However, some restrictions will continue to apply until at least 12:01am Saturday 1 May.

  2. Masks are required to be worn by all school staff and secondary students. Exemptions to this rule are:
    • Staff with medical conditions that prevent them from wearing a mask.
    • Students with medical conditions that prevent them from wearing a mask (please email Ppru Kane – Program Coordinator Student Services at to inform our college)
    • Students or staff who are deaf or hard of hearing
  3. Teaching staff are permitted to remove their mask if teaching at the front of the classroom to enable clear enunciation.
