In response to the global COVID-19 crisis, CTCA has implemented a number of measures and changes to our teaching, operation and services according to the advices and directives from the state and federal governments, the Australian College of Theology, and other relevant agencies since March 2020.
We have been communicating with our students and staff to encourage them to stay up-to-date with the development of this crisis and government directives, including the information about hygiene, self-isolation, social distancing, travel restrictions and government support.
We believe when we face this challenge with love, understanding, patience and adaptability, we can help maintain a safe and orderly environment for the place we are residing in and bear good witness to God. As a community, our actions can make a difference.
