Sporting considerations for 2021 

Due to COVID-19, ensuring the health, safety and wellbeing of all officials, spectators and participants at NSW Department of Education sporting events is paramount. When external venues are used, event organisers will work closely with venue management to ensure that the required COVID safety protocols are put in place. COVID safety planning will require event organisers to make decisions related to local context and the requirements of each venue and event. Some of these decisions may include applying spectator limits and staggering participation times. The understanding and cooperation of all school communities will be crucial in ensuring the safe and smooth running of these events in 2021.
