“This is just a precautionary measure while the police are on site and are handling the email.
“There is no need to worry, your children are safe and cared for. If you want to pick them up, you can do so at the Patrician Brothers College, but you don’t have to and you don’t have to hurry.’
A few hours after the first report, the parents received an update from the director.
Ms. Vella thanked the parents who picked up their children from the university and confirmed that the students were safe with their teachers.
Parents were told that the children would be taken back to the school grounds and after school care would continue as usual.
Daily Mail Australia has contacted NSW Police and Sydney Catholic Schools in relation to the incident.
Our Lady of the Rosary is a primary school in Sydney’s Western Suburbs for pupils aged 5 to 12 years old.
