Wednesday 23 September Update

Dear Parents/Guardians,


Based on the latest health advice as at 18 August, Phase 5 of the WA COVID-19 roadmap has been pushed back to at least 24 October. Phase 5 would see remaining restrictions removed, except WA’s hard border and access to remote Aboriginal communities. It would also see the removal of WA’s 2 square metre rule and the 50 per cent capacity for our major venues. The College will continue to update families as we plan Semester 2 events in accordance to these guidelines.


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.


2021 Tuition Fee Increase

With consideration that 2020 has been a tough year for most, and with families at the forefront of our priorities, the College Board is pleased to announce to families that there will be no tuition fee increase in 2021.


Senior School Awards Morning and Evening

Due to the continuance of Stage 4 restrictions in Western Australia, the Senior School will be splitting its annual Awards Evening into an Awards Morning for Years 7-9 students and an Awards Evening for Years 10-12 students. Both events will take place on Wednesday 21 October in the Lakes Theatre, with the Awards Morning commencing at 9.00am and the Awards Evening commencing at 7.00pm. While the Awards Ceremonies remain a compulsory event for students, the College will need to manage parental attendance so that overall numbers in the Theatre do not exceed guidelines. With this in mind, parents of award winners will be invited to the event once award winners have been finalised in Week 1 of Term 4. Should there be spare capacity in the Theatre following this, there may be a further, limited release of seats.


Further information in regards to the Awards Morning and Awards Evening, including the management of parental and family attendance, will be distributed closer to the event.
