We are pleased to be able to welcome our families back on-site. Please take note of the DET Vaccination Requirements for Volunteers and Visitors
1. When visiting a school event (i.e House Cross Country, House Athletics, School Assemblies) as a spectator, the parent/caregiver must provide evidence that they are fully vaccinated (double dosed).
2. When a parent/caregiver is volunteering to assist with a school event or activity (in the classroom; attending excursions; running events at House Athletics), they must provide evidence that they are fully vaccinated (triple dose). You will also be required to have a current Working with Childrens Check on file at School.
We thank you for your assistance and understanding with this.
