Small step brings big smiles

Small step brings big smiles

The Artemis Centre took a small step towards normal operations this week when we re-opened our doors to students. 

Melbourne Girls Grammar students from ELC to Year 7 and those studying VCE subjects returned to campus for the first time in two months as part of the Victorian Government’s roadmap towards ‘Covid-normal’. 

Since returning our Grammarians have been able to attend their regular physical education classes and participate in optional co-curricular activities including netball, athletics, gymnastics and swimming.  

All activities are being performed according to the Department of Education Victoria’s priorities and guidelines.

In a significant milestone, the pool’s covers came off for the first time in 95 days, bringing joy to swimmers and our Head of Aquatics, Brad Harris. 

“It was great to take the covers off and get the students back in the water,” said Harris. 

“The girls are loving being back, doing what they love.” 

Opening the doors to students is the first step back to normal operations of the Artemis Centre. 

Though there isn’t a clear date as to when our regular swimming and gymnastics timetable will return, we are hoping that it will be in the not too distant future. 

In the meantime, please continue to check our website for up-to-date information regarding our re-opening.
