COVID-19 Update - What will Term 4 look like?

Welcome back to the remaining weeks of Term 4! Schools remain safe and our operations are guided by the latest advice from the ACT Chief Medical Officer and the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee.  Any changes to the current notifications will be communicated via SZapp and parent email. 

  1. Adults - We need to continue monitoring the number of adults in the building under social distancing guidelines. This will mean:

a) Parents and other family members may not enter the school grounds at morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up. Adults must socially distance with 1 person per 4sqm unless they are part of a family group. We have been advised to discourage large gatherings to minimise risks. 

b) Afternoon pick up will involve parents and carers remaining in school carparks.  Additional staff will be on duty to assist in notifying students when parents have arrived and escorting students to the gate or carpark, where necessary. 

c) Morning announcements, prayer and birthdays will be announced over the PA system.

d) Visitors may only enter the building for an appointment or necessity.  They will still need to enter via the front office and check in using the CBR App. Please sign-in and sanitise upon entry.

  1. Hygiene - Students, staff and visitors will continue to wash hands regularly, sanitise and wipe down hard surfaces. 
  2. Illness - Students and staff who are displaying signs of illness are not to attend school, even if it is simply light flu or cold-like symptoms. Parents and carers will be asked to collect your child if they appear unwell. Please follow ACT Health guidelines around testing and seek medical advice regarding illness and returning to school. https://www.covid19.act.gov.au/stay-safe-and-healthy/symptoms-and-getting-tested
  3. Extra cleaning of desks, wet areas and high-touch areas to continue daily.
  4. Celebrating birthdays - No birthday cakes or shared food at the moment. You may send a small individually wrapped treat to hand out to classmates eg: lollipop, choc frog, purchased individually wrapped cakes.
  5. Snack Shack – the canteen is currently CLOSED. We hope to reopen when the social distancing restrictions are eased back to 1 per 2sqm.
  6. Excursions may be able to go ahead in the coming weeks.  This includes end-of-year Mass and Year 6 Graduation.  
  7. Uniform - Full summer uniform. The clothing Boutique will reopen on Thursday (new day due to volunteer availability) mornings from 8:30 if you require items.  Please order via Qkr! and pay online as we remain cashless.  Payments can also be made via EFTPOS.
