COVID Update

As mentioned previously we have received our next installment of the rapid antigen tests. Most of them are the oral kits and have been packed and are ready for distribution.


Thank you to the parents who have already organised collection for their child/ren's rapid antigen tests. If you would like one of these packs, please contact the school. We still have a number of testing kits to be collected by some families.


Please remember, these tests are to be used only if your child is displaying any symptoms associated with COVID. 


Remember, there are still a number of positive cases in the Walcha community, including some members of our learning community. So we still must be vigilant to ensure that we continue to minimise the spread of COVID. Any student or staff member who is unwell and/or displays symptoms of COVID-19 must be asked to go home and stay there until they can complete a RAT or PCR test. If a student or staff member displays even mild COVID-19 symptoms, they must take a RAT or get a PCR test and isolate until they receive a negative test result. Students must not come to school until they are symptom free, even if they get a negative RAT result. If unfortunately, your child has contacted the virus, please contact the school immediately.
