All secondary students must wear a mask when there is a public health requirement in place to do so (masks are currently required in the Great Southern region), unless:

• they have a physical, developmental or mental illness, condition or disability which makes wearing a face covering inappropriate
• they are deaf or hard of hearing and visibility of the mouth is essential for communication
• they are engaged in physical exercise
• they are eating, drinking or taking medicine.

Staff may remove their mask when providing teaching or instructions to students.
