Dear Parents and Caregivers,

I am writing to let you know that free RATs for each student have now been delivered to the school.

These free RATs will support our students to continue to attend school for face-to-face learning and will minimise disruption to their schooling.  You will be able to test your child at home if they are feeling unwell.  You can also use these RATs if your child is a close contact to enable them to test daily and continue to attend school, as long as they receive a negative result and remain asymptomatic.  Please read the following link from WA Health which explains how to use the RATs.

We will start handing out these RATs as follows:

Parents/caregivers can collect from Reception during school hours 8am to 3pm on

  • Monday- Yr. 5/6 and Yr. 4
  • Tuesday – Yr. 3 and Yr. 2
  • Wednesday- Yr. 1, Pre-Primary and 3yr Kindy
  • Thursday- Kindy

If your child becomes symptomatic, they should stay home and be tested for COVID-19.  You should notify the school and upload the result on our COVID Self-Reporting Form found on the school website if your child tests positive for COVID-19.  Refer to for information on close contact definition, testing and isolation requirements.

Thank you for your continued efforts in keeping our school COVID-19 safe.

Kind regards,

Steve Dowie
