With the return of the majority of students to learning at school, appropriate practices have been employed at the college to provide a safe working environment for students and school staff. See SA Health infographic below.
Like other workplaces, this includes:
Adopting practical social distancing measures and limiting occasions on which a number of people come together in close proximity, including:
- allocating classes with the largest numbers to the bigger rooms where possible
- reminding staff and students to maintain a distance of 1.5m as best can in classrooms and around the college
- limiting the number of visitors on site to essential services
- avoiding unnecessary mass gatherings of students, staff or parents
Personal hygiene and the hygiene standards are critical to reducing the risk of infection. To make school as safe as possible we have increased daily site cleaning in place and adequate supplies of soap, hand sanitiser, tissues and surface wipes (and toilet paper!).
In terms of personal hygiene, all students and staff must be encouraged to:
- wash their hands regularly using soap, particularly after using the toilet and before eating
- avoid spreading infections to others by staying home if they are unwell
- cover a cough or sneeze with a tissue or their arm.
Stay home if you’re sick
It’s important that students and staff who are unwell stay at home and recover to avoid the spread of winter illnesses (not just COVID-19). Now is not the time to soldier on.
If a student becomes unwell with flu-like symptoms while at school, their parents/carers will be contacted immediately, and infection control practices will be enacted.
This term, representatives from the three South Australian Universities were scheduled to speak to you regarding their courses and university pathways that are both conventional and alternative. Due to Covid-19 precautions, we have arranged for a digital method of delivery for this information this year. Each presenter has made a pre-recorded presentation that you can visit at your convenience and they’ve also provided access to a wide range of other recorded materials that you may find are helpful guides when mapping your future learning options.
Due to COVID-19, we will be conducting phone interviews instead of face to face interviews this semester. These will primarily be conducted on Thursday 7 May from 3-7pm.
Feedback suggest that given the disruptions and uncertainties we are all experiencing many parents are seeking such opportunities to speak with teachers about their child’s learning. This is particularly relevant when students have been less successful in Term 1 (eg D or E grade) or have shown sign of not progressing over recent weeks. Parents are encouraged to access Term 1 Student Reports as a context for the interviews (reports are available via Daymap Connect).
