In an effort to ensure the safety of your child attending Learning Labs we have enacted the following:

  • Mandatory double vaccination of all Learning Labs teachers, volunteers and staff working on the program in line with NSW DoE guidelines
  • Outside drop off and pick up areas
  • Rooms that will address ventilation requirements and adequate size
  • Mask wearing in line with current NSW Health advice

We encourage all eligible persons to get vaccinated to ensure the safety of our community, especially our younger persons and those whose immune systems are compromised. We will do everything we can to mitigate the risk of transmission of COVID-19 but we cannot guarantee zero risk of infection for attendees or family members coming on the UOW campus for Learning Labs. We encourage all families to consider the information provided, in conjunction with personal circumstances, in order to make an informed decision about participation in the July 2022 Learning Labs program.
