Year 11 and 12 MAGS students can go back to school thanks to exemptions

By Alex Gretgrix

STUDENTS from outside the Echuca-Moama "border bubble" will now be able to get exemptions that will allow them to go back to face-to-face learning.

Moama Anglican Grammar principal Carmel Spry confirmed the news Thursday afternoon.

“We had confirmation from NSW Health that Years 11 and 12 who live outside the border zone can continue to attend school, which is fantastic news. This is a great relief to the students, families and staff,” she said.

While there is no more information about how these exemptions will work, the school is working to get information to families as soon as possible.

“We continue to be in almost hourly contact with the Association of Independent Schools NSW, NSW Health, local MPs, government representatives and politicians,” she said.

“We are working tirelessly to hopefully gain some traction to address this challenging situation so that all our students can continue with face-to-face learning.”
