Message from our CEO

We are living through interesting days and I commend our Principals and School leaders for the leadership shown to their school communities. I want to assure you that CSA staff have been and continue to be available right through this crisis. Our offices always remain open and functional. Please reach out to us, as many of you are already doing, if you need support, advice or direction. We are another set of hands to call upon. CSA is taking advice from public health experts and we encourage individual schools to do likewise.

Keeping you safe at CSA events

We are committed to the health and safety of our member community and guests at all CSA events, and are following government guidelines regarding the spread of COVID-19. Please note that most venues and activity providers have their own COVID-safe practices with restrictions in place including physical distancing and a number of other health and safety procedures. One such requirement is that participants and/or attendees (aged 16 years and over) may need to prove they are fully vaccinated with an approved COVID-19 vaccine. The easiest way to do this is to link your COVID-19 digital vaccination certificate to your relevant State contact tracing app. As you can imagine, this is a fluid and dynamic space. Each of our events will contain specific COVID-safe information to ensure you are informed of such requirements. 

COVID-19 Recovery Tracker

CSA has partnered with ORIMA on two major research projects over the past two years. Their work is quality research completed at a very high level of professionalism. 

During COVID, ORIMA has been completing its own research and made these results publicly available for use. The COVID response Tracker (CRT) results help to track and understand how the Australian community is handling the impact of the pandemic. The research creates benchmarks that can be used to interpret other community data. As of 23 July, 24,250 respondents had completed the core questions of the CRT survey with approximately 400 respondents completing a longer version of the survey each fortnight.

The COVID Recovery Tracker (CRT) insights may be useful to CSA schools in terms of school-based policy development or to understand community sentiment at this time. Schools are free to use and reference this information (simply cite ORIMA.com). 

CSA has compiled a series of posts with some of this relevant research from ORIMA, which we hope you will find useful as you navigate your response to, and care of, your respective school communities.
