Parliamentary Questions


Question Without Notice No. 1038 asked in the Legislative Council on 30 November 2021 by Hon Sophia Moermond

Parliament: 41 Session: 1

CORONAVIRUS — VACCINATIONS — STUDENTS

1038. Hon SOPHIA MOERMOND to the Minister for Education and Training:

(1) How will students who have not been vaccinated be affected by mandating laws?

(2) In the event of a lockdown, will options such as home schooling or remote access be funded by the Labor government?

Hon SUE ELLERY replied:

I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.

(1) There is no mandate for students to be vaccinated. However, students will be required to be vaccinated to undertake work placements in some industries, per the Chief Health Officer's public health directions.

(2) The McGowan government has relied on the advice of the Chief Health Officer throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and it will continue to do so. Schools have contingency plans in place to enable continuity of learning irrespective of the restrictions that may be introduced.
