Vaccination mandate and parent communication

Yesterday several of you received a message that used the school’s parent email class-lists.

This message was not sent out by the school and I apologise for it appearing to be official school communication.

Class secretaries use the parent email lists to send out schoolwide and teacher notices and information. The lists are not intended to be used to share parental notices.

The Board and I are now working to address the concerns and complaints that we have received from parents in response to yesterday’s message.

It is important to reiterate from yesterday’s newsletter that the school is implementing the requirements of the vaccination order, including the legal requirement for all adults working with students from 16 November 2021 to be vaccinated.

The Board and I are confident that the school will continue to operate safely and effectively from 16 November.

If you have concerns regarding any aspect of the school’s operation, I encourage you to meet with me to discuss this. You can arrange a meeting by emailing me at
