Dear carers,

In Greater Sydney and other areas currently operating under Level 4 restrictions, the NSW Health advice is that it is safest for students to return in stages rather than all at once. Students in Kindergarten and Year 1 will return first given the importance of developing their foundational learning in the early years and their disrupted experience to date.

This morning the Premier announced new dates for the staged return of students to school. These are:

  • 18 October: Kindergarten and Year 1 (Week 3)
  • 25 October: Years 2 and 6 (Week 4)
  • 1 November: Years 3, 4 and 5 (Week 5)

In order for us to maintain learning at home programs and lessons whilst also teaching students who return under a staged return, please complete this survey as soon as possible.

This is especially important if you are an essential worker and you need your child to return to school before their grade’s staged return date.

Kind regards,
