With updated health advice and changes to restrictions, schools are currently able to undertake a number of school-based activities with more activities restarting from Term 3.
In light of these changes, we have released a Learning at School Guide for Parents and Carers. The guide provides easy to understand information about what to expect when schools return next term. It includes important information about cleaning in schools and what activities and programs can resume in Term 3.
We have a FAQ search tool that allows you to search for what you need. It has the ability to quickly and accurately provide guidance and information. This information is also available as a printable FAQs document (PDF, 1.5MB).
A simple Fact Sheet about Why Our Schools Are Safe is also available.
Talking to Children about COVID-19

Another useful resource (PDF, 1.5MB) is courtesy of @mindheart.kids and author, Manuela Molina – a helpful, positive support about Covid19 to share with children and families.
