Kenvale College is fully committed to the health and well-being of our students. The College is open and has moved all face to face classes to be delivered online for Trimester 1 or until further notice, following the Australian Government advice on social distancing in response to COVID-19. Please check back on this page as further updates will be posted here.

Applications and enrollments for June intake has not changed and still remain open.

Please note that the College does NOT have any confirmed case(s) of COVID-19 among staff or students or any person who has visited our premises that we have been notified of. This precautionary measure is implemented to minimise the risk of students and staff.

We want to ensure there is minimal disruptions to our students’ learning experience, so it is important to read the following information:

  1. The college has decided to move to online learning from Thursday March 19, 2020 to support ongoing study
  2. All face-to-face/practical classes have been cancelled for Trimester 1 until further notice, this includes commercial cookery, food and beverage and events. Please note the College will develop a plan to reschedule practical classes once the COVID-19 crisis passes.
  3. Lecturers will be in contact with all students via CANVAS to organise online learning arrangements. Students are asked to check their Kenvale College email on a regular basis.
  4. All College events, including graduation, are cancelled until further notice.
  5. The College remains open. The shift to online learning will not impact our operations.
  6. The College will continue to monitor and address this issue through various online platforms. All students and staff will be kept updated in the upcoming weeks/months. 
  7. Risk of contracting the virus in Australia is low, unless you have had contact with someone who has a confirmed case.
  8. The Chief Medical Officer advises that only returned travellers from high risk countries with symptoms and people who have had contact with confirmed cases should be tested.

Last but not least, the College is concerned for Student Well Being, including social, mental and financial. Our student services and support will operate as usual, so please reach out to College Staff at any time. We will be staying in contact with you during this period of online learning and want to support you anyway we can.
