The department has been advised by NSW Health that a student has tested positive for COVID-19. The school will be non-operational tomorrow for the on-site attendance of staff and students to allow time for the school to complete the contact tracing process and have the school cleaned. All staff and students are asked to self-isolate while contact tracing occurs.

While the school site is non-operational, learning materials are available through the department’s Learning from home website.

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 clinics. NSW Health suggest attending the Children’s Assessment Clinic (Children’s Hospital Westmead) or the drive-through clinic at Western Sydney University (Parramatta Campus).

Further advice will be provided tomorrow advising when the school will resume on-site learning.

Further information on COVID 19 is available on the NSW Health website. If you have any education-related questions please contact 1300 338 679.

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.
