A 'phased social distancing strategy' was implemented from Monday 16 March 2020 following advice from the NSW Department of Education.

The Department now advises that due to the COVID-19 outbreak and ‘social distancing strategy’, all programs for Terms 1 and 2 are now cancelled.

The health and wellbeing of everyone involved is paramount and at the heart of this decision. We recognise the pressures that schools are currently experiencing and supporting staff and students is our highest priority.
