COVID-19 Management

St Patrick's Primary School is working closely with Catholic Education Melbourne to ensure that the school is doing everything it can during these unprecedented times to provide a safe and secure environment and continue to deliver educational outcomes for our students.

All students in Regional Victoria have returned to school for Term 4.

In managing the COVID-19 situation the school has increased the cleaning schedule of the school and is implementing the standard social distancing protocols wherever possible. 

Face to face school assemblies and year level liturgies/masses have been postponed indefinitely and all PSG meetings for Term 4 will still be via telephone or video conferencing. Independent music lessons for drums, guitar and piano will resume onsite with the music teachers.

Families who are experiencing financial hardship due to the COVID-19 virus are encouraged to contact the school via email on

I wish all St Patrick’s students & families the very best as they continue to adapt to this unusual holiday time.

Best wishes

Michael Bourne

School Principal
