Executive Director's Update to Principals #34: COVID Update - 18 Jul 2021
Gracious and loving God,
Give wisdom and strength to all those in our community and
around the world, who are responding to the coronavirus – health
professionals, government officials, aged care providers, school leaders.
May those in our community who are feeling anxious,
find peace and reassurance.
May our schools be places of compassion,
attentive to those who are
impacted by the coronavirus.
May we be communities of empathy,
love and care, in all we face.
Through Christ, our Lord, Amen
Following Premier Daniel Andrews’ announcement this afternoon, there is no indication that regional Victoria will come out of lockdown before Tuesday night, and it is still unpredictable whether lockdown will be extended.
Therefore remote learning will continue tomorrow, Monday 19, and Tuesday 20 July, unless otherwise advised.
