The James Cook Boys High School P & C Association is excited to announce a new fundraising initiative that will help raise much needed funds for the P & C’s current projects - Quadrangle Equipment and Facilities Upgrade and the STEM Garden Project. Not only is this fundraiser super simple, it’s also extremely delicious but we need your help! 

We’re selling: Bite Size ‘FUN’raising Bites! These are Australia’s highest award winning biscuits! Each and every biscuit is packed full of real ingredients for a superior taste, and do not contain any added flavours or preservatives. They are all 100% made in Australia so they support local farmers and businesses in the process with part of the proceeds being donated to the Bite Size Kids Appeal

Dear JCBTHS Parents,

Welcome to Term 2 - 2022

Change to Covid Close Contact guidelines

Students and staff who are close contacts can attend school as long as they wear a mask, RAT test negative everyday and have no cold or flu like symptoms. You must contact the school office if your son is identified as a close contact.

If a student tests positive, they must isolate for 7 days. Upon returning they need to be symptom free and wear a mask for 3 days when they return to school,  parents will need to notify the school.

As with last term, no one can be on the premises if they have cold and flu like symptoms.

If you require additional RAT test kits, please have your son attend the student services office to collect them.

If you have any questions, please contact the school office on 9587-1770

Kind Regards

Mark Marciniak
