ICB board had an emergency meeting regarding the rapid development of COVID-19 and its impact on the college. A decision has been made that the college will continue to operate as normal and we will continue to follow the guidelines from Qld Health, Dept of Education and Training (DET), Independent Schools of Qld (ISQ) and to take advice from our Islamic community leaders with regards to all safety measures for the College.

We ask that you continue to take all necessary local actions to support your child’s and the school’s health and hygiene and act in a protective and preventative manner to help limit the spread of coronavirus. We will continue to provide communication as Australia’s response to COVID-19 evolves. Thank you for your vigilance in helping us manage this public health issue.

What is ICB doing?
  • We have established a Coronavirus Health Action Team (CHAT) and developed a College Pandemic Plan. Our response is adaptable and will change in response to the situation
  • We are monitoring the changing conditions and relying on Queensland and Australian Government Health organisations to give us instructions and advice
  • We have a zero-tolerance policy regarding illness within our working environment and that includes students, staff and parents within our community. If you or a student are sick with flu like symptoms you or the student must stay home until recovered
  • If you have been traveling or been in contact with an 'at risk' traveller, we expect that you will self-isolate and follow bio-security measures- Please notify our Health Action Team ASAP- use the contact form below or call the College nurse
  • The College is expecting notifications from staff and families of any possible, probable or confirmed contact with coronavirus. Contact our Health Action Team immediately
  • The Health Action Team and Heads of School are also assessing the potential risks for all events, excursions, incursions and activities. This will be assessed individually and any alterations to schedules will be managed under advisement from health advisers and organisations. Communication of any changes will be from the Classroom teacher.
