‘Aim High’ at Heathmont East Primary School

Heathmont East Primary School has a highly dedicated and talented staff. We work collaboratively to deliver a diverse range of learning experiences, enabling our students to grow socially, emotionally and academically. Our aim is to support and encourage all students develop agency in, and a lifelong love of, learning; striving to ‘Aim High’ in all of their pursuits.

Heathmont East fosters a culture of strong relationships between family and school. We encourage parents to become involved members of our community; attending school events, volunteering for classroom help or as a member of any one of our school committee groups. We believe the people in our community make our school a special and welcoming place in which teachers and families work closely to ensure our students thrive.

We hope that our website provides a valuable source of information and encourage you to contact the school directly should you wish to further discuss the educational opportunities we provide for our students.

COVID-19

Following advice from the Victorian Government on Tuesday 7 April, Heathmont East Primary School will be moving to remote and flexible learning from Term 2 (beginning with a pupil-free day).

This is a step all Victorian government schools are taking 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 https://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. https://www.education.vic.gov.au/about/department/Pages/learningfromhome.aspx
