School support regarding COVID-19

WASCA will continue to provide information for canteens and schools regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19). This is based on advice from the WA Departments of Health and Education and in consultation with WA Council of State School Organisations (WACSSO) to take the necessary precautions for schools and staff.

Please seek advice from the principal and/or employer (e.g. P&C) at all times as the situation at your school evolves.

On 26 March, the Minister for Education and WA Premier announced our schools will remain open until 9 April, however classroom lesson will finish 3 April.

Please review our advice for canteens, including:

  • Update #1 (published 18.03.20) includes advice to operate effectively and implement health and safety measures in the canteen – School Communication re COVID-19 here
  • Update #2 (published 26.03.20) updated advice for plans to close the canteen – School Communication re COVID-19
  • Follow WASCA on Facebook to ensure you see the latest information and stories.

Plus, download a helpful resource from WACSSO for P&C operations here
