Dear Parents and Carers
On Saturday 17 July, NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian announced stronger Greater Sydney lockdown restrictions. This means people who live in Fairfield, Canterbury Bankstown or Liverpool Local Government Areas (LGA) cannot leave their LGA for work unless they are emergency services or healthcare workers (including age and disability workers).
As you would understand, some staff at schools in Western Sydney live in the areas mentioned above. With reduced numbers of staff available to be on-site each day, and with these new restrictions, the expectation is that children engage in remote learning from home.
Supervision will be provided at school only for families who need this support. This is limited to the children of essential workers, vulnerable students, or those who are not at home and have no other options for supervision of their children due to work responsibilities. This learning will be delivered in the same form as to students who are learning at home.
Doing everything we can to keep all members of our community safe and healthy is our highest priority. As we continue to work together to respond to COVID-19, your cooperation and understanding are greatly appreciated. COVID-19 case locations are listed on the NSW Health website here. As there have been many case locations across the Diocese of Parramatta, I encourage you to check this information regularly.
We are always available to discuss your child’s needs. Please be assured that we will continue to support your children in their learning and wellbeing in Term 3.
Please stay safe.
Mrs Tania Cairns
