COVID-19 RAT Testing for Students on Year 5 Camp

 

In line with the Victorian Government COVID Safe measures it is recommended that students continue Rapid Antigen screening during camps or overnight excursions. It is recommended that all students complete a RAT test on the morning of camp or overnight excursion and parents are asked NOT to send their child to school if a positive result is shown (this includes a faint line on the test strip or even if they have no symptoms).

In line with these guidelines staff will be required to conduct a rapid antigen test on your child in the event that the student displays symptoms while away from home or where it is recommended by the relevant Local Public Health Unit or advised by the Department of Health.

Staff will complete the relevant training prior to conducting the RAT test on students. In order for these tests to be carried out when required, permission must be obtained from all parents/guardians prior to the camp. When consent is not obtained, parents will be required to collect symptomatic students.

Can you please complete the permission form which will allow staff to conduct a RAT test on your child while away at camp, if they develop symptoms. A Phone call will also be made to parents prior to completing the RAT test.

Thank you
Michelle Potter
School Nurse.

Reading At Home 

The evidence for children who participate in reading at home is astounding; the more reading the children do, the quicker they will develop as readers. We ask you to be an active part of your child’s reading with good home reading habits. The most successful readers have support both at home and at school.

We ask families to establish good reading habits and routines, therefore we ask you to:

  • set aside a dedicated reading time and quiet space in order to promote the importance of reading
  • read a wide variety of texts, e.g. picture storybooks, newspapers, comics and magazines
  • promote reading for enjoyment as well as for learning
  • Record your child’s reading time in their school diaries

To ensure these good reading routines are maintained, diaries will be taken home daily and returned to school, signed by an adult.

Diaries will be: 

  • Checked by the classroom teacher either on a Friday or Monday to track work habits and learning at home
  • Used to organise their learning, such as casual clothes days, student free days, etc
  • An avenue for further communication between guardian and teacher
