The NSW Government has today announced full-time face-to-face teaching at public schools will begin on Monday, 25 May.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said part-time face-to-face teaching has been underway since Monday, 11 May.
“While some activities like assemblies and excursions will not occur, having students back at school full-time means their education can progress,” Mr Crouch said.
“Each school has unique circumstances and each Principal will communicate the next steps to their school community.
“I want to thank Principals, teachers and all school staff who have managed online teaching and now the return to face-to-face teaching so well.
“I also know that this decision comes as a relief to many parents on the Central Coast. It means they can get back to work and resume a more ‘normal’ daily routine.”
Mr Crouch said a significant amount of work had been undertaken to ensure COVID-safe routines are implemented.
“More than 70,000 bottles of hand sanitizer as well as hygiene and cleaning supplies have been distributed across NSW, including every public school on the Central Coast,” Mr Crouch said.
“Extra cleaning is also being undertaken thanks to a $250 million investment from the NSW Government.”
