BREAKING: Queensland schools and kindergartens close due to COVID19

Queensland Department of Education has announced that Queensland community kindergartens and schools will close from Monday 30th March due to the COVID19 crisis.

Five student free days have been declared for Monday 30 March – Friday 3 April 2020.

Staff of state schools and community kindergartens will begin their Term 1 break on Monday, 6 April. Schools will reopen to students and staff on Monday, 20 April 2020 unless health authorities advise otherwise.

During the period 30 March to 3 April, schools will continue to provide a program of care and supervision for children of essential workers. These families are instructed to liaise directly with their own school on how the school day will be managed for these children.

For students at home, teaching and learning resources are available through the department’s learning@home website. Each school will be communicating with families on how this learning will be managed.

More will be announced on the provisions for Term 2 during the Easter break.
