Update: College reopens on Monday
5 February 2021
Canning College will reopen on Monday, February 8, and teachers will resume the delivery of programs both on campus and online.
As the transition out of the WA State Government’s five-day lockdown restrictions is dependent on the detection of no further cases, students are reminded to check their personal and Canning College emails over the weekend for additional updates.
Students studying with Canning College online should be ready to log in and start lessons on Monday, according to the timetable sent earlier this week. Students living in Perth are required to attend classes as per their timetables.
All staff and students on campus must wear a mask, although teachers can remove masks to better communicate during lesson delivery.
Any student experiencing flu-like symptoms, such as a high temperature, fever, sore throat or coughing, should be tested at a local testing centre. Students who are unwell are required to email firstname.lastname@example.org explaining their condition and planned steps, including when and where they intend to be tested.
It is important that all students and staff continue to practise physical distancing where possible and to maintain good personal hygiene at all times.
These COVID-safe measures will remain in place until Sunday, February 14, subject to any further WA State Government advice. Western Australia’s borders remain closed to international students until further notice but we will continue to offer online pathway programs and look forward to welcoming new students to campus when restrictions are lifted.
More information regarding the WA Government’s response to COVID-19 is available here.
While the lockdown has delayed the start of the academic year, Perth remains a safe place to live, study and work. It is important to remember that the WA State Government’s lockdown measure was taken following the detection of a single COVID case in a hotel quarantine worker. There have been no further cases since the WA State Government’s swift action.
Canning College apologises for any inconvenience caused and reaffirms its commitment to assisting students in achieving their academic goals in 2021.
