The decision was made in response to the “onsite death overnight,” as the school administration seeks to address the situation with the utmost care.
The school’s spokesperson, speaking on behalf of the institution, said that no students were involved in the incident and reassured the public that there was no ongoing threat.
“An area of the school, not accessible to students, is a crime zone, and we await the approval of police before bringing everyone back on site.”
The spokesperson also expressed the school’s commitment to providing support to the affected students and their parents by offering counselling services during this difficult time.
As detectives from the state crime command’s homicide squad, in conjunction with local police, delve into the investigation under the code name Strike Force Trineura, a second crime scene has been established in Vaucluse, an eastern suburb of Sydney.
Authorities are actively exploring potential links between the two scenes, and investigations are currently underway to establish any possible connections.
