Stuartholme School continues to work with Queensland Health on necessary infection control measures. Metro North Public Health Unit has conducted a risk assessment and implemented strategies to reduce the risk of transmission, including a vaccination program for those determined to be at risk which commenced on Friday 16 May and is still underway.
Classes have been operational from Monday 19 May for the girls who have confirmed measles immunity. The students and teachers who were classified as ‘susceptible’ have been isolated and are using the flexible and creative capabilities of a Tablet PC to continue working on curriculum.
The School is working with Queensland Studies Authority to ensure that no student is disadvantaged by the impact of this Health Alert. The School’s Curriculum Office will also conduct an overview of assignment submissions to ensure fairness for all students.
I would like to reiterate that the safety, health and well-being of each girl has been and always will be our priority.
We thank each girl and family, the staff and the broader community for their continued support and understanding as we implement the recommendations from Queensland Health.
