School Fee Support

The College recognises that, as a result of COVID-19, some members of our College community are facing difficult challenges at the moment and, for many, finances are of particular concern.

We are continually assessing the situation and are working with families to assist and support them through this time. Please email the Business Manager or Finance Officer at accounts@scc.tas.edu.au or phone the office to discuss your situation.

Other Measures

Some of the measures that have been implemented for the safety of staff and students include but are not limited to:

  • Systematic cleaning throughout the school day of high-touch areas, handrails, toilets, door handles, etc. in addition to our established cleaning regimes.
  • Hand sanitisation stations at every entrance and in all classrooms.
  • Encouraging “outside” classrooms depending on weather suitability.
  • Ending food sharing for staff and students.
  • Volunteer help has been put on hold for term 2 and will be reviewed in term 3.
  • Assemblies are on hold and items are being distributed via a link to families (please contact the office if you have not received previous links).
  • Access to the College is by appointment only.
