School site still unavailable

Yass High School students won’t be able to return to the school next week as first hoped.

The school site isn’t ready for a return to regular activities.

Instead lessons will be available at:

Year 7: Baptist Church hall in Laidlaw St

Year 8: Yass Public School

Year 9: Yass TAFE            

Year 10: will continue with the ‘Do Good Fridays’ projects, based at the Memorial Hall. The TAFE alternate program will go ahead on Friday.

Year 11: Berinba Public.

Year 6 to 7: orientation planned for Wednesday December 5 will be postponed. Another date will be advised soon.

“Thanks to all parents for your understanding over the past week,” principal Sandra Hiscock said.

“There have been some unexpected bonuses, including a very successful year seven swim school, some great community projects at Valmar and the community gardens, plus further strengthening of connections with our wonderful partner primary schools.”

Parents will be advised as soon as possible when the school site can be re-occupied.
