The advice from NSW Health and the NSW government about health restrictions and managing the current COVID-19 outbreak is constantly evolving. 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.
Learning from home began for all students at SCEGGS on Wednesday 14th July 2021. The modifications we have made to our Term 3 calendar of events based on health advice is outlined below. This page will continue to be updated as circumstances evolve.
