The NSW Primary Schools and Combined High Schools Sports Association executive, in conjunction with the NSW Department of Education, made the difficult decision to suspend the representative school sport program for 2020 this includes Sydney North activities. A number of factors were taken into account when deciding to suspend the program: the ongoing uncertainty of the consequences to daily life of the COVID-19 pandemic; the associated health risks for participants, including students, teachers, officials, family members and friends who may have wished to attend the events; the timeframes to select teams and the logistics of conducting the championships in an uncertain environment.

It is our intention to commence the representative school sport pathway at the beginning of the 2021 school year, when all schools, students and families can participate in a safe environment.
