COVID-19 Update 4 August 2020
04 Aug 2020
Dear Parents and Carers,
St Mary’s Primary School and Catholic Education continue to take advice from health authorities in relation to COVID-19. The Catholic Education Office has a team that is actively monitoring the COVID-19 situation as it develops, paying particular attention to local hotspots and organising support for schools where required. St Mary’s Primary School is practising all safe hygiene practices in line with government advice. We understand that the situation is fairly fluid, and we will communicate directly with you should there be any important changes in relation to our school operations in the coming weeks. We remind all families:
If your child is unwell, they should not attend school.
Please ensure that anyone who presents with COVID-19 symptoms in your family is tested.
Parents should avoid routinely entering the school where possible but can attend scheduled school events and meetings with teachers where required (physical distancing and hygiene measures still apply).
Should you have any questions in relation to our school and COVID-19, please feel free to contact our office.
Equestrian Interschool Virtual Event
31 Jul 2020
For those who are interested in Interschool Equestrian Events, this might be of interest to you. Please note, we only became aware of this information today and entries close today.
As much as Southern Highlands Christian School was looking forward to running our 3rd Annual event this year, the COVID-19 pandemic has meant some changes need to be made.
We know how hard our equestrian community will have been working revelling in those extra hours provided by homeschooling and we want to see the results. So, we are continuing to run an online competition!
Entries close on 31 July.
