From the Principal – Term 1, Week 5

I would like to thank all of you for your support and cooperation during this very challenging start to the school year. It can be very confusing trying to keep up with the constant changes to the restrictions which are in place to keep us safe and well. Again, I would like to emphasise that one of the most important things you can do to help us is by not sending your children to school if they are sick. If your children are unwell, they should not attend school and if anyone in your household displays symptoms of Covid, they should seek testing immediately, notify us and isolate until a negative result is received. As you know, we unfortunately experienced our first cases of Covid this week, and it was a pretty intense time for everyone involved. There is a fair bit of confusion out there as we are told by CEWA that the Health Department will only act once they get results from PCR tests. However, when a number of our parents fronted up for the PCR testing, they were told that RATs are sufficient. This may end up being the case down the track, but for now, we have to follow the rules of the day. I think it is also fair to say that we are likely to experience further cases in the coming weeks as the state government are forecasting that March will be the month with the highest number of infections. I ask all parents to continue to be patient and work with us. We will do our absolute best to keep the communication flowing. However, we will be under orders from the Health Department and it may feel as though nothing is happening. We have very tight protocols in place and we will have to follow them to the letter. It won’t be a case of trying to keep you in the dark. Rather, it will be the Health Department giving us very specific instructions to follow. This may include isolating a particular class or year level for a week as has happened with 2G, 3B, 4B and 5G.
