Education Minister ‘gone missing’ over ‘ridiculous’ rule

Music teachers are slamming the NSW government for failing to address the banning of face-to-face music lessons.

Playing the flute or saxophone in school has been deemed unsafe under public health orders, despite community wind bands being permitted to continue.

Roundtable of Instrumental, Vocal and Music Education Organisations (RIVMEO) facilitator Stephen O’Doherty told Deborah Knight the inconsistency makes the health advice behind the rules unclear.

“I’m so disappointed in the Education Minister because she has simply not responded to any of our correspondence.

“I don’t understand why she’s gone missing.”

RIVMEO is pushing for outdoor, or well-ventilated indoor, music classes to be held.
