I would like to confirm with you that a member of our school community has tested positive for COVID-19. NSW Health have promptly assessed the situation and advised that there is no requirement to cease school operations.
As we are operating strict cohorting at our school, only students in Year 8 and 9 are asked to self-isolate as a precaution while we complete contact tracing.
Students who are sitting HSC exams are advised that exams will continue at the school as planned.
NSW Health reminds 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 on COVID-19 is available on the NSW Government website.
Thank you for your support.
