COVID Vaccinations

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Over the past few days we have had some concern raised about the COVID vaccination.

We would like to make it very clear to Parents that as a school we DO NOT have an opinion on whether your child should or should not be vaccinated. This decision is a Parental right and we as a school will respect and support your decision.

Upon directives from both the Department of Education and Department of Health, the school was asked to provide an opportunity for Parents to op into a vaccination process at the school. This was in no way expressing an opinion about the vaccination but an avenue for Parents who wanted their children to be vaccinated to be provided this in a convenient, safe and supported manner. Again this was voluntary and no student or parent was forced into partaking in this process.

Staff members do not discuss or provide information to students about this process or the COVID vaccine.

We as a school respect, support and value your rights as parents to make decisions about your children and their health and are NOT promoting whether your child should or should not be vaccinated in any way.


Kind regards,

Bernard Beatty
