Return to school: First day arrangements and expectations
Updated 5 February 2021
See below for the College’s position and guidelines for return to school on Monday 8 February :
The five-day lockdown for Perth, Peel and the South West ends tonight, 6pm Friday 5 February, however some COVID-safe measures will continue until 12:01am, 14 February, details at WA.gov.au
For the safety of our students and staff masks will be worn at our school. Students will need to wear masks in public for the next week, including getting to and from school. but we will have masks if students arrive without one. The College has been supplied with some masks; however, we request that your child attends the college with their own. Our staff will support students to understand the importance of wearing a mask as together we work through this transition.
In the event that a student cannot wear a mask for medical conditions or disability, please email the school at firstname.lastname@example.org
It is also essential that you contact the school if your child’s medical status has changed.
Students will be reminded to practice good hand hygiene and social distancing. Please also bring a water bottle to refill from water fountains, rather than drinking from directly.
There may be some impact on assemblies and school activities next week, but we will work through those. The main thing is that our students are back and ready for learning.
The safety and wellbeing of our students and staff is our top priority and we will continue to follow the latest WA Health advice at ww2.healthywa.gov.au .
Parent/Carers are reminded that if you need to come onto the College grounds you are required to report to the front office and be wearing a mask. Thank you to all students and parents for your understanding and support during the lockdown. If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact the school on 9408 8000.
