On Friday, 20 March the Australian Government announced further measures relating to gatherings of fewer than 100 people in an enclosed space. The Government is now recommending four square metres per person. This does not apply to schools.
We have cancelled all excursions and workplace learning. The school assembly run by the seniors is also cancelled. Therapy Focus has advised it will not be sending therapists to schools and will contact families. We currently have enough hand sanitizer and soap products. Students who are currently absent will NOT receive any work to do at home, yet. We are waiting for the DOE WA to advise. For our students simply sending worksheets, home is not enough. We will be looking at using Connect and other online options.
For the latest health information and health-related enquiries, refer to the WA Department of Health2 or access the helpline 1800 020 080.
Take care – practice good hygiene and look after those in need.
