Impacts to College Events

Please view the Simon calendar to view suspended or cancelled events and activities. 

Continuing Learning during School Closure

From Tuesday 24 March through Tuesday 14 April, students will be on holidays.

Students will commence online learning from Wednesday 15 April 2020 (Day 3) per their normal timetable. This will continue for the duration of Term 2.

We will notify all parents, guardians, staff and students as more information becomes available.


Our staff are doing their best to ensure that the learning experience continues to serve all members of our Community.

Teachers will teach their classes as per the school timetable. Students will join their Google Classroom at the regular timetabled period and follow instructions from there. Teachers may have a video conference via Zoom, collaborate on Google Classroom or ask students to work on exercises during that class. Students will be able to upload tasks onto Google Classroom and receive feedback via Google Classroom.

Student Queries for Accessing Remote Learning

Any query by a student about accessing the remote learning portals, please email ICT Helpdesk at

Nazareth College Learning Plan for the Community

We have created a document to help navigate online learning for parents, students and staff. This document will be made available shortly.

The Victorian Government has requested that all children who can learn remotely from home do so. If circumstances prevent this from happening due to parents who are deamed to be essential service workers or students who are unable to work online from home, then these students will be accomodated at school to complete their online learning.

We ask parents who are in this situation to contact Justin Duckett via email at

These are difficult times and we would like to make sure that you are coping well with this new structure. Let us know if you are feeling anxious. The Wellbeing team are only an email away.

We thank you for your ongoing support.
