COVID-19 update - Monday 26 April 2021

Dear Families of CBC Fremantle

I hope you are safe and well in this latest period of lockdown. I am writing, following Premier Mark McGowan’s announcement earlier today, with the happy news that schools will be open tomorrow.

I would like to thank all of our families, students and staff for preparing for different eventualities. At this stage, and until further notice, students and staff will be required to wear masks at school, unless they have a medical exemption or are participating in vigorous activity. Teachers can remove masks when they are delivering lessons.

There will be changes to some activities:

  • School photo day (Wednesday 28 April) is postponed.
  • Families and visitors will not be able to attend assemblies or Mass until further notice.
  • Incursions and excursions, unless otherwise advised, will run as scheduled.
  • Families will be unable to spectate at sporting events.

The health advice remains, in particular:

  • If you, or your family, have visited one of the high risk possible Exposure Sites during the exposure timeframe identified on the Health Department website, you must self-isolate for 14 days and get tested immediately. You must stay in isolation no matter what your test result is. 
  • If you, or your family, have visited one of the  potential contact exposure sites (identified in the second section of the link above) during the exposure timeframe identified on the Health Department website, you need to attend a COVID clinic for testing and isolate at home until you receive a negative result. Continue to monitor for symptoms for 14 days following your visit. If you experience any symptoms at any time – fever, coughing, shortness of breath, sore throat, runny nose, loss of smell or taste – go to a COVID clinic to be retested.
  • Should your son be suffering from any of the symptoms above, do not send him to school and have him tested. If any member of our community presents to school with the above symptoms they will be sent home for testing and will need to stay at home until they receive a negative test result.

Further information about restrictions is available on the WA Government site. The latest health information is available here.

We await further advice from Catholic Education Western Australia and Edmund Rice Education Australia, and will continue to provide families with regular and up-to-date information as the restrictions are modified.

Warmest regards

Domenic Burgio
