28 JULY, 2021 - UPDATE

School will re-open on Wednesday, 28 July, 2021.  

We will not be offering an alternative home-based learning program unless your child is impacted by SA Health quarantine orders.  OSHC is able to operate as usual, please follow the usual routine.

The Chief Public Health Officer has advised that despite the hard lockdown being lifted, it does not mean that risks associated with COVID-19 have passed.  As a result, we will:

  • minimise the number of poeple coming and going from our site.  Wherever possible, please drop and collect your child at the gate and maintain the appropriate 1.5 metre physical distance from other adults.  If you must come onto school grounds. You must wear a mask and check in.  QR codes are posted at entry points to the school. 
  • postpone all school events, excursions and camps for the next week.  This does mean that our Swimming and Water Safety program for Years 3-5 next week has been cancelled.  We have inquired about rescheduling this for our school but there is no availability at this stage.  We will advise if this changes.  We are unsureof any decision in relation to camp and will advise as soon as we know.
  • require all staff to wear masks when indoors, on public transport or on school buses.  Please note that staff will not have to wear masks while teaching or working directly with students.

Your child might have questions about wearing masks.  It is important we continue to follow SA Health advice and your continued cooperation is greatly appreciated as we help students and staff with this necessary change.

Thank you very much for your support during this recent lockdown.  We appreciate the uncertaintly in relation to many situations and will endeavour to find and commnicate answers as soon as we are informed.

School events have been listed on our calendar but please be aware that they are subject to change / cancellation from any COVID-19 restrictions. Please check the calendar for updates regularly.

Thank you for your co-operation and understanding.
