Congratulations to our students and staff for their amazing effort throughout the very busy term as we continued to navigate through the persistent COVID challenges. Students have reconnected to their peers, teachers, and their learning and we are very pleased with their engagement in both the learning and teaching and co-curricular programs.

In addition, we are very proud of the Dunlop student leaders who ably led the Anzac Day commemorations at the whole school assembly in the first week back.

We have had a very positive start to Term Two, with everyone returning re-energised from the Easter term break. The students and teachers who attended the Central Australia Camp were still buzzing from their incredible experiences and they will cherish these memories forever.

Welcome Back. We have had a wonderful start to the new school year and are hoping that there is more certainty for the students, staff, and families during this third year of living with COVID. There was a real sense of excitement when the Year 7 and 12 students returned on Monday, 31st January and the other year levels on Tuesday, 1st February. The State Government has extended the availability of the Rapid Antigen Tests to students and staff for the remainder of Term 1 and they have doubled the number of air purifiers in schools to keep protecting students and staff.

Congratulations to all members of the Blackburn High School community following a second year of successfully navigating through the COVID lockdowns which have brought significant challenges at a local, national and global level. We achieved a lot as a school community and seized on the opportunities in November and December, to conduct a range of activities including: the Year 6 transition workshops, Year 9 City Experience Camp, Year 10 Sailing Camp, Big Day In, Presentation Awards Day and the Year 12 Graduation Celebration.

On behalf of the Blackburn High School community, congratulations and well done to the Year 12 graduating class of 2021 and all the best during the examination period. We are very proud of your fantastic achievement and thank you for enriching our school community over the past 6 years. I know that Mr Vezey, who sadly passed away earlier this year, would be very proud of you too.

We are continually taken aback by the resilience and commitment of our entire school community during another term of disrupted learning.

In response to the ongoing lockdown, students in Years 7-10 moved to a model of checking in more regularly with their teachers during scheduled lessons, which has proven a successful necessity as remote learning continued all the way to the end of Term 3.
