Dear Student

COVID-19 continues to dominate news channels and more and more information is being provided to the general public.

We are very understanding of community concern, the latest information from the Department of Health and Education will be always passed on to you via email as soon as it is sent to the school.

At this stage the advice from Australian government is that schools will not close. It is important that as a school we make decisions that are in line with the most recent advice provided by the government.

Due to the recent government advice on gatherings, there we will be no excursions until further notice.

We request that all students abide by the best hand washing strategy, (please see the flyers on the walls around the campus) as good hand washing hygiene is essential to virus prevention.

There is soap and hand sanitiser available and students are encouraged to wash their hands several times a day.

Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.

As always, we ask that students who are unwell do not come to school.

Remain out of the school for a period of 14 days prior to returning to the school, if you have recently travelled to a high-risk country.
