NSW Education Minister Sarah Mitchell says she wants children back in the classroom “as soon as we can make that happen”.

“I say that very openly and have relayed that on many different occasions, publicly as well,” Ms Mitchell said on Wednesday.

“We will be in a position to tell parents what to expect within the coming weeks – we are working on that, of course, with our stakeholders”.

“I’m very aware of how challenging learning from home is for a lot of families."

Ms Mitchell also said, "we are encouraging all of our teachers to go and get vaccinated."
