The principal of Horsham's St Brigid's College says the school is "well-placed", as secondary institutions across the Wimmera prepare to deliver lessons remotely from term two.
On Tuesday, the state government announced it expected schools to educate as many students from home as possible to ensure the physical distancing will help slow the spread of coronavirus
In a statement, the government said Victorian Certificate of Education students would still receive an Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank to help them apply to study at universities.
However, the General Achievement Test will take place in either October or November instead of June, final exams in December, school-based assessment tasks reduced and universities will be asked to delay the start of the 2021 tertiary education year.
"To ensure more kids can learn from home, the government will loan more than 6,000 laptops and tablets to students who don't have access to digital technologies," the statement read.
"Schools will also distribute other classroom devices as required to ensure all students who do not have access to a laptop or tablet at home will be provided one.
"We will deliver free SIM cards or dongles to thousands of students at government schools. This includes an agreement with Telstra to provide 4000 SIM cards for government primary and secondary school students. The government has also purchased an extra 1000 SIM-enabled dongle devices. Priority for the SIM cards and dongles will be given to senior secondary students, students in bushfire affected areas, and families who cannot afford an internet connection at home."
Horsham's St Brigid's College principal Peter Gutteridge said teachers spent the last week in March, when school holidays started four days early, going through video-conferencing options.
"Staff are very comfortable delivering those lessons online to our kids. We expected what was announced today," he said.
"(For physical education) we could look at developing a home program that the kids could follow through on and develop their own bits of data on what they are doing at home."
Mr Gutteridge said the school would remain open to the small number of students without access to adequate internet, vulnerable children and those of people with essential jobs.
"With the video conferencing, we have been looking at particular modes of delivery. Some of them come with their own security issues, so we are working through that," he said.
"There is a fear of the unknown of how we are going to keep in contact with our students. If video conferencing is that method then we need to make sure what we are delivering is safe and secure.
"We will be sending out some guidelines for parents in terms of setting up an area devoted to study, and students will have modified timetable where they will know when the teachers are online.
"We also need to be able to monitor the wellbeing of parents and students, so we will be in constant contact. I am very hopeful our kids will be OK."
In a statement on the institution's website, Hopetoun P12 College principal Graeme Holmes said all students would learning from home, except those of parents who cannot work from home, and vulnerable children.
"If students attend school, the on-site program will be the same as the learning program delivered to students undertaking remote learning," he said.
Nhill's St Patrick's School principal Kingsley Dalgleish said up to a quarter of the primary students didn't have access to internet.
"We are looking at options. We have a one-to-one program with iPads at school, and whether we can use prepaid SIM cards with those I'm not sure, we will have a look at next week," he said.
"There are some resources being put together and if they can access the internet that stuff is there for them, but predominantly it is hard copies (of schoolwork) we will be providing.
"Staff will be fine, they have laptops provided for them."
Term two starts on Tuesday, April 14, for students.
The Mail-Times has contacted other Wimmera schools for comment on how they will deliver education remotely.
