Department of Education & Training: Talking to your child during Coronavirus.
School Computer Use
We understand that not all students have a computer or tablet to use at home for their learning. Arrangements can be considered for school laptops to be sent home with students next term if they do not have a suitable device at home. These would be for school use only, to complete lessons allocated by teachers through Compass. A user agreement would be signed by the student and parent/carer, accepting any responsibility for misuse or damage. Please contact the office or email email@example.com by midday this Thursday (March 26th) if you would like us to look into this for you, or if you have other concerns about home computer or internet access. Our teachers and support staff are working hard to ensure that all students have suitable arrangements in place if remote learning is required next term.
Monday 23rd March 2020
Dear Camperdown College students and families,
Yesterday the Victorian Government announced additional steps to combat the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), including Victorian students commencing school holidays tomorrow, Tuesday 24 March. As a result, today will be our last day of classes for term one. I will be in contact with families over the holidays when arrangements for next term are confirmed. We have appreciated the opportunity today to provide reassurance to students and send them home with their school books and supplies. As students are on holidays for the remainder of this week they will not be expected to participate in remote learning activities. Teachers have provided VCE and VCAL students with holiday homework and expectations.
Parents/carers will still be able to contact the office by phone this week so please make contact if you have any questions or concerns. Our staff will use the next four days for planning and preparation for the possible transition to remote learning next term.

Cherie Kilpatrick, Principal
