UPDATE 5: Preparation for a return to school from 3rd
Thursday 23rd September 2021 a meeting involving the Minister of Private
Education, the Ministry of Health and the union of private schools was
held. At this meeting it was decreed
that students aged 12 years or older:
- must have received 2 doses of the
approved vaccines Pfizer Biontech, Moderna, Oxford Astrazeneca or 1 dose of the
Johnson and Johnson vaccine to be fully vaccinated. Fully vaccinated students will not need to
take a PCR test in order to enter the school premises.
- who have received only 1 dose of
Pfizer Biontech, Moderna or Oxford Astrazeneca are NOT FULLY vaccinated and will need to produce a weekly negative
test result for a PCR test taken not more than 72 hours before entering school
schools have to comply with these new regulations. Consequently if your
son/daughter is not fully vaccinated you must ensure that you comply with the
Ministry of Health requirements. The school is not permitted by law to accept
students into the school who do not comply with the regulations and this is
beyond the school’s control.
look forward to your support in this matter.
