Children and education

Schools

Students in all year levels will return to on-site learning at all state schools from Monday, May 25, 2020.

This decision, supported by Queensland’s Chief Health Officer, is in line with the progressive easing of restrictions as part of the Government’s response to COVID-19.

Throughout this week, Kindy, Prep, Year 1, Year 11 and 12 students are attending state schools or community kindergartens along with children of essential workers, vulnerable children and children in designated Indigenous communities.

Students in Years 2 to 10 able to be supervised at home and learn from home are still required to stay home, except for vulnerable students and children of essential workers, and learn via prepared lessons and materials.

Students and parents learning from home can access a wide range of home learning resources and support services through Logan City Council Libraries' Home Learning Hub.

Students from prep to high school can access personalised support and advice from Logan Libraries’ knowledgeable and friendly staff who can help students find the things they need from the library collection.

Children needing support to read or practice speaking English can also access the new free service Reading Help by calling 07 3412 4100 between 9.00 am and 5.00 pm Monday to Friday.

If you’re not a library member, you can join online for full access to the eLibrary at loganlibraries.org/join

Contact your local library for more information between 9.00 am and 5.00 pm Monday to Friday.

Further information is also available by emailing libraries@logan.qld.gov.au

Day care

The Australian Government has put in place the new Early Childhood Education and Care Relief Package.

From Monday, April 6, weekly payments are being made directly to early childhood education and care services in lieu of the Child Care Subsidy and the Additional Child Care Subsidy to help them keep their doors open and employees in their jobs.

Payments will be made until the end of the 2019-20 financial year and families will not be charged fees during this time.
