Important notice to students and staff: Coronavirus (COVID 19)

At Macquarie Community College (MCC) we are committed to putting our community first. These are the proactive steps we are taking to ensure your safety.

We monitor and act on the official advice of Government

As we have learnt over the past months, the Covid-19 risk management situation changes rapidly.

Our plans for student attendance are based on Covid-19 social distancing and operating restrictions put in place at any given time by the NSW Government or Commonwealth Government agencies.

Macquarie Community College will continue to monitor the situation closely and review advice to ensure we are responding to the situation appropriately.
