Year 12 students can book a priority appointment at the AIS Arena COVID-19 mass vaccination clinic and get vaccinated between Monday 6 September to Friday 17 September 2021.
These priority appointments are available for all Year 12 students across the ACT, including public, private, Catholic and specialist schools.
Call the ACT COVID-19 booking line on 02 5124 7700 (7am to 7pm, daily) to make a priority booking. You’ll need to answer some questions to confirm your eligibility. Use the call back service so you don’t have to wait on the line.

You can also choose to get your Pfizer vaccination at a participating GP, who have been asked to prioritise year 12 students.

The Lake Online Guide - Remote Learning
The College provides quality online learning environments and programs for students. This guide was devised to support all students in their move to remote learning.
The guide is an evolving document and will be updated in response to changing circumstances.
Remote Learning Timetable
We know that being in lockdown can be stressful for some families. For the next few weeks, the most important thing you can do is support your child’s wellbeing – they may be feeling anxious or distressed. Older children may be also feeling overwhelmed with the information they are seeing on the internet and they may need some guidance to help them find the most-appropriate information.
Keep in mind that children can express their feelings in many ways. I encourage you to speak openly with your children about what they are feeling.
As a parent or carer you can help your child with what they’re experiencing:
* Listen to their concerns – let them know you’re there for them and acknowledge how they’re feeling
* Make time to talk – provide an space for them to share their feelings and worries.
* Focus on strengths and hope.
There are a range of online and face-to-face services that can help you support your child. ACT Health has put together a page of information that families may find useful: Ways you can support your own mental health and wellbeing | Health (act.gov.au)
