Scots All Saints College would like to reassure our school community that the health, safety and wellbeing of our students, staff and families remain our number one priority. Consistent with latest information provided by the NSW and Federal Government Health authorities, the College has issued a number of precautionary measures.

We plan to limit the number of visitors coming to the school and postpone involvement by students and staff in large gatherings and events, including assemblies held on our campuses. Unfortunately, this means that many planned events will be cancelled or postponed until another, more appropriate time. While the COVID-19 virus continues to pose a significant health risk, we are doing everything possible to minimise the impact of any related illness across our College community. Through our vigilance with student education about hygiene, school cleanliness, installation of hand sanitisers around the campuses, temperature checks and adhering to advice from the NSW Government and Health authorities, together we can make a positive difference to protect our community.

Like other schools across NSW and interstate, Scots All Saints College will continue to operate whilst monitoring the current situation and taking directions from the Federal and State Health experts. The evolving nature of this outbreak has required public health advice to evolve rapidly.

Scots All Saints College has adopted a COVID-19 Health & Safety Protocol to manage any potential risk on our campuses.

Scots All Saints College has been recognised by the NSW Government as a COVIDSafe organisation with a proactive and detailed COVID-19 plan in place.
