Wellington Secondary College

Cancellation of Scheduled Open Night, Wednesday March 18, 2020

 

Following the government’s advice regarding gatherings of over 500 people, Wellington Secondary College has decided that their Open Night, scheduled for Wednesday March 18 will be cancelled.

Normally, this event attracts upwards of 500 people, and in the interests of public safety and supporting the government directive, they believe this decision is a prudent one.

Given the uncertainty of the upcoming weeks and months, they are not considering a re-scheduling of the Open Night at this stage. However, what they have done is modify the dissemination of transition information from our school in the following ways:

  • The Principal’s Open Night Address and PowerPoint will be uploaded onto the Wellington website for public information. www.wellingtonsc.vic.edu.au/.
  • Assistant Principal Mr Brendan Dwyer and Head of Junior School Mrs Carmel Roberts will continue their Primary School Visitation program, unless otherwise advised.
  • Wellington has increased the number of school tours available for those who wish to get first-hand information about the operation of the school. Please ensure that if you wish to attend, and have recently returned from overseas, you are not within the mandated 14-day self-isolation period.

Bookings can be made via the website or through the General Office on 9547 6822.
