COVID-19 UPDATES

AC is committed to the wellbeing and safety of our students and staff through these challenging times.

We have been actively planning for a return to campus as the COVID-19 restrictions ease and we will continue to update you.

Keeping our community safe is of the utmost importance, and each step in our return will be in line with government advice.

What is happening for Semester 2?

Based on the latest Government advice, we are planning for a gradual return to face-to-face teaching for students who can attend campus.

We will continue to provide our best online delivery for students who are not yet able to join us face-to-face,  and offer live stream or recorded options.

When we do return to campuses, face-to-face learning will meet required safe physical distancing measures and hygiene practices, as per government guidelines.  

Subjects with required face-to-face delivery, such as Social Science and Education practicals, will also meet safe physical distancing measures and hygiene practices.
