"Hi everyone. I'm Mark Kennedy, JMC Melbourne Campus Manager and I just wanted to give you an update about our current approach to the Covid-19 situation in Victoria as I'm sure you've all got some questions and some concerns. I know the news of current restrictions might be tough but we’re committed to ongoing learning through our online learning platforms. We hope to move as much of our learning back to campus for September or sooner if possible. Although Covid-19 has been incredibly challenging for our broader community, some of our students are flourishing in the online world. I know our Heads of Department have been blown away by the quality of the work they’ve seen. We also understand that recent restrictions are difficult and can I remind you about our counseling service and our 24/7 service, Talk Campus. While the campus does remain open we've restricted the number of practical activities and minimize the number of students in our Audio, Film and Television and Music Studios. Finally I'd like to say how incredibly grateful I am for the care and support staff and students have shown each other and the support of a senior management team including Dr George Markakis and our founder John Martin Cass. Stay Safe, Keep learning and we look forward to seeing you back on campus really soon. If you've got any questions, please reach out to your Head of Department or the campus directly. Thank you."
