Pupils in New South Wales will return to school for one day a week during term two and full-time from term three – with extra cleaning and temperature checks
Students in New South Wales will gradually return to school with temperature checks in term two.
From May 11, students will be asked to attend school for one day a week with schools implementing a roster system to decide which pupils attend on which day.
This will then build up to two days a week and then three days a week.
The aim is to have all students back on campus every day by the start of term three on 21 July.

‘We hope we’ll be in a position to have students going back to school in a full-time capacity by term three,’ Ms Berejiklian said this morning.
Learning from home will continue on days that students are not at school.
‘Will it be the same as kids going to school under normal circumstances? No, it won’t,’ the Premier said.
Ms Berejiklian said there will be extra hand sanitiser around schools and extra clearing of classrooms and playground equipment.
She also said children could have their temperatures checked if they look sick.
‘Schools will also have capacity for temperature checks where they think it’s appropriate,’ she said.
