Guide to On-site Learning

The school in currently in the process of identifying students that may require on-site learning. Only families that meet the Department’s threshold for on-site learning will be notified. Parents and carers who meet the threshold for on-site learning will be asked to complete an Attendance Application Form each week, prior to their child attending on-site.

Step One

  • Consider the information with respect to your personal situation. On-site learning will only be available for children whose parents meet the Department’s threshold. These families are being identified and notified by the school.

Step Two

  • Download and complete the On-site Attendance Application Form indicating the days or part-days you require your child/ren attend school on-site.
  • Submit the On-site Attendance Application Form to the school by 3:00PM, Thursday (this process needs to be completed each week).
  • Applications should be sent to the school email address: john.fawkner.sc@edumail.vic.gov.au

Step Three

  • On receipt of the submitted form, the school may contact you to ensure the application is complete.
  • If the school is satisfied the request meets the Department’s threshold of the student being on-site, they will confirm attendance with the parents/carers and proceed to make the necessary logistical arrangements.
  • It is vital that you make the school aware of any health issues relating to your child who will be attending on-site (for example, Anaphylaxis).
