Catholic schools returning to face-to-face learning

Friday 8 May

As part of the easing of restrictions in Tasmania under the COVID-19 response, Catholic Education Tasmania schools and colleges will begin a staged transition back to face-to-face learning for students during Term Two.

In alignment with the announcement from Premier Gutwein, on Monday 25 May 2020, all Kindergarten to Grade 6 students, and Year 11 and 12 students in Tasmanian Catholic schools will return to school for face-to-face learning.

It is expected that all Catholic school students will have returned to face-to-face learning by Tuesday 9 June 2020. Individual Catholic colleges may opt to welcome all of their Year 7-10 students back to face-to-face learning before 9 June. This phased approach has been developed in consultation with Education Minister Rockliff.  Your college will provide advice about the possibility of these arrangements.

Next week all families will receive further advice from their school communities regarding students returning to face-to-face learning.
