Kingscliff High School WAVE engagement reports are published twice per term (weeks 5 and 10). Due to the inconsistencies over the past 5 weeks, this particular period for this term (Term 3, weeks 5-10) will not be formally reported on. Please contact the relevant Year Adviser if you would like information with regards to your child’s engagement levels while on ‘learning from home’ phase.

The current restrictions in the Tweed LGA will be eased as planned from 12:01am on Saturday 11 September. This means our students and staff will return to site operating under our COVID-safe return to site roadmap plans from Monday 13 September. Our students are expected – and will be supported - to return to school for face-to-face learning. Wearing a mask or face covering continues to be required for all staff  and students in Year 7 and above indoors and outdoors while on school grounds. For more detail please refer to the letter attached. This has been emailed to all families, and appears in our upcoming Kingy Spirit newsletter.

Dear parents/carers, Unfortunately, the state-wide stay-at-home restrictions for NSW have been extended for another week. This means that Level 4 restrictions and learning from home will continue for all Kingscliff High School students from Monday 23rd August 2021 to Friday 27th August 2021. Our school will continue to be open with minimal supervision to support those students who cannot be educated from home, for example if their parent or carer is an essential worker. Students for whom it is essential to attend will be undertaking online learning and must wear face masks whilst indoors. The canteen will continue to be closed. I thank families who have been able to keep their children at home this week to minimise movement in the community and help stop the spread of COVID-19. By now all students should be engaging with their learning via Google Classroom. Please remember
