Coronavirus

The Department of Education is working with WA Health to monitor and respond to the unfolding international novel coronavirus to take the necessary precautions for students and staff.

Update – Travellers from China  From Saturday (1 February) foreign travellers who have left or passed through mainlaind China will be denied entry to Australia for two weeks

Australian citizens, permanent residents and members of their immediate families will be exempt from the ban but are asked to self-isolate for 14 days from their date of departure from China.
The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) has advised Australians not to travel to China. For the latest travel information visit smarttraveller.gov.au.

Update – Students who have returned from mainland China (not just Hubei Province)

As of Saturday (1 February 2020), all students arriving out of mainland China (not just Hubei Province) must self-isolate in their home for 14 days after leaving China, other than for seeking medical assistance. They are not able to attend school, school events, day care centres or residential colleges. This also applies to parents/carers, contractors, visitors and volunteers on school sites and at school events.

The 14 day exclusion is a precaution to ensure the safest possible environment for children. After 14 days, if the student has no symptoms they may attend school.

Parents/carers should notify their school that the student will be away for the exclusion period, and confirm the date in which they were last in mainland China.

Students in close contact with a person who has a confirmed case of coronovirus

If a student has been informed by Public Health authorities they are a close contact of a confirmed case of the novel coronavirus, irrespective of whether they have developed symptoms, they cannot attend school, school events, day care centres or residential colleges until their local public health unit informs them that it is safe for them to do so.  This also applies to parents/carers, contractors, visitors and volunteers on school sites and at school events.

Parents/carers should notify the school, and evidence from the public health authority is required for the student to return to school.

The WA Department of Health has more information on the virus including factsheets for parents in English and Mandarin and access to a helpline 1800 300 243.

Many Thanks | Helen Fiebig | Principal

Operation Uplift is No Longer Operating in WA

Please be advised that Operation Uplift is no longer operating in WA, so we will no longer be collecting and recycling bras. Thank you to all of you that have contributed to this worthy cause, we have collected over 500 bras since we started collecting, helping many ladies across the world to have something we take for granted. Watch this space for a new recycling project that we will undertake.
