Updated Return to School

As you may have already heard in the media, the NSW Government has announced that we can return to school sooner than we initially expected. Students will now return to face-to-face learning, within NSW Health-approved COVID-safe settings, on the following dates:  

  • From 18 October – Prep, Kindergarten, Year 1/2 and Year 12  
  • From 25 October – Year 6 and 11  
  • From 1 November – Year 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9 and 10 

This means that we will be applying COVID-safe protocols within school life into the immediate future. This will include:

  • Phased re-entry of cohorts over several weeks from 18 October (as above).
  • Separation of school sections P-6 and 7-12 where possible.
  • Wearing of facemasks whilst at school for all Staff and Secondary students. This will be optional for Primary students.
  • Well-ventilated classrooms and offices with windows open.
  • Restricted parent access to the school. Parents will be asked to rely on remote methods of contact.
  • Adults to maintain social distancing.
  • Sanitation stations placed around the school and used regularly.
  • Regular professional cleaning of buildings and surfaces.

It is encouraging that we have a plan for an eventual full return. Although ongoing limits may still apply in some situations, we are hopeful of a more normal school experience for our students. It has been a long journey to this point, but we can see light at the end of the tunnel now. We look forward to reconnecting in person one day soon.
