The NSW Department of Education Term 3 Learning Guidelines states that school sporting activities, including competitions aligned with current health advice are permitted to take place from the beginning of Term 3.

In accordance with this advice, Cronulla Zone PSSA inter-school sport is scheduled to recommence on Friday 14 August 2020. Please be aware that the guidelines also clearly state that non-essential adults are still not permitted on school grounds or at school events. We kindly ask that all parents, grandparents and carers (i.e. all spectators) do not attend PSSA matches at any of the venues until such time as this advice changes. School staff will be instructed to cease any inter-school game should it become necessary due to unauthorised attendance.

We thank all members of Cronulla Zone PSSA sporting community for their ongoing support and look forward to welcoming back family spectators at some stage in the future.

Rugby League is offered to students in years 3-6 as a sport during Term 2 PSSA.
