Updates to our calendar of events

Term 3 begins for all students on Wednesday 22nd July

At-home learning began for all SCEGGS students on Tuesday 24 March and continued for the first two weeks of Term 2. On Monday 11 May, all Year 12 students returned to full-time, face-to-face learning onsite. Students in Kindergarten through to Year 11 attended school every third day on a rotational system, with Years 3-11 attending by House and Years K-2 attending by class. Full time face-to-face learning onsite resumed for Year 11 on Monday 18 May and for Kindergarten – Year 10 students on Friday 22 May.

The advice from State and Federal Government Departments about managing COVID-19 is continuing to evolve. Throughout Semester 2, we will continue to monitor the situation and update our community as revised information comes to hand.

The health and safety of our girls, staff and families is uppermost in mind and we will continue to reflect carefully about all operations of the school, and the regular advice being given to us all. The modifications we have made to our calendar of events based on the current advice are outlined below.

This page will continue to be updated as circumstances evolve.

Last updated: 23 July, 1.30pm.
