Friday 20 November

Dear Parents/Guardians,

As of Saturday, Western Australia’s new controlled interstate border has come into effect. Under this system, travel from ‘very low risk’ states and territories will be permitted, with conditions on arrival including declarations, health screening and possible COVID-19 testing. These jurisdictions currently include Tasmania, Queensland, Australian Capital Territory and Northern Territory because they have had no community cases for more than 28 days.

Travel from ‘low risk’ states and territories also permitted, with similar conditions on arrival, in addition to 14 days of self-quarantine and a mandatory Day 11 COVID-19 test. These jurisdictions currently include New South Wales and Victoria because they have less than five community cases per day on a 14-day rolling average. Due to the evolving situation in South Australia, it has also been added to this list of jurisdictions.

2020 Primary School Christmas Concert

Western Australia is in a positive position in relation to managing the COVID-19 pandemic, and schools can hold and plan COVID-safe events in accordance with Phase 4 restrictions. What this means for Mandurah Baptist College is that our Christmas Concert will need to occur in two parts as follows: 

Christmas Concert Part A – Kindergarten to Year 2

  • Thursday December 3
  • 9:00am – 10:30am
  • The Lakes Theatre

Christmas Concert Part B – Year 3 to Year 5

  • Thursday December 3
  • 6:00pm – 7:30pm
  • The Lakes Theatre

Please note that due to the current COVID-19 Safe Events requirements, the Lakes Theatre is restricted to 60% capacity. What this means for families who wish to attend the Christmas concert, is that there will be a restriction of three people per family per event. This number includes children. Family groups will also need to be separated by one seat.

No siblings who usually attend class on a Thursday will be able to attend the K-2 Christmas Concert.

To manage these events really well, families will need to register who will be attending each event. Information regarding the registration process will be communicated shortly.

As a gentle reminder, if at any stage someone in your household has travelled interstate and is returning, we request students to remain at home if self-isolation is required for an immediate family member and it is being done at the home residence.
