LIKE their state school counterparts, Wangaratta’s independent and Catholic schools are looking forward to welcoming students back to campus, in line with the staggered return announced by Premier Daniel Andrews on Tuesday.

Along with the rural city’s state primary and high schools, Cathedral College, Galen Catholic College, Borinya Community Partnership and St Patrick’s, St Bernard’s and Our Lady’s Primary Schools will welcome back prep and year one, two, 11 and 12 students from remote learning on May 26.

Cathedral will also have year 10 students on-site from that date, while – as at Wangaratta High School – Borinya and Galen year 10s who are studying year 11 subjects will attend on the days those subjects are on their timetables.
