jenny Crowle

Dear Families,

A very warm welcome back to the 2020 school year. I trust that you had a restful holiday with family and friends. It has been fabulous speaking with your children and hearing about their holiday and the books they have read over the holiday break.

At the start of the school year, I would like to extend a special welcome to our new students and families.

It is my great pleasure and privilege to have your children at our College. Your trust and support to ensure your child is learning both academically and socially is very much valued and appreciated.

Coinciding with the start of the school year there has been conflicting information being presented in relation to the coronavirus.

I am writing to you today to reassure you that the College is closely monitoring the situation and following the most up to date advice as issued by the Department of Education and Training after instruction from Victoria’s Chief Health Officer and the Department of Health and Human Services.

I have attached the most recent factsheet for school students, staff and families. You will see accurate information included in this fact sheet. Please note the advice in regards to any student, families or staff members who have travelled to Hubei Province, China in the last 14 days.

Coronavirus Factsheet 01.30.2020

It is recommended that all other students are to attend school as normal.

School commenced on Wednesday the 29th January for students in Years 1-9, 30th January for students in Year Foundation with all new enrolments beginning accepted from Monday the 3rd February 2020.

School starts at 8.35am. With the current construction works around the school, I ask that you allow adequate travel time so that your child is at school on time, settled and ready to commence the days’ learning by reading.

If you have any questions or require more information, please contact Lisa Rouvray on 9368 9800.

Yours sincerely

Noone Imagewear are the uniform supplier for Truganina College.

The following photos showcase the uniform. Please note the students are wearing either black runners or school shoes. If you have any questions about the uniform please contact Noone Imagewear direct on 9749 0543.

State Schools’ Relief

State Schools’ Relief helps students with footwear and clothing for school. They help students that may be facing challenges like trouble at home, family illness, students who have lost everything due to house fires and natural disasters or help out if the parents can’t afford the uniform and shoes for school.

State Schools’ Relief work with every government school in Victoria to make sure that all students regardless of background can participate in school activities and have access to education.

If you or your parent/guardian is struggling to provide your uniform for school; please contact the school office on 9368 9800 for assistance.

clk2sell App

clk2sell app is a fast way for parents to buy and sell second hand uniforms.

In 2014, State Schools’ Relief launched clk2sell – a smartphone solution to buy and sell second-hand school uniforms. With the new term and season change, it’s a great time to upload and sell those unwanted uniform items.

Close to 100 schools are now using the app – saving time and money. State Schools’ Relief is encouraging more schools and parents to get on board to reap the benefits. “Parents have saved 50-70 per cent”, said State Schools’ Relief CEO, Stephen Isles.

By being able to purchase uniforms at a reduced price children can wear the appropriate uniform and in turn gain the confidence to attend school without feeling embarrassed.

Hear about how the clk2sell app works and the benefits experienced by parents and schools already using the app. Watch the clk2sell video.

For more information about this resource go to www.clk2sell.com or email info@clk2sell.com​.​​

Outside School Hours Care

We are proud to partner with Camp Australia to provide our outside of school hours care program.

To help families prepare for the new school year, bookings for Outside School Hours Care are now open for 2020.

So that Camp Australia can care for all students, they do recommend that families register an account with them and always book in advance.

Why register? To attend the care of Camp Australia, parents/guardians must register their child by completing an online enrolment form via the parent portal. It’s very important that parents/guardians fill out all compulsory enrolment documentation for their child and notify Camp Australia of any medical conditions, illnesses and other, to ensure the health and safety of all children in their care.

To find out more about the program at our school, including hours of operation, fees and how to register, please click the link below.

To assist you with applying for a Working with Children Check please click the image below. The link will direct you to the website to fill in your application.

All community volunteers at Truganina College are required to have a valid Working with Children Check.

Statement on Insurance at School

The Department of Education and Training (DET) does not provide personal accident insurance for students. Parents/guardians of students who do not have student accident insurance are responsible for paying the cost of medical treatment for injured students, including the cost of ambulance attendance/transport and any other transport costs. Parents/guardians can purchase insurance policies from commercial insurers. Personal property is sometimes brought to school by students, staff and visitors. This can include, but is not limited to mobile phones, electronic games, calculators, toys, musical instruments, sporting equipment, and cars parked on school premises. The Department of Education and Training does not hold insurance for personal property brought to schools and it has no capacity to pay for any loss or damage to such property. It is probably wise for valuable items to be left at home. For further information, please contact DET Central Staff member: Jane Wilhelm at wilhelm.jane.j@edumail.vic.gov.au or phone 9637 2509.
