A spokesman for the New South Wales Department of Education said, “The total number of students at South Coogee Public School will be four with a positive test.”

“Based on additional cases, and because there are many interactions between groups of children of different ages, NSW Health has updated its advice.

“Currently, all students are in close contact and must be tested and self-quarantined for 14 days, regardless of whether the test result is negative or not.”

“Our priority is always the safety and well-being of our staff and students.”

A spokesman said the school is working closely with NSW Health and the department.

Of the 112 locally acquired cases recorded since June 16th, when drivers transporting international crew members were reported, 110 are related to Bondi clusters and two are under investigation.

One of them is a third-year student at St. Charles Catholic Elementary School in Waverly in the Bondi area.
