Department Update concerning covid testing and the GAT

Dear parents, guardians and carers,


We have received more advice from the Department of Education about how we can work together to ensure that we all remain as safe and healthy as possible. They have requested that students get covid tested prior to the GAT. Please read the attached letter from the Department carefully. This is a request not a requirement. Please send Ms. Warne a message via teams or email if you have any questions or concerns. Thankyou again for your amazing support of our students and the year 12 team at Lakeview, we can’t wait to see our year 12s online on Monday and at school for the GAT on Tuesday.


Please note that no student who receives a positive covid test or is required to isolate due to community exposure will be disadvantaged in any way by missing the GAT. We are aware that a number of our students are currently in isolation and we are working alongside them and the VCAA to ensure that they feel calm and confident about the exemption processes in place so that no-one is disadvantaged whilst keeping us all safe.
