COVID-19 Update - Sunday 27 June 2021

Today, the state government announced restrictions in the Perth metropolitan area and Peel region which will remain in place for a minimum of three days as outlined here.

The safety of our community must always be our highest priority. It is essential therefore that we maintain vigilance and adherence to the directions from the Department of Health and Catholic Education Western Australia (CEWA) to ensure that we all remain safe.

Mask Wearing

  • For at least the next three days, all staff, students and visitors will be required to wear a mask whilst indoors when at school. Exemptions for health reasons remain in place.
  • Please ensure students have a good supply of clean masks – disposable masks need to be changed every four hours or sooner if they become wet.
  • Masks must be worn correctly (covering nose and mouth). Please reinforce this with your son.

School Activities

  • Schools remain open and students are expected to attend.
  • Activities will proceed next week in line with guidelines from Catholic Education Western Australia and the WA Department of Health.
  • Students and families will be notified if there are changes to excursions, incursions and other activities they are involved in.

Supporting our Community

We are aware that the uncertainties of this time can cause distress for children and their families. Support is available for students who may be experiencing challenges. I encourage you to contact your son’s Mentor Teacher or Head of House if you have concerns about his wellbeing at school.

Further Information

For the latest health information and any health-related enquiries, please refer to the Western Australian Department of Health website or access the helpline on 1800 020 080.

On behalf of our school community, I would like to thank you for your support and understanding during this time. The school will continue to work closely with CEWA and the Department of Health to ensure the safety of our community. I ask that you keep in your prayers communities around the world who continue to experience extreme hardship and suffering in this time. 

Kind regards
