Return to School – Limited Students

Year 11 & 12 students returned to school fulltime during the first week of term.  Our Year 7 students will return to onsite learning fulltime from Monday 11th October. For all other year levels, it will be a staggered start. We will be making use of the open spaces and rooms to ensure we have good ventilation in classes but we need to ensure all students are wearing masks as required. Please remind them to wear their mask to school.

Year 8 and 9 students will attend onsite from Week 2 each Tuesday and Wednesday with remote learning Monday, Thursday and Friday.

Year 10 students will attend onsite from Week 2 each Thursday and Friday with remote learning Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

We hope to all be onsite Monday 25th October. I understand that this staggered return has some challenges for families, as it does for the school and in keeping students connected and accessing their work online. I appreciate the ongoing support and understanding from the school community during this time.

•Please evaluate the build quality of any laptop purchased. The demands of being carried around to classes, and to and from school can take a toll on a computer. Further protection can be added by purchasing a hard cover for your laptop.

•It is the responsibility of each family to ensure the laptop is covered by insurance/warranty in the event of accidental damage or theft. The College accepts no responsibility for damage or loss.

•Laptops need to come to school, fully-charged and ready for use each day. Power supplies cannot be used at school due to the Occupational Health & Safety risks.

•Students must ensure the safety and security of their laptop by storing it in their assigned locker with its lock fastened.

•Laptops cannot be serviced by College technicians. All maintenance and servicing is the owner’s responsibility.

•Transport of the laptop with the screen closed, and using it securely on a desk can minimise risk of damage.

•Plan for the future with a device that will last at-least three years, and meets the demands of their learning.

•Please check the Minimum Specifications of your chosen device.



The Department of Education and Training (DET) provides access to a range of software to support student learning in schools. Your child will be able to access from EduSTAR, through the Beechworth Secondary College network:
