I certainly hope that you and your family had a relaxing and refreshing Easter break. We welcome our Somerset community to a term that will no doubt go down in history.

Please view our message from the Chairman of the College Board, Tony Hickey.

You would have seen the many messages and commentary about schools and their operation. I applaud the Premier for providing the hope of a timeframe for the first five (5) weeks. To recap, the College is continuing to offer our successful online programme, Somerset@Home. We will also have supervision for any students where families make the decision to send them to the campus. That supervision will include access to the online environment from the classroom. Students should attend in their sports or day uniform, not casual clothes. We will monitor attendance online and on campus with a hope to return to normal classes as soon as possible.

Nothing would give us greater joy than to be together again, but we will, as we have done consistently since this journey began, prioritise the governmental health advice and follow those directions. We enjoy autonomy in our decision making and we will take advantage of that as soon as we can.

We look forward to reconnecting with the beautiful faces of the students and reassuring them that all is well and all will be well.
