NSW Premier indicates NSW students could return to school from Week 3 of Term 2 (May 11th 2020).
“The first two weeks of Term 2, we envisage the term will be exactly the same as the end of Term 1 was like," Ms Berejiklian said in this mornings's briefing.
"However, from week three of Term 2 there will be more face to face contact for students and we're currently going through the process of speaking to stakeholders, to principals and teachers to look at the various options and what will work for NSW."
"I completely support the notion that we should have more kids back at school but in a reasonable way, in an appropriate way, which means that there is adequate social distancing for the adults in particular."
The return to classroom teaching will be accompanied by new social distancing measures to protect teachers and students.
This follows the Prime Minister’s video to parents on Wednesday to send their children to school, if they were able to.
