Umina campus starts staged returns next Monday

Umina campus of Brisbane Water Secondary College will start its staged return to school from next Monday, May 11.

All students will be able to attend school for one day per week.

Principal Ms Kerrie O'Heir said parents and carers should have heard from the school by the end of last week with information about the plan for the staged return to school starting Monday.

Students would continue with online and remote learning until then.

During this time, parents would be encouraged to keep their children at home.

Packages of work would be available from the school front office for those students who did not have internet access to the work through Google Classroom.

These packages would contain each students' whole curriculum for Term 2, all of which would be able to be completed online and by remote learning.

Ms O'Heir said: "We are currently working on a model for this staged return of students and appreciate your understanding as we create a process that is the safest for all.

"Students coming to school during the staged return will be supervised by staff but not their timetabled teachers.

Students will have to bring their own lunch to school as the canteen will not be open.

Ms O'Heir said the three College principals were working together to provide continuity for families which had students on both campuses.

"However, there will be differences in the plan given the differing learning contexts of a junior and a senior campus," she said.
