As we have been informed that we will move into Phase 4 of eased restrictions as of Saturday 27 June with Phase 5 expected to start Saturday 18 July, we have begun to conservatively explore options of returning back to ‘normality’ in Terms 3 and 4. As we look at the possibility of hosting small, medium and large scale events, our first priority will continue to be the safety of our community. Whilst restrictions may ease rapidly, all changes we implement as a College will nevertheless be staged.
The following points were released today in terms of what Phase 4 looks like for WA:
- All existing gathering limits, and 100/300 rule will be gone,
- The 2-square-metre physical distancing rule will continue at venues that hold more than 500 people,
- Seated food requirements will be gone,
- No more patron registers at hospitality businesses,
- Many more events permitted, except for large-scale music festivals,
- Gyms able to operate unstaffed, but regular cleaning must be maintained
We would like to gently remind parents, if your child is sick, they must not go to school. You must keep them at home and away from others. Remember to maintain physical distancing from other parents and teachers when attending school, including when dropping off and picking up your children.
Please remember that all of the updates we have sent you so far are available to read via our News page on our website, accessible by clicking here.
