The department has been advised by NSW Health this morning 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 contact tracing 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.

The trial HSC examination planned for tomorrow will not take place. The examination will be rescheduled and students notified.

NSW Health has requested anyone who has been unwell or develops 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.

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

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.
