Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

A Western Australia School Leavers Strategy will still proceed in the South West from Monday 23 November 2020 through to Thursday 26 November 2020, despite the changing environment and circumstances resulting from COVID-19.

The WA Police Force and the Leavers Strategy partners, in conjunction with the Department of Health, will plan and organise activities for this year’s School Leavers, but in consideration of the current COVID-19 impacted environment. Baptist Churches WA/Green Team will not be providing the Leavers Entertainment Zone for Leavers 2020. However, planning of other events and activities are still underway and will be finalised closer to the date.  

The key focus of the Leavers Strategy will remain the same – to provide harm minimisation and safety to the School Leavers and the local community of the South West.  

For updates on the School Leavers schedule for Leavers week, please refer to the Leavers WA Facebook page.
