COVID Regulation Update
You would have received communication from the College that there have been changes effective as of Monday 28 February to COVID-19 regulations. A summary of these changes is as follows:
- The Rapid Antigen Home Testing (RAHT) program will move from surveillance testing to symptomatic testing at the discretion of parents. The College will provide RAHT tests to any families who request them to allow them to continue testing twice a week until the end of Week 8. This means you can test to suit your family, when and if students are exhibiting symptoms;
- The College will no longer be segregating the students on the playground or in various activities. Students will be able to mix with students from other Year Groups and participate in activities that involve different Year Groups at lunch and recess;
- Masks will no longer be mandated for students or staff indoors. Any student, parent, staff member or visitor who would like to wear a mask can continue to do so; and
- We can now invite visitors onto our school site for assemblies, masses and other events. We will provide you with more information about this as events approach.
Please note that it is still a mandatory requirement by law that masks are worn at all times on Public Transport.
Thank you for your support as we transition to these updated requirements.
