UPDATE ON CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) PREPAREDNESS
A message from Leesa Jeffcoat, Director of Catholic Education Rockhampton - So much can happen in a week. This is certainly the case with the ever-evolving nature of COVID19 and its impact on our schools and the wider community. I extend my sincere appreciation to everyone for their professionalism, support, dedication and willingness to work collaboratively and cooperatively to minimise and effectively manage the COVID-19 event as it continues to unfold. Our highest priorities are the health, safety and wellbeing of our staff, students and families, and we are closely working with the relevant authorities to make certain our response and advice is coordinated, timely and appropriate within the changing parameters.
We are in constant communication with Queensland Health, Education Queensland, Queensland Catholic Education Commission, and state and federal Chief Health Officers and we will follow directives in accordance with their advice as all sectors work to slow the spread of the virus. Operationally, our Critical Response Team are enacting precautionary measures and actively reviewing our resources to strategically plan for contingencies across a range of scenarios to be deployed if required.
Staying up to date with information and working together is critical to successfully mitigating the negative impact of this event. Let us continue to hold in our prayers our school communities, the local communities we serve, our country, our leaders and indeed humanity worldwide. We pray that wisdom, integrity, goodwill and compassion will unite our efforts as we strive to overcome the enormous challenges we are facing.
ST JOSEPH'S DAY
Our St. Joseph’s Day Award winners for 2020 have been announced over the school intercom as we are unable to meet together as a school. A year 6 boy and girl are chosen for the award if they are conscientious and take pride in their uniform and school, display good sportsmanship and a caring/considerate attitude towards others, demonstrate a Christian attitude showing respect for others and participate in community events. Congratulations to Zoey and Hunter on being very worthy winners of the St Joseph’s Day Award for 2020.
