The Education Departments recommendation is that parents/guardians/carers of students should ensure that any student returning from mainland China (not including Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan) who was in mainland China on or after Saturday 1 February 2020 is isolated at home and should not attend school until 14 days after they were last in mainland China.
This recommendation does not apply retrospectively. It applies only to students who were in mainland China on or after 1 February 2020.
The existing advice remains that parents/guardians/carers of students should ensure that any student is isolated at home and should not attend school for 14 days:
This same advice applies to any impacted staff.
Years 7 and 8 – may wear the sports tracksuit pants/sports shorts and runners on days when they have sport or PE. At all other times they are to be in the new logo’ d navy-blue formal pants or shorts with black leather shoes. Students may choose to wear any of the approved tops with logos, or the formal blue cotton shirt, on any day they wish.
Years 9 to 12 – the only change to the 2019 Uniform Policy is that all tops and pants must have a GSC logo. The only exception to this rule are the sky-blue shirts, which don't have a logo.
Proposal - all year levels to wear the new navy-blue formal pants or shorts with black leather shoes, unless they have a PE class that requires physical activity, or sport on the day. Students may choose to wear any of the approved tops on any day they wish. All items, except for the sky-blue shirts, must have the GSC logo.
