Learning through COVID-19

7 May 2020

With schools being closed due to COVID-19 student learning outside the traditional school has been introduced. This has meant solutions like virtual/ online learning or home-schooling began in Term 2. Teachers in the Ballarat Diocese are making the necessary changes to ensure that students and families are supported in this time.

St Alipius Parish School in Ballarat East is one such school and the reflections below emulate this:
