We have updated our Education Continuity Plan in response to the WA Premier’s announcement to re-open schools for the start of Term Two.

Throughout Term One, Mazenod has worked to continue the learning of its students through the period of disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, and the decision to transition to online learning was taken in consultation with CEWA.

The landscape around this situation is regularly changing, and the staff at Mazenod have been working hard to adapt to these changes. The state and federal governments are working towards loosening restrictions with regards to school while maintaining the focus on health and safety to prevent an increase in new infections.

Below is a link for the most recent update to the Education Continuity Plan. This edition addresses the return of students to face-to-face learning from Tuesday, 12 May 2020. For reference purposes, please see our Education Continuity Plans for the end of Term One and start of Term Two.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our whole community for the tremendous support that they have given to the College during this difficult time.
