Non-essential activities: cancellations and postponements

The College Leadership Team has made the difficult decision to suspend and postpone non-essential activities and events from Monday 16 March until further notice.

This will mean the following events will be suspended or postponed.

  • Principal’s Tours
  • Mission Day – 22 May
  • Open Day – 27 May
  • Year 5 Grandparents’ Day – 9 June
  • Grandstand opening and Old Boys Heritage Round at Villanova Park – 13 June
  • Staff/Senior Banquet – 19 June

Where possible events will be rescheduled to a time later in the year. However, this will not be possible for all postponed events as there are simply not enough dates available.

Key Advice

Illness:
If your child develops flu-like symptoms (sore throat, runny or blocked nose, sneezing, fever, chills, heachache), please:

  • avoid close contact with others such as touching, kissing or hugging, or any mass gatherings, especially those involving other children;
  • see a doctor or contact 13 HEALTH (13 43 25 84); and
  • seek medical advice if your child has other underlying medical conditions.

Hygiene:
It is also important to continue to encourage your children to:

  • wash their hands regularly with soap and water, particularly before and after eating, and after going to the toilet;
  • use alcohol-based hand sanitiser if soap is unavailable;
  • cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or the inside of their elbow; and
  • dispose of tissues in the bin immediately.
