Brother Augustine helps with COVID Testing at SJBC
Posted: Tue, 12 Jan 2021 11:11
Br Augustine SDB showed his versatility by helping out with Lateral Flow Tests for COVID-19 at St John Bosco College, Battersea.
As a new scheme for administering the rapid-result tests in schools was announced just as the Christmas holiday was beginning, schools worked hard to prepare for testing when term began this month. Br Augustine was helping with tests for staff and students.
Although a new national lockdown for England was announced just after the new term started, advice from the Department for Education is that those staff and students still attending school (vulnerable children and children of key-workers) should still be tested in line with the new scheme. Br Augustine's new skills will continue to be used, although many students are now learning from home.
