COVID-19 Information for Parents/Carers Update

COVID-19 Information for Parents/Carers

Updated March 23

Information is rapidly changing in relation to the COVID-19 outbreak, and its impact on the community and schools.

The Premier has urged parents to keep children at home to contain the spread of the virus. The Department supports parents in their choice to keep children at home. Schools will remain open for parents who have limited childcare options.

Our teachers have prepared work for students to complete from home. We understand many families do not have computers, or access to reliable internet. Students will be provided with hard copies of work to take home. In K-6 this will likely be a booklet, in

7-10 it may be worksheets, in 11-12 it could be work assigned from their text books.

School will not operate as normal for those students who do attend. Teaching staff will supervise students completing the set units of work.

The current circumstances are unprecedented. It is important that we stay calm, and follow advice from Health Officials.

Information for parents will be updated on the School Facebook page, and School App.


Yours faithfully

Darren Noonan
