Lessons at the Conservatorium from 11 October

Recent changes to NSW Public Health orders may impact students, families and staff attending lessons at the Gunnedah Conservatorium of Music.

From October 11, persons aged 16 and over will only be permitted to enter the Conservatorium if they are fully vaccinated or have a medical exemption. This includes students and any parents or caregivers who may accompany students to lessons.

To limit numbers in the building, we encourage parents to drop off students and remain outside the building where it is safe to do so.

Before anyone is permitted to enter the building, a staff member will ask sight one of the following:

  • a COVID-19 digital certificate,
  • a printed version of the COVID-19 digital certificate or immunisation history statement (available through myGov), or
  • a medical contraindication form.

If you are unable to attend face-to-face lessons due to these restrictions, lessons can be delivered online using Zoom. Please send an email admin@gunedahconservatorium.com if you would like to arrange this.

The new Public Health Order coincides with Gunnedah Shire coming out of lockdown as of midnight Sunday 10 October. Students who have COVID symptoms SHOULD NOT attend lessons. Please, if you have any COVID symptoms, get tested. Stay safe, stay strong.

From December 1 (or 90% vaccination rate), all students and visitors are permitted to enter the premises regardless of their vaccination status.

Students must not attend lessons if they have any signs of illness. Anyone who visits the building is required to comply with current guidelines, including QR codes and mask-wearing.

If you have any questions, please contact Director, Rebecca Ryan on (02) 6742 3998.

Please be patient with Conservatorium staff as they do their best to follow these updated NSW Public Health Orders. The staff at the Conservatorium have the right to do their work in an environment free from violent, threatening or abusive behaviour. Police will be called in the event of any physical or verbal abuse directed toward staff or other Conservatorium families.

Yours sincerely, 

Rebecca Ryan
Gunnedah Conservatorium
