Sydney’s Moriah College remains open and is now providing online all educational services, ELC-Year 11, from today and for Year 12 students, from Monday.

Moriah College

In response to evolving circumstances, and in recognition of the needs of a number of families, the College will be offering limited care and supervision arrangements until the conclusion of Term 1, Friday, 3 April 2020.

This provision will be for families who are providing essential services and others who are in need of support. The College has requested parents who are able to have their children engage in the Moriah B’yachad online learning program at home to do so. The College strongly recommends that care arrangements are not made with elderly family/community members.

These arrangements will remain in place unless it becomes necessary to alter them due to a COVID-19 outbreak or other circumstances that impact on the school environment.

Whilst the children are on campus, they will be supervised in smaller groups. Primary School and Years 7 and 8 students will be supervised as they engage in the Moriah B’yachad online learning program. They will have staggered break times and all food will need to be provided from home as there will not be any canteen services.

Heightened levels of social distancing and hygiene procedure will be practised, and physical contact between children will be minimised. Children who are unwell or displaying any symptoms of concern are asked not to attend school.

The College recognises that there are members of the extended Moriah Family who may need other forms of support, especially those more vulnerable and the aged.

The core of the Jewish community evolves around Chessed – kindness to all.

The Moriah Foundation together with the Moriah College Parents & Friends has already received many calls from the community, offering services, whether delivering essentials or connecting with those who are isolated.

Moriah College has expressed appreciation to the school community for its support of the school’s decision to activate the Moriah B’yachad online education platforms.
