COVID-19 Information Hub

This information hub provides the Helena College community with the latest information about the College’s management and response to COVID-19 (Coronavirus).

COVID-19 Requirements

The College continues to abide by coronavirus guidelines relevant to WA schools, by observing physical distancing, practising good hygiene and cleaning regimes.

If you have any questions please contact the main office on 9298 9100, or email the College’s COVID-19 email .

School Closure

If there was to be a confirmed COVID-19 case at the College, the decision to close the school is based on expert advice from the WA Health Department’s Chief Health Officer.

If there is a positive COVID-19 test result in any school, WA’s Chief Health Officer will close the school temporarily while assessment and tracing of exposure are conducted. A thorough school clean will then be carried out to make the school safe for the return of students and staff.

In this situation, all families will be immediately contacted by the College and provided with the relevant information.

Reminder: Students or staff who are unwell should stay at home until they are free from symptoms.

Hygiene practices: Students and staff are expected to maintain vigilance around handwashing, use of hand sanitiser and coughing or sneezing into a tissue or the crook of their arm.
