Dear Parents/Caregivers,


The Sutherland school sporting zone, in communication with all participating schools, has made the decision to postpone the upcoming PSSA Sport season. The safety of all participating students and staff is the priority of the zone and following a review of the current COVID-19 situation, it is no longer deemed as suitable to proceed with the season at this time.


The Department’s new guideline now states - The number of participants in attendance at interschool sport and physical activities must be limited to 100 people per venue including staff. The mixing of students from different schools when not participating is not permitted.


The Sutherland Zone PSSA would like to thank all parents and carers across all participating schools for your understanding during these unprecedented times. The situation will be closely monitored during Term 3 to allow us to make a decision about the sporting opportunities that we may be in a position to offer in Term 4. 



Glen Hines

Sutherland PSSA President

Primary Sport Organisers,


Earlier in the week the Board of School Sport Australia decided that due to the COVID-19 outbreak and subsequent restriction on school sport programs, all 2020 School Sport Australia Championships for the rest of the year are cancelled.
