Welcome to Manifold Heights Primary School

Term 4 update:

The Victorian Government has announced that regional communities will progress to the ‘Third Step of the roadmap’ for reopening from 11:59pm Wednesday 16th September 2020. So Mano can now reopen sooner than we thought – in the first week of Term 4 not the second week as we thought would be the case!
On Monday October 5th all staff will return to onsite duties for a Pupil Free Planning Day (this is a Pupil Free Day so NO onsite supervision for students to be provided).
Tuesday 6th October – all students return to face to face onsite classroom teaching program.

This is the news we have all been waiting for and what an exciting time it will be when the bell rings at 9am Tuesday 6th October and our 434 students are all back onsite.

Upon returning to school for all students on Tuesday 6th October, there will need to be in place a range of measures to address hygiene and social distancing.

* School starts at 9am for all students each day.

* Preps are asked to enter in the morning and exit in the afternoon via the Narmbool St gate (like we did previously). Siblings can enter with their youngest sibling please from ‘their gate’.

* Grade 1s are asked to enter and exit via Strachan Ave gate near the School Crossing.

* Grade 2s are asked to enter and exit via the Manifold St gate near the After School Care building.

* Middles are asked to enter and exit via the Purrumbete Ave gate, near the basketball court.

* Seniors are asked to enter and exit via the Manifold St gate, near the staff carpark (where Purrumbete Ave used to meet Manifold St).

* Preps, Grades 1s and Grade 2s together with their siblings will be dismissed from ‘their gate’ at 3.20pm each day.

* Middles and Seniors will be dismissed from ‘their gate’ at 3.30pm each day.

See the school newsletter 17.09.2020 for full details.

Virtual Tour Video Now Being Shared with the Mano Community
We had hoped to be able to welcome our Preps of 2021 to our school for a tour by now, but with ongoing COVID-19 restrictions preventing that, we have brought the school to them instead! For those of you who already have children at Mano, our buildings and facilities will be familiar.
For our new families, we hope our Prep focused, Virtual Tour video will give them a better sense of Manifold Heights Primary School.
As Lachlan says at the end of the video…we can’t wait to meet you all!
A big thank you to Toby Cooper (parent) for this drone footage. Check out the video via the following link! https://safeyoutube.net/w/mgGcb
