We're getting ready to return to school!

Getting ready to return

We’re excited about our return to face-to-face learning and welcoming students and staff back onsite where we know the best learning happens. 

We know that while there will be excitement, there will also be some anxiety and uncertainty about being back together at school. Recent evidence shows that very little COVID transmission happens between children in school settings, and only a very small number of children who contract COVID-19 get seriously ill. However, to support school safety, we are requiring all staff on site to be fully vaccinated. In addition, we have worked with NSW Health and the DoE on our COVID-safe return to on-site schooling and have developed effective practices to support this, including staff vaccinations, mask wearing, reduced mingling of staff and student groups, good ventilation in classrooms and continued good hygiene and enhanced cleaning. We are confident that this, in combination with support from our school community, will minimise risk and help to keep schools open and students learning face-to-face next to their peers. 

  • from 18 October –Kindergarten and Year 1 students 
  • from 25 October – all remaining year groups.

Online learning will cease for all students, as of their scheduled return to school date. Students who are unable to attend due to immunocompromised medical reasons will be supported on a case-by-case basis and, pending health advice, supported to work from home.
