Mark McGowan has recently announced changes ahead for WA schools with classes to cease on Friday 3rd of April.
WA Premier Mark McGowan said West Australian schools will cease formal classes on Friday, April 3.
Mr McGowan has encouraged parents though where possible to keep their children at home.
“From now until next Friday all children who attend public schools will continue to be taught,” Mr McGowan said.
“However, the State Government encourages families to keep their children at home if they can access online or other resources for the education of their children to continue.”
“This will allow time for teachers and education assistants to complete professional development between the 6th and 9th of April at school to prepare for term two,” Mr McGowan said.
“Arrangements will be in place in schools to supervise children who need to attend schools on the last four days prior to Easter.”
