COVID-19 response

ALC continues to closely monitor advice from the authorities regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and review its response in the interest of our community’s health and safety.

All ALC students, staff and guests should refrain from attending the campus if they are feeling unwell.

Any student or staff member who is in isolation or quarantine is asked to advise the Principal’s office. The ALC Principal reserves the right to exclude any person from returning to the ALC campus until he is confident that all quarantining and precautionary steps have been observed. This may include a requirement for COVID-19 testing.  


Higher Education coursework

ALC continues to deliver its higher education program with a range of face-to-face and online learning options for all students.

In the event of personal reasons that may prevent participation in classes (including illness and people in at-risk, immune-compromised categories) students are asked to inform the Academic Dean, Dr Merryn Ruwoldt as soon as possible, so alternative arrangements for course delivery can be made.

Access to resources on ARK and handling of enrolments and enquiries will continue as normal.
