On Tuesday the NSW Premier and the Minister for Education announced students would return to school from Monday.

"The Premier and the Education Minister together announced earlier today that next week we will see the full return to school for kids right across NSW," Ms Cooke said.

"For the 79 schools in the Cootamundra electorate this I think will be overwhelmingly good news received by these communities.

"I'd like to take this opportunity to thank our principals, our teachers, our support staff in our schools, the broader school community and of course our parents who have worked very, very hard to make sure that our school kids continue to learn from home and as they continue to transition back to school that there is minimal disruption to their learning and education and that's really, really important."
