Dear Parents and Caregivers,

You would be aware that today, Tuesday July 20, 2021, it was announced that South Australia will be going into a seven-day lockdown, beginning at 6pm this evening. 

The Leadership Team have met and have discussed the arrangements for the College during this period. 

Wednesday 20th July will be a student-free day, to enable staff to prepare for remote learning. This arrangement is consistent across all three education sectors within South Australia (Independent, Catholic and Government schools). 

From Thursday 21st through to Tuesday 27th July, students will be undertaking remote learning from home. During this period, the children of essential workers and vulnerable children are able to be supervised, on-site, during normal school hours (unless required to self-isolate by SA Health). Minimal staff will be on-site to support this arrangement. If you intend to send your child to school for either of these reasons, please contact the High School or Primary School Office and inform us of your plans for these four days, by 12pm tomorrow (Wednesday). Changes to those arrangements can be catered for with advanced notice.

We ask that all members of our school community please continue to use QR Codes or manual sign in for any places attended outside your homes. You would be aware that there have been a number of exposure sites in our area, and this has proven to be one of the best lines of defence for our school community. Please also continue to maintain the sound hygiene practices we have come to know well. 

Thank you once again for your cooperation and understanding at this time. We appreciate that this is a significant undertaking for you and your family. Your child’s teacher, our support staff and I are here to support you where we can. We continue to pray for the conditions in our state to improve and hope for some encouraging results by the time this lockdown is complete. If you have any questions, please contact us at the school, or for questions related to classes or subjects, please message your child’s classroom or subject teacher via Canvas. 

Peter Thomson (Principal) and the Leadership Team
