Letter to Students – Going Online March 2020
It is with the health and wellbeing of our staff and students uppermost in our hearts and minds and on the
basis of the most recent Government announcements, that we have prayerfully made the decision to
transfer all face to face classes to online delivery until further notice, starting this Wednesday (25/03/2020).
The campus remains open for now, with the Library, Student Support Services and many Lecturers still
available on campus.
We have had significantly smaller numbers of students attending classes over the last week or so and several
lecturers who need to work from home for now.
Our priority is to ensure the continuity of learning and teaching for all our students. Thus, starting with the
classes scheduled for Wednesday (25/03/2020), all classes will be delivered online. There may be some small
differences in the ways various CHC Schools approach this situation. Deans and Course Coordinators will let
you know if this is the case. Lecturers will communicate with you about when they will be presenting
lectures online – although these should run at the same time they are currently scheduled on the timetable.
We encourage students who are enrolled in units in external/online mode to join in with these classes
Please stay connected with your Lecturers and Course Coordinators.
We are aware that a number of students have lost their jobs or have had their work hours reduced. Please
let us know if you are experiencing any difficulty. We are looking at ways we might be able to provide some
support for any students who find themselves in need.
Summarizing the main points:
1. All CHC face to face classes will be delivered online until further notice commencing this Wednesday
25/03/2020 March (Last onsite classes will be on Tuesday the 24/03/2020).
2. The CHC campus remains open – Library, Student Support Services and most Lecturers will be available as
3. Online classes, utilising Teams, Big Blue Button etc, will be delivered at the same time your classes would
normally occur on the timetable, unless you are told otherwise by your lecturers.
The staff at CHC are praying for you on a daily basis. Please make your wellbeing and that of those around
you a high priority. You are part of our CHC family, and we care for you.
Grace and peace in Christ,
Dr Jeannie Trudel
