COVID-19 Update 25

With the announcement of further easing of restrictions, schools are being encouraged to return to business as usual in a COVID-safe way. This is great news!

School Activities

The Premier has announced that from 28 February 2022, there are no restrictions on school activities, and schools are encouraged to proceed with their usual activities and events taking into consideration relevant COVID risk mitigation. This exciting news means that we will once again be able to have whole school events and that parents will be able to come on-site for school events, irrespective of vaccination status.

Watch the newsletter for announcements about upcoming community events this term!

Un-Masked (mostly)

  • From Monday 28 February, Secondary students and staff will no longer be required to wear masks at school while they are only with other Secondary students.
  • From Monday 7 March, Primary students and staff will no longer be required to wear masks at school.
  • From the dates above, visitors to the school including parents and carers will no longer be required to wear masks on the school grounds.
  • Masks continue to be mandatory on public transport. This applies to all passengers aged 12 years and older travelling to and from school and during school excursions by public or private transport services. This includes the Kuyper coach.

While masks are no longer mandated on school grounds after 7 March, staff and students may continue to choose to wear a mask. The school may also request that masks be worn as a risk mitigation strategy in certain situations—especially where social distancing is not possible. Students are encouraged to keep a mask in their bag for use if needed.

RAHT Kits

Schools have been issued with a further supply of RAHT kits for students to use at home in Term 1. Every student has received ten RAHT kits this week, and more will be made available in the coming weeks. We encourage families to continue testing twice weekly, on Monday and Wednesday morning, and to administer a RAHT at any other time if symptoms occur. Please refer to COVID-19 Update 24 for information about reporting positive tests.

Parents are reminded that students displaying COVID-19 symptoms cannot attend school, even if a negative RAHT result has been returned. Symptomatic individuals must not attend school until symptoms have resolved. Any student with other medical reasons for recurrent symptoms must provide the school with a letter from their GP.

Hybrid learning remains available for students who are required to isolate due to COVID-19 but are still well enough to work. Refer to our School@Home webpage for details.
