Travelling from Victoria: Effective from 6pm, 26 May 2021
Any person who has been in Greater Melbourne any time in the 14 days prior to their intended arrival (but not before Thursday 20 May 2021) is currently not permitted to enter South Australia (Level 6 restriction). Essential travellers and permitted arrivals (returning South Australian residents, persons relocating, and domestic violence arrivals) are permitted entry but will be subject to Level 4 restrictions (self-quarantine for 14 days; test on days 1, 5, and 13; and wear a mask in public ). The School requests that if this applies to any member within your immediate household, then all students also remain at home under self-quarantine for this period.

A person arriving from Tasmania on the Spirit of Tasmania and then driving through Greater Melbourne will not be considered to have been in the restricted zone and therefore not required to self-quarantine or complete COVID-19 testing so long as they travel through the zone via the most direct and practicable route and do not stop in the zone except in an emergency or for respite or other essential purpose, and must wear a mask when in contact with the public and maintain physical distance.
Travellers are permitted to transit through Tullamarine Airport. They must not leave the airport before boarding their flight and must wear a mask for the entirety time they are in the airport and on the flight or when they come in contact with a member of the public.
Greater Melbourne means the following local government areas in Victoria: Banyule, Hume, Moreland, Bayside, Kingston, Mornington Peninsula, Boroondara, Knox, Nillumbik, Brimbank, Manningham, Port Phillip, Cardinia, Maribyrnong, Stonnington, Casey, Maroondah, Whitehorse, Darebin, Melbourne, Frankston, Melton, Wyndham, Glen Eira, Monash, Yarra, Greater Dandenong, Moonee Valley, Yarra Ranges, Hobsons Bay and the City of Whittlesea.
We continue to remain highly vigilant in regard to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and in reducing the potential for infection and spread of the disease, and we continue to ask for the ongoing support of our families in helping to keep our School a safe place by supporting the hygiene and physical distancing measures that we have in place.
We cannot be too careful at this time. Any member of our School community who is unwell, or who exhibits any symptoms of the COVID-19 virus, must remain at home and seek immediate testing.
If a student exhibits any symptoms of COVID-19 whilst at School, no matter how mild, they will be isolated and parents will be contacted to arrange immediate collection.
Across the ELC, Junior and Secondary Campuses, we have revised our current restrictions, and we are pleased to advise that parents may now enter classrooms again as required – specifically during drop-off and pick-up times.
The School has COVID-safe Plans and QR Check-In codes in place across all Campuses, and it is a contact tracing requirement that all adults who enter any of our Campuses must check-in using these QR codes.
This page will be updated as changes are made to the School’s COVID-Safe procedures, and information communicated to families via email.
If you have any queries or require any further information, please contact the School directly on 8278 2233.
