COVID-19 INFORMATION

Information for Parents and Caregivers


During this unprecedented time in world history, the Sheldon College senior management team remains committed to putting the health and wellbeing of our students, staff and community at the forefront of all decision making.

In line with announcement by the Queensland Education Minister, Grace Grace, Sheldon College will be student-free from Monday 30 March 2020.  The College will remain open for the remainder of the term for children of essential workers.  

The student free week will be utilised to further develop our already well progressed academic programs in line with our Business Continuity Management Plan (BCM).  The BCM has been developed in conjunction with our academic teams in preparedness for the possibility of a College closure and will see modified academic programs being delivered virtually to students through our Learning Management System (iLINQ).  This process will enable interaction between staff and students in a virtual classroom, including lesson notes, links to videos, worked examples, PowerPoint presentations and forum discussions.  Students will also be able to engage with a number of purposeful digital learning tools.

Dr Bishop will continue to provide regular updates to parents and caregivers as she has done since the start of this pandemic.   

Specific information relating to plans and operational aspects of schooling during this time will be available to parents and caregivers via iLINQ.

We thank all members of our College community for the support they have shown in these challenging times and urge them to continue supporting each other in the difficult times that are ahead.
