Eglinton Public School students returned back to classes on Monday with blue and yellow balloons and a welcome sign greeting them as they walked through the gates.
It was the first day in almost two months that any public schools have been operating normally, after the NSW Government had school's operating at a limited capacity to help prevent the spread of coronavirus.
On Monday, almost all of Eglinton's 470 students were in attendance and principal Vicki O'Rourke said it's exciting for students to back in classes.
"It's a bit of relief to be back in a normal routine," she said.
"The students have been excited and I don't think many stayed at home."
Ms O'Rourke said teachers have put in a massive effort during the coronavirus pandemic.
"The community has really come together, with teachers doing a complete pivot to online learning, while parents have taken up the challenge to have children at home learning.
"Whatever may come in the future, whether there's a second wave, we'll be prepared to make the right changes."
While school is back, there are still some restrictions such as no excursions and no debating and sport with other school communities.
