Latest School Community Information
21 July 2021 – BMG letter and DHHS letter:
School Community Communication as at 14 July 2021 – 5.00pm
We have been informed that a member of the teaching staff has tested positive for COVID-19. The teacher was at the School’s Staff Day on Monday 12 July but has not been in contact with students on either Tuesday 13 July or Wednesday 14 July 2021.
As a result of this result all staff who were at the Staff Day on Monday 12 July have been directed by the COVID-19 Public Health Division Department of Health to isolate and be tested. We are awaiting instruction from the Department on appropriate sanitation and cleaning of the school.
Given the need for testing of virtually all staff and the need for additional cleaning, there will be no classes at the Woodlea or Maddingley Campus on Thursday and Friday 15-16 July for all students.
In the event of a longer period of confinement for staff, online learning would commence on Monday 19 July.
This is a fairly fluid situation and we will endeavour to keep parents informed of the situation as it develops as we have further information of any additional public health requirements.
At this stage, I would strongly advise that if any student does start to present with any of the recognised COVID symptoms they are tested as soon as possible as a matter of precaution.
