STUDENTS are finally back in Victorian classrooms.

Victorian students have been learning from home during the COVID-19 pandemic, but were allowed back on campus last week.

Principal of St Jude’s Primary School in Langwarrin, Marita O’Sullivan, said that there was a “buzz in the air” when students returned.

“Use your kind heart underpins everything that we do at St. Jude’s. We believe the most important first step is to ensure our students feel safe and respected and have every opportunity to rebuild positive connections and remember that school is a great place to be and a stimulating place to learn,” she said.

Students at the school were greeted at the gates by inflatable tube men. “We wanted to create a typical St Jude’s warm, friendly welcome so the first day jitters were replaced with excitement, the inflatable dancers certainly helped with this”, Ms O’Sullivan said.
