After eight weeks of indefinite shutdown amid the coronavirus pandemic, Saint Mary Mackillop Colleges in Wagga has transitioned back to face-to-face classrooms.
In March, the independent Catholic school became the first to send its students home and begin contact-less remote learning.
Throughout the past two weeks, the school has managed to return its school population back to the classroom.
When contacted by The Daily Advertiser, however, the school refused to comment on how many students have returned over the past weeks.
But, it is understood the decision was made in light of the fact Wagga has not detected a single case of COVID-19 since April 3.
In accordance with NSW Health advice as of May 22, all public, private and independent schools in the state have transitioned back to regular school days.
Karen Masson, parent of three sons in years 11, 10 and 8 at Mary Mackillop said the back-to-school day had come as a welcome adjustment as life "eases back to normal".
"Two were very keen to get back, but one was enjoying homeschooling," Ms Masson said.
"It's exam and assessment week for them at the moment, so it's all very much happening."
