Wellington College continues to be safe to attend, including for any staff and students who are considered vulnerable to COVID-19. We have good cleaning routines in place, people who are sick are staying at home and we continue to encourage good hygiene practices.
We are supporting contact tracing by having QR code posters at our entrances.
Inter-school and community sport, cultural events, performances and parent meetings can now commence and we look forward to welcoming all of our school community on site for these activities.
The key points at Alert Level 1 are:
Students that are involved in events outside the classroom (eg EOTC overnight trips, tournaments, camps, regattas) that are overnight or longer need to adhere to strict COVID-19 Alert Level guidelines. If they become sick any time prior to (including the day of) leaving for the event, they need to inform the school and teacher in charge. If they become unwell during the event, they need to inform the school, and staff/parent present and follow the guidelines for that alert level.
If the Alert Level is higher than 2, then it is likely that the event is cancelled. If the Alert Level is 2 or lower, then depending on the size and discretion of the school as to whether it will go ahead. Always check with the school if you are uncertain of an event going ahead.
