NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet has announced that the state’s school reopening date has been brought forward to October 25th.
It comes as the Perrottet government announced at a media conference on Thursday a few amendments to the freedoms at the 70 per cent reopening date.
“We are bringing forward all schools to return by October 25,” Mr Perrottet said.
“So stage one will be October 18 and we’ll be moving the period from November into October 25.
“So all school children will return to school by October 25.
“That’s great for kids. It’s a major relief for parents and their sanity and I think this is an important decision today and I want to thank all the teachers who are are there getting vaccinated to ensure that we can open our schools as safely as possible.”
