covid19 banner

The NSW Department of Education has been advised this evening by NSW Health that another member of our school community has tested positive for COVID-19.

Our school will be non-operational for the on-site attendance of staff and students tomorrow Tuesday 31 August 2021 to allow time for contact tracing and cleaning.

NSW Health has requested anyone who has been unwell or if you develop any symptoms such as a fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, runny nose, loss of smell/taste, muscle/joint pains, diarrhoea, nausea/vomiting or extreme tiredness to be tested at one of the COVID-19 testing clinics.

Further information about COVID-19 is available on the NSW Government website.

The NSW Department of Education will continue to work closely with NSW Health to ensure the health and safety of all students and staff is maintained.

The safety and wellbeing of our staff and students is of paramount importance to us at all times. As such we will continue to work closely with NSW Health to ensure that all necessary health advice is adhered to. 

While we recognise this will be disruptive and inconvenient for families, it is important that we follow NSW Health advice and take all necessary precautions to minimise the risk of further transmission to support our community.

Further communication will be provided tomorrow which will include when the school will resume operations.

Thank you for your ongoing support.
