Events Update

Following the Federal and State Government announcements on Friday 8 May, outlining stages for easing of social distancing restrictions, the School has reviewed its Term 2 events calendar.

A brief summary of the staged event restrictions advised by the Queensland Government is outlined below. Please note, these dates are a guide only and the government will continue to review COVID-19 developments to determine if the next stage will be implemented.

Stage Restrictions
Stage 1 – from Friday 15 May gatherings of up to 10 people
Stage 2 – from Friday 12 June gatherings of up to 20 people
Stage 3 – from Friday 10 July gatherings of up to 100 people

School events must align with physical distancing requirements, including an allowance of four square metres per person in an indoor venue, and increased cleaning and hygiene protocols outlined by the Chief Health Officer.

The School continues to monitor the Government’s advice around gatherings to determine the best approach for events scheduled for the remainder of the year.

While it is deeply upsetting that some events need to be postponed or delivered in different ways, the health and wellbeing of BGGS students, staff and families will always be our highest priority.
