Tomaree PS and Tomaree HS non-operational 23 July

Tomaree PS and Tomaree HS will be non-operational for on-site learning on Thursday 23 July 2020 as a student has tested positive for COVID-19.

22 July 2020

We wish to advise that Tomaree Public School and Tomaree High School will both be non-operational for on-site learning on Thursday 23 July 2020. Students from both schools will undertake learning from home.

The Department of Education has been advised by NSW Health that a student attending Tomaree Public School has tested positive for COVID-19. Both schools will be non-operational for the on-site attendance of staff and students to allow time for the school to complete the contact tracing process and have both sites professionally cleaned.

While the school sites are both non–operational, learning materials are available through the Department’s ‘Learning from Home’ website.
