COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate

We have received word from St Bernard’s that we must have as many of our eligible fencers vaccinated as possible due to the Ministry of Education’s requirements. What this means for you is that all of our fencers, parents visiting classes, volunteers and coordinators that are over theage of 16 must have their first COVID 19 vaccine before the 15th of November.

This is stipulated by the government under the COVID-19 Public Health Response (Vaccination) Amendment order (No 3) 2021. If you have not received your first dose of the COVID 19 vaccine, it is URGENT that you get yourself booked in for as soon as possible if you wish to continue to participate in our classes from November 15th onwards. Unfortunately, you HAVE to be vaccinated to attend sessions at St Bernards.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this, please feel free to reach out to us by emailing
