COVID-19 latest information for students and staff

Updated 11 May 2021

Key developments

11 May 2021

  • Sydney Graduation Ceremonies scheduled for 15 May 2021 have been postponed. NSW State Government has extended existing COVID restrictions by one week to expire on Monday 17 May 2021. Given the uncertainty of the current COVID situation in Greater Sydney, the risk posed to students and staff who would be travelling into a restricted area, coupled with the requirement for all attendees to wear masks, we have reluctantly taken the decision to postpone the Sydney Graduation Ceremonies. This is a very difficult decision to make, but it is the right one to ensure everyone’s health and safety. We are currently investigating alternative Sydney Ceremony dates for early 2022 and will make an announcement in due course regarding a future date for the postponed ceremonies.
