Confusion over cancelled GPS sport as Minister confirms it can go ahead

The NSW Sports Minister has contacted GPS over their cancelled sports competition, informing them it can go ahead.

The prestigious GPS schoolboy sporting competitions have been suspended due to tightened coronavirus guidelines for schools.

NSW Health had said sporting competitions that brought together schools from different parts of Sydney would need to be suspended.

But now, NSW Sports Minister Geoff Lee told Ben Fordham GPS schools have been advised sport can go ahead as long as they follow NSW Health guidelines.
