Our Covid-19 - safety guideline
Due to COVID-19 it is important we ensure the safety of all including students and teachers.
BEFORE LEAVING HOME
ONLY ATTEND THE CLASS IF YOU ARE IN PERFECTLY GOOD HEALTH. If you have any cold or flu symptoms, fever, cough, sore/scratchy throat,
shortness of breath, loss of smell, loss of taste, runny nose, muscle pain, joint pain, diarrhoea, nausea/vomiting or loss of appetite we
ask you to PLEASE STAY HOME until you are well.
Likewise, if you have been in contact with a known or suspected COVID-19 case, please stay home, and observe the Federal and NSW Government
Self Isolation rules.
Please note that if you have been to Victoria or in direct physical contact with someone from Victoria in the last two weeks, you need to
absent yourself from class for two weeks.
