Tomio and Kimie Yamazaki wish to invite the Applecross SHS community to share in the celebration of life for their precious son, Kent. Please see details below, including the request for special notes to be written to Kent. These notes will be placed on the casket and go with Kent to the crematorium.

 

 

The Department of Education is working with WA Health to monitor and respond to the unfolding international novel coronavirus to take the necessary precautions for students and staff.

 

Update - Travellers from China

From Saturday (1 February) foreign travellers who have left or passed through mainlaind China will be denied entry to Australia for two weeks.

Australian citizens, permanent residents and members of their immediate families will be exempt from the ban but are asked to self-isolate for 14 days from their date of departure from China. 

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) has advised Australians not to travel to China. For the latest travel information visit smarttraveller.gov.au

Update - Students who have returned from mainland China (not just Hubei Province) 

As of Saturday (1 February 2020), all students arriving out of mainland China (not just Hubei Province) must self-isolate in their home for 14 days after leaving China, other than for seeking medical assistance. They are not able to attend school, school events, day care centres or residential colleges. This also applies to parents/carers, contractors, visitors and volunteers on school sites and at school events.

The 14 day exclusion is a precaution to ensure the safest possible environment for children. After 14 days, if the student has no symptoms they may attend school.

Parents/carers should notify their school that the student will be away for the exclusion period, and confirm the date in which they were last in mainland China.

Students in close contact with a person who has a confirmed case of coronovirus

If a student has been informed by Public Health authorities they are a close contact of a confirmed case of the novel coronavirus, irrespective of whether they have developed symptoms, they cannot attend school, school events, day care centres or residential colleges until their local public health unit informs them that it is safe for them to do so.  This also applies to parents/carers, contractors, visitors and volunteers on school sites and at school events.

Parents/carers should notify their school, and evidence from the public health authority is required for the student to return to school.

The WA Department of Health has more information on the virus including factsheets for parents in English and Mandarin and access to a helpline 1800 300 243

 

Acting on the latest information re novel coronavirus from the Department of Health, the Department of Education is implementing the following for public schools.

 

Students who have been in the Hubei Province of China

Students who have been in the Hubei Province of China must be isolated in their home for 14 days after leaving the Hubei Province, other than for seeking individual medical care. They are not able to attend school, school events, day care centres or residential colleges. This also applies to parents/carers, contractors, visitors and volunteers on school sites and at school events.

 

Parents/carers should notify their school that the student will be away for the isolation period and confirm the date in which they were last in the Hubei Province of China.

 

Students who have returned from (including travelled through) mainland China (excluding the Hubei Province) or Hong Kong

Students who have returned from (including travelled through) mainland China (excluding the Hubei Province) or Hong Kong are being asked to stay at home until 14 days after leaving mainland China or Hong Kong.

 

While the risk of the virus spreading is low, this 14 day exclusion is a precaution to ensure the safest possible environment for children. After 14 days, if the student has no symptoms they may attend school.

 

Parents/carers should notify their school that the student will be away for the exclusion period, and confirm the date in which they were last in mainland China or Hong Kong.

 

Students in close contact with a confirmed case

If a student has been informed by Public Health authorities they are a close contact of a confirmed case of the novel coronavirus, irrespective of whether they have developed symptoms, they cannot attend school, school events, day care centres or residential colleges until their local public health unit informs them that it is safe for them to do so. This also applies to parents/carers, contractors, visitors and volunteers on school sites and at school events.

 

Parents/carers should notify their school, and evidence from the public health authority is required for the student to return to school. 

 

The Department of Health website at https://ww2.health.wa.gov.au/coronavirus has more information on the virus and a WA Coronavirus Hotline, on 1800 300 243.  

 

If your child will be away from school for the reasons outlined above, please contact the school to let us know when they were last in China and to discuss any support for your child’s learning while they are absent from school.

