Back to School Plan
The Queensland Government has released its back to school plan. The plan will be in place from 7 February to 4 March 2022.
Unsure about what the plan means for your school tuckshop? QAST recommends convenors and P&Cs work with the school principal to establish guidelines and limits on visitors (including volunteers) and activities on school grounds.
