VIC LOCKDOWN FROM 16 JULY:
Like New South Wales, this is very much a 'wait-and-see' scenario. However, we are flexible with the date that your school is able to sit the Quiz once it re-opens.
NSW SCHOOLS COVID UPDATE:
If your school becomes affected by further COVID restrictions after July 16, please be aware that you can now sit the hard copy Quiz, at any convenient time, up to Friday 13 August, with a view to a possible extension if necessary. Please return the answer sheets as soon as possible after the Quiz is completed.
At this stage, we would prefer not to switch hard copy students to the online format for a number of reasons, one of which is the inability of students being supervised. However, we will do our best to cater to the schools that may require the switch to online, if needed.
It would be appreciated if you could complete this ‘worst case scenario’ spreadsheet with your participating students’ details, in case it looks likely that a shift to online sitting is required. We will need these details to allocate logins and passwords. DO NOT EMAIL THE LIST UNTIL ADVISED, BUT PLEASE HAVE READY AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. Thank you!
If your students are already registered for the online Quiz, we would prefer them to be teacher supervised, but understand that this might not be possible. Like the hard copy paper, the sitting time for the online Quiz has been extended to 13 August to accommodate school requests and possible lockdown extensions.
Preferred Quiz date:
Thursday 29 July 2021
