Mrs Duggan and Miss Samadi explain what will be different when students return to Fountain Gate Primary School!
Returning to School
Following advice from the Victorian Government on Tuesday 12 May, some students will be returning to school from Tuesday 26 May.
The Victorian Chief Health Officer has advised that it is safe for Victorian school students and teachers to return to on-site schooling in a two-staged approach:
Stage 1 – from Tuesday 26 May
Early years students (Prep to Grade 2) and senior secondary students (Year 11 and 12) undertaking the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) and Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL), and all specialist school students will return to on-site schooling. All staff will attend on-site.
Stage 2 - from Tuesday 9 June
Grade 3 to Year 10 students will return to on-site schooling, subject to health advice.

Fountain Gate Primary School is now teaching classes via remote learning. Each morning, students are expected to open their google classroom app (iPad or tablet) or go to classroom.google.com (laptop/PC) and check in to their classroom. Once they have checked in, they will be able to access work posted by their classroom teacher.
Students are able to communicate with their teacher directly using Google Classroom. If parents would like to contact their child's teacher, they can do so by going into Compass and selecting the email teacher option.
There is a lot of technical support being offered by the school, please call us if you are having any technical problems.
Thank you all for your patience as we work on developing and refining our remote learning practices, with the aim of making the learning effective and as straight forward as possible for you and your children.

An update from the Principal
Dear FGPS Community,
Thank you for your assistance at this challenging time, we really appreciate your efforts in supporting your children and your school. The Victorian government has announced return to school dates. They are:
Preps, 1s and 2s will return to school on Tuesday 26th May
3's, 4's,5's and 6's will return to school on Tuesday 9th June
The start and finish times for these days, and drop off and pick up requirements will be announced as soon as possible. If your child is at school at the moment, they will continue to attend.
Please note, Wednesday 20th May, and Monday 25th May will be pupil free days. There will be no remote learning presented on these days. Students can use these days to catch up on work not completed, or enjoy a relaxing break.
When students return, they will need to bring a named drink bottle, as the school taps will no longer be used.
We will be doing everything possible to keep your children safe, including limiting adult access to the school grounds, temperature testing, hand sanitising, staggering times and many other adaptations that may be needed.
We will be in touch with more detalis as soon as possible.
Finally, we can't wait to see our students again! Let's all hope that everything goes well in the next two weeks and we will see our children back here on the dates above. Each and every FGPS family has helped Victoria achieve the success we have now by supporting the school. Well done community, see you soon.
From your very proud principal, Jenny Duggan
