Principal’s Letter

 

Dear members of the Collegiate Community,

The Prime Minister announced today (1 February) that due to the escalation of the Novel Coronavirus outbreak all travellers from mainland China will be denied entry to Australia unless they are an Australian citizen effective 2 February.

Students who have visited anywhere in mainland China are not permitted to attend Collegiate until they have been back in Australia for 14 days. As Term 1 commences on 3 February 2020, your child will need to have been in Australia by 20 January to commence school on 3 February.

During this time, you should be on the alert for symptoms related to a fever or respiratory symptoms. These include a cough, shortness of breath, rapid breathing, a sore throat, or a runny nose. Please visit your local GP if these symptoms are present, calling them prior to arriving to advise them of the circumstances.

Please let us know if your child is displaying any symptoms of the virus by contacting us directly on community@collegiate.tas.edu.au

If you have any questions, the following website provides regular updates on the virus  https://www.health.gov.au/health-topics/novel-coronavirus. Please refer to this reliable source of information ahead of others.

We will continue to update our advice as more information becomes available. The health and well-being of our students is always front of mind and we thank you for your assistance with this situation. I look forward to seeing all our students return to school at the appropriate time.

Dr Adam Forsyth
Principal

 

新型肺炎疫情更新

 

亲爱的Collegiate学校社区成员:

澳大利亚总理于今日(二月一日)宣布因新型肺炎疫情爆发持续加重,自二月二日起,所有从中国内地到达的旅客(澳大利亚公民除外)将被拒绝入境。

近期内任何曾到访过中国内地的学生必须在返澳后自行隔离十四天后方可入学。因本年度第一学期返校日为二月三日,若上述学生欲按时返校,须在一月二十日前已返回澳大利亚境内。

在此期间,您应密切观察警惕孩子的任何与发烧或呼吸道的相关症状,包括:咳嗽、气短、呼吸急促、咽喉疼痛或流鼻涕。若发现任何此类症状,请尽快于当地全科诊所就诊,并请于就诊前提前电话知会诊所您的情况。

若您的孩子有任何上述症状,也请您尽快邮件告知我校:community@collegiate.tas.edu.au

若有任何疑问,请访问https://www.health.gov.au/health-topics/novel-coronavirus。此网站提供疫情实时更新。较之其他信息来源,此网站信息更为权威可靠。

随着疫情的发展,我校将持续更新我们的建议。学生的身心健康为我校头等大事。我们感谢您在此事件中对我校工作的协助。我真切期待欢迎我校所有学生安全适时归校。

此致,

敬礼

 

Adam Forsyth博士
校长
