NSW Students Will Return to School a Week Earlier

  • Kids

Great news for all homeschooling parents! Schools in New South Wales will be welcoming children back a week earlier. 

The new timetable means kindergarten, year 1 and year 12 students will return on 18 October.

Then there will be a staggered return of all other students over the following two weeks, with years 2, 6 and 11 returning on 25 October. And all other grades resuming on 1 November.

Earlier on Wednesday, the premier, Gladys Berejiklian, said getting children back into school earlier was always an option.

“I want to stress we are carefully considering the options we have to get kids to school earlier if we can,” she explained. 

NSW has exceeded vaccination double dosage expectations and will hit 70% coverage of the adult population ahead of schedule.

What next? We've written a full breakdown of the three-stage plan to freedom which will help with what you can and can't do from October 11.
