Free Rapid Antigen Tests

Free rapid antigen tests will be available for the first 4 weeks of Term 1 2022.

Twice-a-week testing is strongly recommended for both students and staff.

We will supply the test – you do not need to buy your own.

Do the tests at home; you only need to report the result if it is COVID-positive.

If you get a positive result:

  1. Contact the school by phone on 03 5865 1242;

  2. Contact the Department of Health via the COVID-19 Positive Rapid Antigen Test Self-Reporting Form or call centre on 1800 675 398.

  3. Isolate for 7 days and monitor symptoms. Contact 000 or your doctor if you require medical support.

  4. Return to school after your 7 day isolation.

Vaccination Requirements

Parents and carers must have had two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine or have a valid medical exception (with limited exceptions) to enter school buildings.

All staff working in schools need to be fully vaccinated or have a verified medical exception.

COVID-19 vaccinations for students are not required for them to attend school but vaccination for students is highly encouraged. If your child has not yet had their first dose, please try to organise this before term begins. For more information on how to book a vaccination, including important information about vaccination for children aged 5 to 11, visit Vaccination information for children and teenagers.
