Face Masks

In the interest of safety, and to lower the risk for the entire community, face masks must be worn by all staff, students and visitors in public areas, where a minimum distance of 1.5 metres cannot be maintained

Face Masks must be worn by all Staff and students participating in service and food preparation

Mask wearing is not mandatory in settings where social distancing of 1.5 metres can be maintained (e.g. big rooms, small group events, outdoor activities).


Daily Temperature Checks

Daily Temperature checks will continue for all staff, students and visitors. Checks are normally carried out at the campus reception area, after which, a face mask will be provided.


Classroom Management 

Face masks must be worn by all staff and students in class and moving between classes. Exceptions can be made when faculty can maintain sufficient social distance from students (1.5 metres), then faculty do not need to wear face masks.


Restaurant Management

Class group timetables are arranged to have a steady flow of students for meals and to optimise restaurant space

Face masks must be worn by all staff and students when moving through the restaurant.


Medical support 

Priority medical appointments are available for any student who require medical assistance – please contact Front Desk or Residential Management Team.


Self Quarantine

Any staff or student displaying flu like symptoms will be required to self-quarantine for 10 days.

Students who are worried that they may have flu like symptoms should phone the student counsellor and if not available, a Resident Manager who is available 24/7.


Visitor policies

All school visits are approved centrally by Victor Goncalves & Ronan Fitzgerald.


 Public Gatherings

We have minimimized large public gatherings and unnecessary social activities. Campus specific activities will be communicated to you by your Operations Director.


 General Safety Guidelines

Hand sanitizers and face masks are available to everyone on all campuses and in all administrative offices.

Additional cleaning is taking place in all public areas, particularly focussing on areas where numerous people may be touching the same item, i.e. door handles, work stations, etc.


Health questionnaire
