Executive Director’s Update to Principals #9: COVID Update - 11 February 2022
Acknowledgment of Country & Morning Prayer
COVID Update (VC) for Principals - Zoom Recording
The Zoom recording for the Principal COVID discussion this morning (Friday, 11 February 2022) is now available.
Local Register - Simplified Template
The Quarantine, Isolation, and Testing Order No.5 (the ‘Order’) has been amended to place additional notification obligations on education facility operators as outlined in the COVID Update # 8 (9 February 2022).
Schools have been maintaining a local register of all notifications of a confirmed case for staff or students. You are welcome to continue to use your local register or to use the simplified template shared in the COVID discussion this morning. Note rows 9 and 10 are intended as examples only. Please provide your school ENumber when sharing your local register with CEB.
To ensure DOBCEL meets the reporting requirements for Board and Government, all schools in the Diocese of Ballarat are required to email their local register to Catholic Education Ballarat (CEB) via firstname.lastname@example.org by 10.00 am each Friday until further notice. It would be helpful if you can put your school name in the subject line.
We are happy to receive a copy of your local register (noted above) to avoid duplication of effort. CEB will redact all staff/student names to ensure only de-identified reporting.
If you have any questions about this requirement, please contact Ange Jones at email@example.com.
Thank you in advance.
Next COVID Update
We will continue to monitor the situation and advise principals of any updates. Please liaise with the COVID Support team (see left hand column) or your Education Consultant with any questions or concerns.
Stay safe and continue to look after each other…
Assistant Director: People and Development
