The Weekly Wrap – Term 4 Week 2 – 2020

Thank you for taking the time to read through this week’s weekly wrap to keep up to date with school happenings.

Book Week 

We look forward to our annual Character Dress Up Day on Friday. Unfortunately, due to COVID restrictions we are unable to have parents and friends join us in the Hall for the Book Week assembly. We will look to share photos via our FB page on the day.

Sports Day Update

We are pleased to inform you that Sports Day will proceed with adult attendance, albeit with restrictions  / adjustments in place as per the advice from SA Health and the Department. 

Key points to note:

  • Adult attendees will be restricted to 1 per family. This is to maintain a total public gathering of under 1000 (inclusive of students / staff) as per the requirements from SA Health.
  • Online registration will be set up to meet contact tracing requirements. This will outline conditions of entry (eg wellness, social distancing etc). Registration details to be shared soon.
  • Adult attendees will be required to check in at one of two main entrances. If needed, adults will be able to crossover at Recess and / or Lunch key for another adult / family member to attend.
  • Extra signage / bunted off areas will be in place.
  • Hand sanitiser will be available.
  • BYO food / drink / chairs. There will not be a sausage sizzle / cake stall. The canteen will operate for students as normal.
  • Extra spot cleaning will take place in toilets.
  • Schools are not required to have COVID marshals – however leadership will be visible and gently remind adults to socially distance.
  • Please direct any questions to the front office.
  • The Sports Day program to be finalised and shared prior to the day.
