Heany Park Primary School uses the following apps to keep parents informed and to simplify payments
Following advice from the Victorian Government on Tuesday 7 April, Heany Park Primary School will be moving to remote and flexible learning from Term 2 (beginning with a pupil-free day).
This is a step all Victorian government schools are taking to help slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). This means that all students who can learn at home must learn from home. This is a very clear directive from the Victorian Government based on the advice of the Chief Health Officer.
We will continue to offer limited on-site learning for those students who need to access this, including for students on days when they are not able to be supervised at home and no other arrangements can be made. Further information about this can be sought by email or phone.
The Department’s latest advice on coronavirus can be found at https://www.education.vic.gov.au/coronavirus
It is important that we work together and support each other during this challenging time. The Remote Learning Handbook details what remote and flexible learning will look like at our school.
In the meantime, you might find it useful to look at the Department’s Learning from Home website. It provides resources and guidance for teachers and parents and carers. https://www.education.vic.gov.au/about/department/Pages/learningfromhome.aspx
Reports, Plans & Policies
The purpose of the annual report to the school community is to inform parents and the wider school community of the school’s successes, activities and achievements throughout the year, and to meet legislative and regulatory requirements under the Education and Training Reform Act 2006 and the National Education Agreement 2008.
Schools are required to submit a school annual report to the Department by 31 March each year.
Annual reports are made available to the school community at a public meeting organised by the school principal, and on the VRQA State Register.

Heany Park Primary School Community
In a positive school community, every face has a place, every voice is valued and everyone has something to contribute. Our school has a high level of parent and community involvement.
