Year 10 Immunisations

WA Health recommends that all Year 10 students in Western Australia receive the meningococcal ACWY (MenACWY) vaccine. This vaccine protects against meningococcal disease, specifically 4 serogroups of meningococcal bacteria: A, C, W and Y.

 

The Year 10 school-based immunisation program was introduced in 2018 to defend against a moderate recent increase in the number of meningococcal infection cases caused by these strains in Western Australia.

 

It is anticipated that immunising Year 10 students will reduce transmission of the bacteria to others and help prevent infections within the larger community.

 

At St Norbert College the Year 10 students will receive their immunisation envelopes on Wednesday 29 April and will take them home for parents to sign and return. Please ensure this occurs by Friday 8 May.

Secondary Assistant Scheme

The State Government, through the Department of Education, provides financial support to eligible parents through the Secondary Assistance Scheme (SAS). The aim of the scheme is to assist low income families with secondary schooling costs.

 

Eligible parents/guardians with students enrolled in Years 7 to 12 studying a full-time secondary course at a Western Australian non-government school will be able to apply for the Secondary Assistance Scheme (SAS) in 2020.

 

The Secondary Assistance Scheme consists of two allowances:

  • $235 Education Program Allowance (payment made to the school); and
  • $115 Clothing Allowance (payment made to the parent/guardian).

Parents/guardians in receipt of the ABSTUDY School Fees allowance from the Department of Human Services (Centrelink) are not eligible for the Secondary Assistance Scheme, but they may apply for the ABSTUDY Supplement Allowance.  The payment amount is $79.00 Education Program Allowance (payment made to the school).
