Following the Queensland State Government’s directive regarding contact tracing and the use of the Check-In Queensland app at a range of different venues across the state, visitors to Faith Lutheran College, including parents, are now able to check-in when visiting the campus.
While check-in is not currently mandatory for secondary schools, or students, Faith is committed to supporting our community and to taking all possible precautions when it comes to reducing the risk of COVID-19. As a result, parents and visitors to the Faith Lutheran College grounds are strongly encouraged to check-in using the Check-In Queensland app.
The app, which can be downloaded for free using either Google Play (for Android phone users) or via the App Store (Apple/iOS phone users), uses QR codes to register your visit to the college, and, in the event of an outbreak of COVID-19, helps to assist the Queensland Government in their contact tracing and notification efforts. Check-in points, which are easily identified by a maroon-coloured sign featuring a large QR code, are now located in College Reception and inside the Faith Sports Centre.
The data collected by the Check-In Queensland app is transmitted directly to the Queensland Government (with no visibility by the College), kept on record for 56 days, and is accessed only to aid in contact-tracing efforts, if required. After this period has elapsed, the data from that day is deleted.
Barring any new restrictions or lock-downs being imposed, the addition of check-in points to the College will allow us to continue to run a number of events here at the College, including the upcoming production of Xanadu – this year’s College musical – and the Faith Careers Expo in early August, confident that we are taking all the relevant precautions to keep our community safe and healthy.
