In line with government health advice, from 12:01am this Saturday – 8 May – restrictions will be eased significantly. Masks will not be required to be worn by staff or students at the College. They will however still be required to be worn if your child is catching public transport (this transitional restriction will remain in place until 12.01am Saturday 15 May).
In line with government health advice our students and staff will be required to wear masks for another week, until May 8th. This includes in class and outside during break time. Thank you to all of our staff and students for their patience and resilience in following these restrictions.
The Perth and Peel 3-day lockdown will end as planned at midnight tonight.
Under the post-lockdown transition measures, Perth and Peel schools will be open from tomorrow, with the mandatory mask rule applying to all school staff and secondary students for at least the remainer of this week.
The expectation is that all students are required to bring their own mask. The College does have a limited quantity of masks for those students who have been unable to secure their own.
Parents are reminded, that if you need to come to the College you are required to report to Administration, wearing a mask, where you will be welcomed and assisted by our staff.
Additional funding for enhanced COVID-19 cleaning will be continued in Term 2, 2021. CVC will maintain our current enhanced Term 1 cleaning regimes.
Controlled interstate border arrangements WA is currently in a safe and sensible controlled interstate border arrangement with other States and Territories. Since 15 March, interstate travel is permitted into and around WA, depending on where travellers have come from and who they’ve had contact with in the 14 days prior to travel. All States and Territories are currently considered ‘very low risk’ and do not have to self-quarantine unless instructed to.
Particular businesses and venues are required to maintain contact registers for the WA Department of Health COVID-19 contact tracing. School premises are not required to maintain a contact register, however, they may choose to do so.
If a school is hiring an external venue for events such as a community hall or function centre that falls within the scope of businesses/venues required to maintain a contact register, the school must comply with the COVIDSafe Plan of the business/venue.
However, contact details are only required for people aged 16 years or over, therefore students under 16 years of age are not required to give their details but are encouraged to give their contact details.
Controlled interstate border arrangements WA is currently in a controlled interstate border arrangement with other States and Territories. As at 23 February, travellers from New South Wales, ACT, Northern Territory, Queensland, South Australia and Tasmania are currently considered ‘very low risk’ and do not have to self-quarantine unless instructed to do so.
As of 12.01am Monday, 15 March 2021, Victoria will transition from the ‘low risk’ to the ‘very low risk’ category, pending no further outbreaks. This means travellers from Victoria will no longer be required to self-quarantine for 14 days upon arrival into WA.
Close contacts of a person in self-quarantine
As per current Health advice, close contacts of a person in self-quarantine (due to testing for COVID-19 or travel) are still able to go to work or school. However, if the person in quarantine becomes symptomatic and requires testing during the 14 days of self-quarantine, their close contacts may need to self-quarantine once the results of the person’s COVID-19 test is known. If the person’s test result is positive for COVID-19, the close contact will be contacted by the Public Health Unit if they need to self-quarantine.
Further to Premier Mark McGowan’s press conference this afternoon, based on the latest health advice and pending no new local cases, from 12:01am Sunday 14th February, the transitional restrictions will come to an end and we will revert back to where we were on the 30th of January. This means the wearing of masks will no longer be compulsory as of Sunday 14 February. I know we will all be happy walking in to school Monday morning without those masks!
