Headmaster – Mr Andrew Hawkins
Hopefully by now most readers of the newsletter will have read the email that was sent to parents, staff and students on Monday regarding the Covid-19 updates for Queensland. I am overwhelmed at the support of our community and your willingness to accept the decisions the school has made even though these decisions have had many repercussions for parents and caregivers around travel and work arrangements.
Our preference is always to align our decisions with St Hilda’s in terms of travel arrangements however in this instance, we have had to make premature decisions based on the sheer number of boys and staff that have been to Greater Brisbane for GPS activities and excursions.
These decisions are not easy to make however we do remind all families that we are the largest boarding school in Queensland and protecting the staff and students on both campuses is our number one priority when decisions around Covid-19 are made.
For those yet to read the communications to the community I have included an excerpt of the main points.
In light of the most recent Covid-19 updates for Queensland, TSS has made the following decisions for our school:
We pray for all families and their safety over the Easter period and hope that you enjoy the time with family. To our families who are unable to spend Easter together due to Covid-19 restrictions we hope that things settle enough to allow travel as soon as possible. Spare a thought over Easter for one of our resilient Year 11 Thorold boarders who has not seen his parents since starting at TSS in January 2021 from Singapore.
Happy Easter to all.
