Sadly health advice received by the DET has meant that school camps cannot re-commence effectively for the last week of Term 3, for Prep – Grade 2 and Year 12s.
There has been a small correction that is being made just now to the School Operations Guide. In the original sent to schools a few hours ago, on p.37 the school ops guide says “Yes” to Regional schools for camps. This contradicts the main camps and outdoor activities section on p.13 which states “no camps at this time in Victoria”. We have clarified with DET and there are to be no camps in term 3.
OV and ACA will continue to work closely with the DET on arrangements for what hopefully should be for the school kids across regional Victoria an uplifting return to camps and outdoor activities in term 4, with Greater Melbourne kids to follow sometime in Term 4.
