Dear Parents and Carers,
COVID 19 Update
Contact tracing has now been completed and NSW Health advice will be communicated to students who are close and casual contacts of confirmed cases, later today. We shall forward that advice to students’ @ education email accounts as soon as it is received this afternoon.
The Dept of Education will provide more formal advice later today. In the meantime, kindly note the following:
– The school is operational tomorrow. We have been advised by the Dept that there is no need to close and deep clean the school because of the enhanced COVID-19 cleaning that has been occurring for some time, the fact that all staff are fully vaccinated, masks are mandatory indoors and many of our students are also vaccinated.
– the HSC will continue as planned at CHS
-All students from Years 7 – 11 ( who are well) should attend school tomorrow unless they are identified by NSW Health as a close or casual contact of a confirmed case (the request for ALL year 7 and Year 10 to self-isolate in last night’s letter was a precautionary interim measure, to allow contact tracing to occur).
I appreciate this is a stressful time for our community.
We would like to confirm to you that a member of our school community has tested positive for COVID- 19. NSW Health have assessed the situation and advised that there is no requirement to cease school operations.
Students in Year 7 and year 10 and their teachers are asked to self-isolate as a precaution while we complete contact tracing.
Students who are sitting HSC examinations are advised that exams will continue at the school on Monday as planned.

We have been advised this afternoon that 3 of our students, who have been in attendance at school this week, up until yesterday and have been identified as close contacts of a confirmed COVID-19 case. Accordingly, they are self-isolating and will not be at school in the immediate future while they await medical clearance.

Seven Music students completed their AMEB Online Video Repertoire Music Exams over the weekend. The students are as follows: Alex McWhirter – Grade 4 Trumpet; Ellah Bowmaker and Megan Hain – Grade 3 Clarinet; Sam Bowman – Grade 2 Saxophone; Riley Fleming – Grade 3 Saxophone; Declan Eshman – Grade 4 Saxophone; Shafin Salim – Grade 4 Piano.
All of these students put a huge amount of work into their preparation and spent many hours rehearsing after school and on weekends. The recording process also involved quite a few hours of work after school hours and these students should be commended for their hard work.
Shafin has lessons with Ms Di Suthons and the rest of the students all have Skype lessons with Mark Walton at school. Mark very generously works with these students during lunch times three times a week through his outreach program and we appreciate his time. All of the students attend their lessons with Mark without fail and very willingly give up their lunch times for their lessons.
A HUGE thank you goes to both teachers for preparing the students for these exams, and also to Miss Lewis who assisted with the rehearsals after school leading up to the recordings.
