FAQs

We want to assure you that we are committed to regular and clear communications giving our whole community a voice and to ensure up-to-date messaging.

Please see below some of our Frequently Asked Questions:

Are children required to be vaccinated to attend school?

All children are welcome to attend school regardless of their immunisation status.  The College does not need to know a student’s COVID vaccination status, any disclosures from families are treated with confidentiality.

Can parents and visitors attend events, Assembly and Chapel if they are not vaccinated?

Parents and visitors are welcome at all College events.  Parents and visitors do not need to be vaccinated.

However, if a parent or volunteer undertakes work at a college event, they are required to be fully vaccinated.

Can volunteers or guest speakers still visit classrooms or school events?

The College actively partners with parents in their child’s learning journey and encourages parent involvement in classrooms. Information regarding the volunteer process and application at CCC will be shared early in 2022 through the Weekly Connect.

If you have any questions regarding volunteers at CCC please contact our Administration team.

Where can I find information about COVID safe measures at CCC?

The College COVID Safe Plan is published under TASS links for our CCC community to refer to. This document is fluid, as updates are published notifications will be sent via the Weekly Connect and email.

CCC follows the direction of the Public Health unit and advice provided by Queensland Health.

Check in Qld QR Codes are installed in SBH and in Admin, please sign-in at one of these areas upon arrival to the College, unless you have been notified otherwise.

What do I do if my child is unwell and is displaying COVID symptoms?

If your child is unwell, please keep them at home and notify Admin via phone or through the app. If you suspect a child is unwell with COVID please arrange for them to have a test before they return to school.

At times a child may begin to display symptoms at school. The class teacher will notify our First Aid staff and they will contact parents to pick their child up from school.

What happens when there has been a COVID case at the school?

Our Workplace Health and Safety Officer will report the case to the Public Health unit.  The Public Health Unit will provide guidance on cleaning and the management of close contacts.

Our Administration team will communicate with staff, students and parents as required.

What happens if the Public Health unit says the school needs to shut?

CCC follows the advice of Queensland Health, Independent Schools Queensland, and Associated Christian Schools. If the school was required to close and it was recommended that the College transition to online learning, we would do so. Our Teaching & Learning team is well equipped and experienced should this scenario arise.
