Dear Student,

Some good news for all of us in Melbourne this week! 

The Victorian Government has announced some changes to the current restrictions that are effective from 11:59pm on Tuesday, October 27.

  • Melbourne moves from "stay at home" to "stay safe", meaning there will no longer be any restrictions on people leaving their homes.

  • All retail will re-open.
