You would have heard the news over the last few days of several confirmed COVID-19 cases among students at schools in NSW.
With the World Health Organisation now having declared a pandemic, we want to continue to reassure you that we will continue to be advised by the state and federal health authorities and the NSW Department of Education.
An update of our Health Action Plan
Students and staff who are unwell with any respiratory illness or flu-like symptoms should remain at home until all symptoms have disappeared.
Any student or staff member who has travelled to or passed through (stopped over in) any of the following countries should remain at home for 14 days from the date of their return to Australia:
- Any region in China, including Hong Kong and Macau
- South Korea
Everyone who has themselves, or who has been in contact with someone who has, travelled to Cambodia, Indonesia, Mongolia, Japan, Singapore and Thailand in the past 14 days, is to exercise a high degree of caution. They are to self-monitor for symptoms and not come to school if feeling unwell. If needed, seek medical advice urgently and isolate yourself.
Any student or staff member who has been in close personal contact with someone diagnosed with coronavirus must remain at home for 14 days following that contact.
Any confirmed case of COVID-19 will be excluded from attending school until they are medically cleared to return.
Some frequently asked questions
What is the advice for overseas travel?
We have alerted families to the possible risk of students being quarantined after the upcoming school holiday if they, or people in their home, were to travel overseas. With a growing number of countries reporting COVID-19 outbreaks, the risk posed by international travel continues to grow. Because of this we ask that you adhere to our Health Action Plan, outlined above.
If you do plan to travel overseas, we urge you to check the latest travel advice from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and be mindful that new quarantine or travel restrictions may be implemented while you are away.
Finally, if you are planning to have any international guests in your home, we ask that you carefully follow any quarantine advice from the Department of Health.
What is close contact?
According to NSW Health, a «close contact» is someone who has been face-to-face for at least 15 minutes, or been in the same closed space for at least two hours, as someone who has tested positive for the COVID-19 when that person was infectious.
What should I do if my child is sick?
NSW Health advises that:
- If your child has a sore throat, heavy cold, cough, fever or flu-like symptoms, keep them home from school.
- If, while at school, your child presents with a heavy cold, sore throat, cough, fever or flu-like symptoms, we will contact parents to come and collect their children. We request that parents do so promptly.
- If there is any history of travel to countries with confirmed cases of coronavirus, or contact with a known case, phone your GP for advice.
We thank you all for your continued support and understanding during this time.
Быстро лето пролетело,
Наступил учебный год,
Но и осень нам немало
Дней хороших принесёт!
Закончился 2019 учебный год! Как всегда, год был насыщен множеством интересных событий. Прекрасно прошли в этом году наши традиционные праздники: праздник Первого звонка в начале года,праздник проводов Масленицы в марте, День пап. Хочется отметить конкурс стихов «В мире поэзии»,праздник в честь Дня мам «На чашечку чая…» и замечательный музыкальный новогодний праздник в декабре.
Наши ученики участвовали в междунардных конкурсах «Русский медвежонок» и «Кенгуру», принималм участие в проекте 2019 SBS National Languages Competition.
И, конечно, были уроки: русский язык и литература,развитие речи,музыка и драма, окружающий мир,ручное художественное творчество и танцы. Ребята становились образованнее, расширяли свои горизонты, учились мыслить и анализировать, слушать, понимать, учились становиться добрее, учились дружить. И самое главное: развивали, обогащали, практиковали свой русский язык.
Год завершён. Впереди новый, 2020. До встречи в новом учебном году!
