Student Coronavirus Testing at Parkside! 22/03/21
After months of remote education, Parkside students returned back to College with a staggered start seeing Year 11 and Year 10 Set 2 students arriving first on Tuesday 9th March, followed by Year 10 Set 1 and Year 9 students on Wednesday 10th March.
Students however, had to face some changes to their College day with the protocols that have been implemented by the government to include mandatory face coverings in classrooms and rapid coronavirus (COVID-19) tests upon arrival. Students who had consent from parents, guardians and carers, were
tested using the Lateral Flow Test kits which took place in the testing station on site, and was undertaken by staff that have been trained to carry out the tests. Measures were put in place to ensure that the environment was secure and safe for all involved.
