Latest COVID-19 Information

From The Principal, Mr Ian Elder

The State Government has announced that public health and social measures will be eased from 12.01am on Friday 29 April (details at wa.gov.au).

Testing and Isolation Protocols: 

A child who becomes symptomatic should stay at home and be tested for COVID-19.
If your child becomes an asymptomatic close contact, due to a person in your household being COVID-19 positive, they will no longer have to isolate for 7 days. They will be required to:
  • inform the College via email: covid@tkc.wa.edu.au
  • do a daily Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) and receive a negative result each day to attend school
  • wear a mask at school (for students in Year 7 and above) and when travelling on public transport or ride-share.
If your child becomes symptomatic they should stay home and be tested for COVID-19. Refer to healthywa.wa.gov.au for information on close contact definition, testing and isolation requirements. You should notify the College if your child tests positive for COVID-19.
Please continue to refer to healthywa.wa.gov.au for information on close contact definition, testing and isolation requirements.

Reporting Cases

It is important that parents advise the College if their child becomes COVID-19 positive or becomes a close contact.  Please email us at: covid@tkc.wa.edu.au or submit via the online COVID-19 Notification Form.

Current active COVID-19 positive case numbers will be published by year group daily on the SEQTA Notices, which can be accessed via the SEQTA Engage app.

If you have further questions, please email us at: covid@tkc.wa.edu.au

All positive RATs must be reported to WA Health via www.healthywa.wa.gov.au/ratregister and isolation protocols followed as directed by them.
