Updates to our Term 4 calendar of events

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. Students will return to learning onsite in two phases:

Monday 18th October: Kindergarten, Year 1 and Year 12

Monday 25th October: All students return

The modifications we have made to our Term 4 calendar of events based on health advice is outlined below. This page will continue to be updated as circumstances evolve.

Co-curricular Activities and Interhouse Activities

A range of co-curricular activities and interhouse activities will continue to be offered online during the first part of Term 4, while all students continue to learn from home. When students return to school onsite, additional co-curricular opportunities may be added if these are permitted by the health guidelines at the time. Further information will be provided to families during the term.


Co-curricular Sport

Unfortunately, due to current COVID restrictions, competitive Inter-School Sport has been cancelled for Term 4. This includes all carnivals and as well as all Saturday sport. As restrictions are eased within the community, we may be able to hold some trials for 2022 sports and/or smaller friendly matches towards the end of the Term.

 

Co-curricular Music

Online Music Ensemble activities will continue for weeks 1 to 4. When students return onsite, we will consider the best way to offer any music activities that are permitted within the specific health guidelines for these different activities.
