Information from TISC regarding COVID-19

Firstly, on behalf of TISC's member institutions and staff, I want to express my thanks to all the teachers, support staff and administrative staff within our schools for the incredible work you are doing in very difficult circumstances. We are all dealing with a rapidly changing and uncertain situation as the COVID-19 pandemic continues.

TISC is closely monitoring the unfolding situation and acknowledges that there will be unavoidable and significant disruption for all school communities this year. While the situation will affect all students, we are particularly mindful of the impact it will have on Year 12 students.

I want to assure all Year 12 students that TISC will be working closely with WA universities, the School Curriculum and Standards Authority and other states' Tertiary Admissions Centres to make sure that fair and transparent admissions processes are available for everyone seeking entry to university in 2021. Like you, we will need to make decisions as the year progresses as to the best way forward. We will keep you informed of those as they happen.

Other information you should be aware of:
  • The TISC office will re-open on the 18 May to public enquiries though social distancing will be implemented in our public space. Some TISC staff will still be working remotely.
  • Our preferred contact is via telephone or email. Use email to contact us: Your query will be directed to the most appropriate staff member for action.
  • We will be providing an expanded and updated series of videos on the website in the next couple of weeks, covering a range of topics of interest to school communities. These will be available for individuals to view, or schools to use with their Year 12s if the continuing social distancing protocols prevent standard school presentations.
  • We will continue to update the website and send out information to keep you informed of any changes over the coming months.
On behalf of everyone at TISC, I send our best wishes to you all as we navigate this very challenging situation.

Executive Officer