 

亲爱的家长和监护人们:

 

根据卫生部对于新型冠状病毒的最新信息,教育部决定对所有公立学校采取以下措施。

 

去过中国湖北省的学生

曾去过中国湖北省的学生必须在家中隔离14天(从离开湖北省之日算起),看医生除外。学生不得来学校上课,参加学校的活动、去幼儿园或者学校宿舍。此项规定也同样适用于来访学校场所和参加学校活动的家长或者监护人、承包人、访客还有志愿者。

 

家长或者监护人们应告知学校,该学生将会隔离一段时间,并通知学校最后一次去过中国湖北省的日期。

 

从中国大陆返回(包括途径,湖北省除外)或香港的学生

在离开中国大陆或香港之后,从大陆或香港返回(包括途径,湖北省除外)的学生请在家中呆满十四天。

 

尽管病毒传播的风险很低,但是14天的隔离预防措施是为了最大程度的确保孩子们的安全。 14天后,如果没有任何症状,则可以上学。

 

家长或监护人应通知学校,该学生将会隔离一段时间,并通知学校最后一次去过中国大陆或香港的日期。

 

与确诊病例有过近距离接触的学生

如果学生已被公共卫生部门告知已与确诊的新型冠状病毒病例有过近距离接触,无论他们是否出现过症状,都不能来学校、参加学校的活动、去幼儿园或者学校宿舍。直到当地公众卫生部门告知他们这样做是安全的,才可执行。这也适用于来访学校场所和参加学校活动的家长或监护人、承包商、访客和志愿者们。

 

家长或监护人应通知学校,并提供公共卫生部门所提供的证明,方可返校。

 

关于有关新型冠状病毒的更多信息,请访问卫生部的网站https://ww2.health.wa.gov.au/coronavirus,以及拨打西澳州冠状病毒公共卫生热线:1800 300 243

The Applecross SHS community is in mourning today after learning of the tragic passing of 15 year old Year 10 student Kent Yamazaki.
 

Kent was in Nepal preparing for an International Tennis Federation tournament on Wednesday when he collapsed on the court and hit his head while training. Sadly, he didn’t regain consciousness.

Kent was known for his infectious smile and genuine positive attitude towards life. He was a popular student and had a wide circle of friends. Kent enjoyed school and particularly enjoyed being part of the Special Tennis Program. His passion and incredible work ethic saw him rise through the ranks and reach great heights in his tennis career, representing WA proudly at many National events. Kent was also a dedicated State League Player and a regular competitor on the WA Tournament scene. Most recently, he was a part of the winning Applecross SHS Team that won the National Championships in Albury.

Kent was always the first player at practice, and embodied the school values of Personal Best and Mutual Respect.

This is a tragic loss and our thoughts and prayers go out to his parents Tomio and Kimie and all of Kent’s family, friends and teachers at this incredibly difficult time. We will be doing everything possible to support our students and staff during the coming days and weeks.

The Year 12 Presentation Evening on Monday night was a wonderful opportunity for our staff, family and friends to come together to celebrate our Year 12 students achievements.

Mr Dickson’s Year 10 HASS Academic Extension class were the chief organisers of this year’s ANZAC Service. Students were very respectful and this is great credit to all. A number of students from Mr Dickson’s class gave short speeches about various aspects of Australia’s military experience. There were also memorable musical performances by students including Holly Ranson, Selena Tan, Ashkaan Singh, Olivia Kirk, Daniel Skinner, Skye Ewington, Lilli Coulson and Suzan Eyssautier. Our Head Girl ,Sophia Ammali and Head Boy, Max Uchino, laid a wreath on behalf of school staff and students. Eva Mustapic also spoke about her forthcoming trip on the Premier’s Anzac Tour to Vietnam. We were honoured to have as our special guest, our local Member of Parliament, Dean Nalder MLA. Mr Nalder had an opportunity to answer questions on life in parliament from Mr Dickson’s class afterwards. Mr Lloyd, Mr Wilding , Mr Stapleton and their teams also played a vital role on the day. Congratulations to Mr Dickson and the Year 10 HASS Academic Extension class for their hard work in marking this significant day in our national life.

Congratulations to Mrs Raich, Mr Lilleyman, Toby, Jordan, Emerald, Georgia and Xaviera for their efforts in getting shaved. We also had Declan from Year 8 and Ms Purvis shave their heads in support of our fund raising. Thanks to Andy Saxton, Mr Goodenough and some Year 12 students for their shaving efforts. Well done to Mr Wilding and as well as Jacob from Year 10 for setting up the sound system. Max Uchino, our Head Boy, did a magnificent job hosting this lunchtime event. The efforts of Sophia Ammali in taking the photos as well as of the others who helped with the collection made the day a roaring success. As at 3pm on March 14th we have raised over $7200. You can still donate at this link https://bit.ly/2tKQjed

 

I would especially like to acknowledge Andy Saxton our School Chaplain. He is the main driving force of this Year 12 Student Council event. The 2020 now have a serious challenge if they are going to raise more than this amount next year but I have already heard them discussing who will be shaved in 2020.
