·1-min read

Students in NSW will head back to the classroom full-time in just one week after being forced into online learning amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The state government made the decision on Monday that all classes would resume full-time on May 25.

Students will return to traditional classroom settings with face-to-face teaching, however large gatherings such as assemblies and school sport activities will not resume as normal just yet.

The government has made the decision after the success of part-time classes that began last week.

A delivery of 550,000 health and safety items was dispatched to NSW schools last week, Nine News reports.

In a bid to minimise the chance of a coronavirus outbreak, more than 40,000 bottles of hand sanitiser, 20,000 bars of soap and 20,000 toilet rolls have been delivered to schools in the state.

Temperature checking hand guns will also reportedly be used.

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian is expected to confirm the start date tomorrow.
