Information for parents regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19)
While the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, the Department of Education has established plans and a team to support Principals and schools. It is important that as a school community we apply common sense, factual information and a practical approach to COVID–19.
If a WA school has to close due to a confirmed case, it will be on advice from the WA Health Department’s Chief Health Officer. The Chief Health Officer will, if there has been a positive COVID-19 test result in our school, close our school temporarily while assessment and tracing of exposure is conducted. A thorough school clean will then be carried out to make the school safe for the return of students and staff.
In this situation the Principal will receive direct advice and support regarding the closure process and communication materials from the Department of Education’s Coronavirus support team.
Upon the school being notified, all families will be immediately contacted and provided with the relevant information. This contact may be during the school day, or before or after school. It is therefore important that we have up-to-date contact details for your children. Please contact Administration to update your details. Updates from the Principal will be available via Connect.
While it is acknowledged that this may be a stressful time for the community, parents are reminded that schools may open and close, and that the reason for any school closure will be to ensure the safety of all students and staff. At school we are constantly reminding students of the importance of personal hygiene. If your child is unwell, please keep them at home. We provide the same advice to our staff.
For the latest health information and health related enquiries please visit WA Department of Health or access the helpline 1800 020 080.
Teachers at this point in time, are not in a position to provide individual work. The Department of Education has opened a new online website where parents can access activities and resources across learning areas and year groups: https://www.education.wa.edu.au/learning-at-home
Your continual support and understanding is appreciated as we work through this incredibly challenging time.
Visit Administration to collect an Enrolment Application and discuss your child's enrolment (or go to ENROLMENTS/NEW STUDENTS). We will process your child's Enrolment (once approved) as quickly as possible and endeavour to have them start as soon as possible. Enrolment applications must be returned in person and are subject to eligibility/approval. Please provide all required documents with your application to avoid delays. If your child has health and/or medical conditions, you may need to complete Health Forms, available under the ENROLMENTS/NEW STUDENTS tab.
