With the serious effects of respiratory infection caused by the new strain of the Covid-19, the Western Australian International School System has carried out numerous actions to prevent the spread of the infection of the epidemic in the school.
The Vietnam Ministry of Health prioritized the prevention of respiratory infections caused by Coronavirus (Covid-19), although there is yet no specific vaccine and is causing tremendous issues in many countries and regions, including Vietnam. This is a new and dangerous epidemic with a high possibility of breaking out.
During the epidemic prevention period, the leadership team, staff, and teachers of the Western Australian International School System regularly hold weekly meetings to update the latest information from the Department of Health, as well as planning to take proactive measures to prevent the disease when students return to school.
With the motto of “protection for students’ safety and health” as a key mission, the school’s Board of Directors urgently organized training to guide surveillance and information on disease prevention for all staff and teachers. In addition, WASS also conducted health checks by undertaking body temperature measurements and made specific plans for checkups at each campus such as equipment, temperature measuring devices, medical masks, medical gloves, dry hand sanitizer, paper towels and floor cleaning. Most importantly, all classrooms of the Western Australian International School System will be cleaned with an antiseptic agent and disinfectant spray as directed by the Ministry of Education and Training.
WASS is continuously updating information from the World Health Organization (WHO) and Ministry of Education and Training (MoET) to make the most effective plan for disease prevention and learning timetable adjustments for all WASSers.
Alongside with Covid-19 epidemic prevention, WASS encourages parents and children to apply additional home prevention measures by referring to instructions from the Ministry of Health.
