Caring, creativity and connectedness continues

The COVID-19 pandemic is the calamity of our times.

At Melbourne Grammar School, the safety, health and welfare of our students, staff and parents remains our highest priority, together with those in the broader community. We are also committed to continuing to provide our students with an age and stage appropriate learning program, regardless of the circumstances in which we find ourselves.

We ask all School community members show compassion and kindness towards those nearby as well as others in our society, while also caring for their own health. We want community members to be creative in how they approach the challenges before them, recognising that, for the moment, some change is inevitable. And we ask people to proactively remain connected to others in the community, and to the School recognising that social distancing is only a physical construct.
