More than 70% of all Australian schools have adopted social distancing signage, which aims to limit the amount of physical contact between students and teachers.
Education Minister Adrian Piccoli said schools across Australia are being forced to adopt the “social distance” sign, which was developed by the NSW government to make learning more comfortable for parents and staff.
“Schools are now using social distanced signs and I’m pleased to announce that there will be more,” Mr Piccolisaid.
“The Government of NSW has adopted a number of measures to support school principals to make the most of their school’s space and resources, including increasing the number of social distances.”
I am pleased that social distance signs will be made mandatory in schools across NSW in the coming weeks.
We’re working with schools across the state to ensure that every student in every school gets the best possible experience.
“Mr Piccolises the signs will have a tactile effect on children and teachers and will help ensure pupils are in a position to make a decision in a timely manner.
The sign will also be used at lunchtime in schools, with a note explaining how it will be used.”
Social distancing is a great way for schools to communicate with their children and parents, and to create a better learning environment for all students,” Mr Pics said.
