Updates to our calendar of events

On Monday morning, Premier Gladys Berejiklian encouraged parents in NSW to keep their children at home wherever possible. SCEGGS will NOT be open for students from Monday 23rd March although a skeleton staff will be available to supervise children of essential workers and other children who are not in a position to be supervised at home. We will begin at-home learning from Tuesday 24th March until the end of Term 1. Information was emailed to parents on Sunday and on Monday.

The advice from State and Federal Government Departments about managing the Coronavirus will continue to evolve and we will continue to monitor the situation and update our community as information comes to hand.

The health and safety of our girls, staff and families is uppermost in mind and we will continue to reflect carefully about all operations of the school, and the regular advice being given to us all. The modifications we have made to our Term 1 calendar of events based on this advice are outlined below.

This page will continue to be updated as circumstances evolve.
