COVID-19 Information

COVID-19 information for the CBC Fremantle community.

CBC Fremantle follows advice from the Western Australian Government, Department of Health Western Australia (DOHWA), Department of Education Western Australia, Catholic Education Western Australia (CEWA) and Edmund Rice Education Australia (EREA).

We ask that you work with your sons to understand their role and responsibility in keeping our College community safe.

We are committed to the health and wellbeing of our College community and have outlined our current protocols below:

  • Masks must be worn as mandated unless there is a valid medical exemption.
  • Parents/guardians are asked not to come on site.
  • Uniform shop is open to parents, moving directly to and from, and adhering to social distancing, mask wearing and hand-sanitising.
  • Staff, students and visitors have a responsibility to protect themselves and others.

Self-reporting of results.

It is important that families inform the College if their son tests positive for COVID-19 so that we can undertake contact tracing and educational continuity planning. Please also continue to notify CBC Fremantle if your child returns a negative PCR/ RAT result, after:

  • being identified as a close contact (Day 1 test to return to school as an asymptomatic close contact), and/or
  • being identified as a household close contact (Day 7 test to conclude quarantine).

Families can now inform the school of their son’s positive or negative COVID result via this link.

Accurate and up-to-date information can be found at the wa.gov.au COVID-19 website.

Continuity of Learning

The Continuity of Learning plan has been developed to assist students with their learning whilst they are unable to access face-to-face learning.  As required the College will ensure that our teaching and learning continues in Face-to-Face, Hybrid or Remotely in accordance with the required COVID protocols. 

Our main platforms for Hybrid and Remote Learning are:

SEQTA: Use SEQTA to find instructions and content for each lesson.

Microsoft Teams: Every student is part of a class Team.  Teams are used for video lessons and a communication tool to the teacher and classmates.

Other Technologies: Additional technologies approved by CBC are used by teachers.  They can include Canva, Kahoot, Forms, Mathletics, Maths Space, Lexia, Reading Plus, Education Perfect, OneNote and other Office 365 products
