From The Principal #15 – Vaccination Mandate Update

Dear parents and carers

The WA government announced that from 10 June 2022, the mandatory vaccination policy would be updated in line with health advice. This means that staff in schools and residential facilities will no longer need to be vaccinated.

The triple dose vaccination requirements only remain in place for those working in healthcare and health support, workers in residential aged care, and workers in residential disability settings.

As you know students are not required to be vaccinated, however if your child is on a work placement at one of these settings, they will need to continue to comply with the industry/business requirements at that workplace.

The change also means that parents and carers who regularly visit, volunteers, third party providers and contractors are not required to be vaccinated to enter a school or residential facility.

It is also important to remember that the removal of the vaccine mandate does not mean the pandemic is over.

In the school setting we continue to follow the health advice and COVID-19 safe measures remain in place including:

  • following ventilation guidelines;
  • staying home when unwell;
  • high touch surface cleaning and other site hygiene measures;
  • wearing a mask as required as well as at one’s own discretion in certain settings especially where social distancing is not possible; and
  • following the testing and other protocols when identified as a close contact.
  • taking a daily RAT when identified as a close contact, and
  • having good hand hygiene.

I encourage you to visit the HealthyWA website for further information about COVID-19.

With a flu season on its way we are committed to the health and wellbeing of everyone on our school site.

If you have any queries, please contact 9797 4400.

Thank you for your support.
