Important update to face mask guidance for schools

Thursday, February 04, 2021

Following the Government’s announcements regarding new statewide restrictions that came into effect at 11:59pm on Wednesday 3 February, there is new guidance for schools regarding the wearing of masks. People aged 12 and over must wear a fitted face mask when in public indoor spaces unless there is a lawful reason not to.

  • Students aged 12 or older must wear a face mask indoors when at school (including school buses), unless they are attending a primary school, or an exception applies (medical certificate or similar will need to be provided).
  • Children under 12 years of age and students at primary school are not required to wear face masks.
  • School staff are not required to wear face masks while teaching or caring, but those who wish to do so, can. Staff must wear face masks in indoor areas of the school when not teaching or caring.
  • Visitors to school sites must also wear masks when indoors. Please ensure anyone on your school site is aware of the updated face mask requirements.

Further advice regarding these measures will be provided when available.

Thank you for your ongoing support of all of our students and staff.
