Following advice from the Victorian Government on Tuesday 7 April, Surrey Hills Primary School has moved to remote and flexible learning from Term 2.
This is a step all Victorian government schools have taken to help slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). This means that all students who can learn at home must learn from home. This is a very clear directive from the Victorian Government based on the advice of the Chief Health Officer.
We will continue to offer limited on-site learning for those students who need to access this, including for students on days when they are not able to be supervised at home and no other arrangements can be made. We will provide further information about this shortly.
The Department’s latest advice on coronavirus can be found at www.education.vic.gov.au/coronavirus
It is important that we work together and support each other during this challenging time. We will be in touch with staff and parents and carers shortly with further details of what remote and flexible learning will look like at our school.
In the meantime, you might find it useful to look at the Department’s Learning from Home website. It provides resources and guidance for teachers and parents and carers.
We are dedicated to creating a safe, dynamic and inclusive learning environment that promotes learning for all. We recognise the importance of growing a caring, community focused and respectful school environment.
As a school, we are committed to providing a variety of learning opportunities for students to learn and develop their academic, social and personal skills, whilst meeting students’ individual needs. We aim to provide rich, in-depth learning opportunities that develop the many different qualities within every child.
Surrey Hills Primary School is a candidate school* for the Primary Years Program (PYP). This school is pursuing authorisation as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy- a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education- that we believe is important for our students.
Our school is committed to continuous improvement and collects performance data, including parent opinion, to inform improvement initiatives.
Staff offer experience and enthusiasm, are committed to their own learning and are proud to be members of the school community.
* Only schools authorised by the IB Organisation can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme (DP), or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorisation will be granted. For further information about the IB and its programmes visit http://www.ibo.org.

Being a school captain is a great way to represent our school. We work as a team to help and organise school events. Along with the other captains in Year 6, we also run our whole school assemblies and together we are role models for the other students in our school.
At Surrey Hills Primary School we are committed to maximising the educational opportunities for all students, striving for continuous improvement and living each day according to our shared values.
I am proud of our staff who are committed to the attainment of excellence, promote life-long learning and who believe that students’ health, safety and wellbeing are essential to their learning and development.
