COVID-19 Safety Plans

We’ve developed this COVID-19 Safety Plan to help create a safe environment for conducting Year 12 formals. 

There are additional industry-specific COVID-19 Safety Plans available on the NSW Government website which may also be useful when planning your school formal. This document should also be used in conjunction with the policies and procedures relevant to each education sector.

On 17 August, NSW announced guidance to minimise the risk of COVID-19 transmission impacting NSW schools including the deferral of school-related social activities, particularly with Year 12 students only weeks away from their HSC exams. The last written exam for the 2020 HSC is on Wednesday 11 November. If NSW can keep notifications low and testing rates high within this age group, Year 12 formals should be able to proceed in Term 4, starting from 12 November 2020.

Keep your plan up to date

You may need to update the plan in the future, as restrictions and advice changes.

Your COVID-19 Safety Plan

You can either:

  • use the provided COVID-19 Safety Plan to address the checklist of matters for Year 12 formals
  • keep using your existing plan, if you have one, after making sure it includes all the items in the provided COVID-19 Safety Plan.
