Willagee News: Week 3 Update

Pertinent COVID Information Specific to Willagee Site

Dear parents/carers

Now that high case load protocols for school settings are in effect, please note the following points and information.

The definition of close contact with a positive case in a school setting includes:

  • face-to-face contact for 15 minutes or more with an infectious person, where a mask was not worn by the exposed person or the person with COVID-19;
  • interaction for more than two hours in a small indoor space or interaction for more than two hours in a classroom environment with an infectious person, where masks have been removed for this period; or
  • someone who is directed by WA Health that they are a close contact.

As already advised, additional measures have been implemented to minimise the risk of COVID-19 entering or being transmitted on school grounds. Eating and play arrangements for students in cohorts are working well with little impact on lunch and recess fun for children. Similarly, the ventilation strategy for classrooms is working as required.

The following events have been postponed, cancelled or altered:

  • whole school assemblies – certificates and TED awards will still be given in class with students recognised via SeeSaw
  • week 5 family picnic lunch
  • ANZAC Service week 10 – may occur online

Swimming lessons will continue as long as Dept. Education guidelines permit.

Thank you for your ongoing support as we endeavour to work with the guidelines and provide a safe environment for everyone at Caralee.

Kind regards

Jason Shapcott
Principal
Caralee CS

Willagee News: Term 1 Updates

Friday Icy-Pole Reward

We are participating along with Caralee CS to have an icy-pole reward on Friday to welcome our students to the new school year and to congratulate them on a great week. The icy-pole complies with our canteen healthy food guidelines. Please contact the school on 9312 4850 or Fremantle.LDC@education.wa.edu.au if you DO NOT want your child to receive an icy-pole on Friday.

Crossing Guard

We were sad to see our crossing guard Ben finish up in 2021 due to ill health. It was great to see him visit the Caralee Community School fete and attend their graduation where he was awarded the Community Recognition Award for his service as our first crossing guard last year. We are pleased to announce Terry started in the role this week and we welcome him to Caralee LDC for 2022. A number of schools are starting the year without crossing guards so our thanks to the Caralee Community School Board Chair Amanda Buisman for continuing to work with Police over the holidays to ensure the position was filled.
