Excellent thoughts Michele! Also a year 12 mum and while I think there are a number of young people really struggling (who would be a recent or soon-to-be university grad if given the choice???) it seems unusually cruel given the actual COVID-19 current transmission rates in NSW to deny these rites of passage to school leavers. These students have been sharing classrooms, bathrooms, art studios and common rooms for months now. We have been sharing homes with them. And for 99% of schools? Nothing. No infections. No issues.
