Back to School


Thank you for your ongoing support as we work together to respond to the evolving COVID-19 situation.

As announced by the Premier on Sunday 30 January 2022, the Queensland Government has released the COVID-safe back to school plan.

Due to these changes the following arrangements have been made for Periods 1 and 2 next Monday 7 February:

  • All students will attend Home Class when they first arrive at school
  • Following the health advice detailed below, parents need to say goodbye outside of the school gates and are asked not to come on site
  • Year 7 students need to go to the undercover area directly beside the uniform shop to find out where their home room is. Class lists will be posted around the area
  • New students who are not in Year 7 need to go to the Sports Hall if they do not know where their home room is.
  • All existing students (not Year 7s or new students) can access their timetable that shows where their home room is. The attachment to this email shows how your student can find their timetable.
  • If students cannot find their home room, please send them to the Sports Hall


In addition to these changes, From Monday 7 February, key changes to school operations include:

  • The suspension of school camps, excursions, assemblies, and large gatherings (please note that school sport will continue as usual)
  • limiting visitors on site, with exceptions for parents and carers of students experiencing vulnerability, students attending early childhood development programs, kindergarten, Prep or Year 1
  • mask wearing for all high school students and all staff
  • rapid antigen tests (RATs) available in school for students and staff who develop symptoms while on site
  • priority access to RATs for students and staff at Queensland Health testing clinics
  • a range of ventilation measures including air purifiers as required

You can access the Back to School plan, and further information and FAQs on the Department of Education COVID-19 website.

Essential to the success of these measures is that if your child is unwell or displaying any COVID-19 symptoms, they must not attend school. I cannot emphasise this message strongly enough – it is critical to keeping our school community safe.

Rapid antigen tests (RATs)

Our school has a supply of RATs which will be provided to any staff or students who, while attending school, develop COVID-19 symptoms. Please note if your child has COVID-19 symptoms while at home they must not attend school.

Your child, if they have COVID-19 symptoms, can visit your local Queensland health testing clinic and will be given priority access to a free RAT.

Limiting access for visitors

At our school, limitations on parent and visitor access are now in place.

Excursions and camps

Excursions and camps scheduled between now and 4 March are cancelled.

This week

For the rest of this week, our school remains open for children of essential workers and vulnerable children, in the same way we were last week. If you need to send your child to school you must ensure your child is well and not displaying any signs of illness.

School staff will supervise any students who attend school.

I encourage you to stay informed of the latest developments relating to COVID-19 by regularly visiting the Queensland Government website.

Thank you for your understanding as we continue to work together during this difficult and unprecedented time.​
