This year, due to the pandemic restrictions, saw many of our field services, camps and mini schools suspended.
we move to a revised, interim way of ensuring all of our students have
the greatest opportunity to learn, there is a constant sense of change
and uncertainty. As a community we will work together to ensure that
what we can do for students, will be done.
In 2020, these events will not be held in regional venues but will run at the school site. View our School calendar of events (PDF, 176KB) for details.
Update on activities
All 'residential/camp' style activities remain suspended, i.e. outreaches, mini-schools, etc.
replace these, a number of 'special inreaches' are scheduled for Term 3
and 4. These events are over multiple days and are limited to specific
groups of students, i.e. these events are not open to all. This
arrangement is in place so that we are able to appropriately manage the
numbers of students as per pandemic requirements and to ensure those
students in greatest need get access to appropriate services.

Protocols on Inreaches
The underpinning values when planning the school events for the remainder of this school year are:
- To preserve the safety of students, their families and our staff.
- To ensure students are able to access learning opportunities in a variety of forms.
adhere to current legislative/regulatory requirements associated with
the COVID pandemic and to follow best medical/health advice.
Please note the following protocols for school events:
- Attendance of students is by prior registration. Registration forms are
attached (PDF, 456KB) or may be downloaded from our website. There will be
no registrations on the day. If you
have not registered please do not turn up; you may be offended when our
staff refuse access to the event. The access to the school will open at
8:15am each day.
- Students who exhibit flu like or 'cold' symptoms will be returned to parent care.
There will be no parent access to school
grounds. Registration checking will occur at the front gate of the
school where parents will pass students into the care of the staff. Mail
being delivered to the school may be left at the front gate. Outgoing
mail will be using Australia Post deliveries. The office will be closed
so there will be no transactions available on inreach days. Support
staff will be assisting in event management. Parents may collect
students at the end of the school day from the front gate area.
- No other gates or ground access points will be opened on these days; these access points will be locked.
vehicles (school, staff or parents) will be on grounds during these
events. Staff parking is also to be off street at these times, e.g. at
western boundary of the school. This is to ensure that families have
access to short term areas to collect students as well as displaying
some consideration for the school's neighbours.
- Students arriving at the school will be escorted from the drop off point to their classrooms by school staff.
participating students are to provide their own morning tea and lunch, a
water bottle and hat. Note, no 'lunch deliveries' are possible – come
with lunch items in the morning.
- The school will have hand sanitiser, tissues and hand washing consumables in place and promoted regularly by staff.
it is not mandatory, our teaching staff will be doing their best to
arrange class seating to apply social distancing and conducting learning
activities that do not promote close physical engagement.
