staff and students at a sydney high school are ordered to self isolate

Staff and students at a Sydney high school have been ordered to self-isolate after a coronavirus outbreak.

A student at Oran Park High School in the south west of Sydney returned a positive test on Friday. 

Only Year 7 and Year 8 students had been at the school, which will be deep cleaned over the weekend. 

NSW recorded five new coronavirus cases on Friday, including one of community transmission, as restrictions ease around open-air concerts and outdoor dining.

Four of the cases reported on Friday are returned overseas travellers in hotel quarantine, while one is linked to an existing cluster at Lakemba in Sydney’s southwest.

NSW Chief Health Officer Kerry Chant said a child and worker at the Great Beginnings childcare centre at Oran Park have also recently tested positive and would be included in Saturday’s figures.

‘I would ask anyone who is at that childcare centre to immediately isolate,’ she said.

‘A number of people would have been advised to isolate but we may be upgrading the advice for some of the casual contact at that childcare centre,

‘Public health will be reaching out to you immediately.’

Dr Chant said anyone who attended the A2Z Medical Centre in Lakemba between September 25 and October 2 should get tested.

Anyone who was at the centre from October 3-10 should get tested, isolate and monitor symptoms, she added.

The new Lakemba case is a household contact of a previous case, taking the cluster to 16.

Up to 500 people are now allowed to attend open-air concerts, as long as they stay seated and remain four metres apart.

Restrictions for outdoor dining venues have also been relaxed, allowing one patron per two square metres, as long as venues use an electronic QR code to record patrons’ contact details.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian flagged further easing of restrictions next week, depending on how case numbers go over the weekend.

princess beatrice wedding unseen photo on fergies thank you note

Proud mother the Duchess of York has treated royal fans to an exclusive glimpse at her daughter Princess Beatrice’s wedding day. 

An unseen black and white image of the bride and her new husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi features on a thank you note sent by Fergie and has been shared to  Instagram by royal fan Sarah Janes.

The note and exclusive picture she received was sent by the Duchess of York  as a thank you for her well wishes on her daughter’s July wedding day. 

Princess Beatrice, 32, tied the knot with Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in Windsor on 17 July 2020 in a small ceremony attended by her immediate family and the Queen, 94,  and Duke of Edinburgh, 99.  

In the picture, the beaming couple are seen holding hands on the grounds of Royal Lodge, with the happy couple sharing smiles as they stroll along.

‘A beautiful reply from the Duchess of York for Beatrice and Edo wedding. Love the photo. Thanks Sarah,’ the fan wrote. 

The note penned by the Duchess of York read: ‘Thank you so much for your amazingly caring and supporting messages for Beatrice and Edo’s future happiness. 

‘It was a glorious day; the sun smiled down on them. We were all delighted to be able to come together and celebrate their love for one another. 

‘Beatrice looked stunning and Edo handsome – their love shone through.

‘We are so happy to welcome Edo into our family and thank him for his love and devotion to Beatrice.

‘Thank you for many years of kindness and loyalty.’   

The Queen’s granddaughter, 32, was due to marry Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, 36, at St James’s Palace on 29 May but plans were postponed due to Covid-19 – and they instead tied the knot in a surprise secret ceremony at Windsor Castle on 17 July with just twenty guests.

The royal has now spoken out about the wedding for the first time as she appeared in a video for the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice and announced the winners of the organisation’s Kids Summer Art Competition 2020.

The video appears to have been filmed at the same time as the royal’s wedding dress was unveiled at Windsor Castle last week.

The Sir Norman Hartnell gown, first worn by the Queen in the 1960s, was loaned to Beatrice by her grandmother for her low-key wedding to Edo.

Her wedding gown will be on display from September 24 until November 22, the Royal Collection Trust announced earlier this month.

Princess Beatrice and Edo enjoyed a slimmed-down wedding at the Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge, Windsor on July 17.

The ceremony details were not made public beforehand and the pair were originally due to marry in the Chapel Royal followed by a reception in the gardens of Buckingham Palace – but their wedding was postponed because of the coronavirus outbreak.

Beatrice’s father the Duke of York walked her down the aisle but he did not feature in the photographs released by Buckingham Palace. The wedding was also attended by The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh.

Princess Beatrice’s latest comments come as the York family celebrate the news that Beatrice’s younger sister Princess Eugenie is expecting her first baby.

The royal, who married husband Jack Brooksbank in October 2018, are expecting the baby in early 2021.

Sharing the news on Instagram last week, Eugenie, 30, wrote: ‘Jack and I are so excited for early 2021….,’ alongside photos of baby slippers and her and Jack smiling.

Her mother Sarah Ferguson shared her excitement, writing: ‘I am so excited by the news that Eugenie and Jack are expecting their first child.

‘Thrilled for them both and in my 60th year cannot wait to be a grandmother. Welcoming a new baby into the York family is going to be a moment of profound joy.’

On her Storytime with Fergie and Friends channel, she read out – appropriately enough – a tale of magic called Nanna Maureen, by Casey Gillespie.

The baby will be the first grandchild for Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, and will be the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh’s ninth great-grandchild.

princess mary of denmark unveils christmas stamp collection

Crown Princess Mary turned heads in a chic pantsuit when she appeared at two separate functions this weekend. 

Denmark’s future queen, 48, unveiled a new postage stamp for the Christmas Seal Foundation to help raise money for children who have been bullied and suffer from mental health issues.

Mary was welcomed by a small group of children, with the annual event downsized to accommodate COVID-19 regulations.

The mother-of-four looked radiant in a new slouchy plum pantsuit, paired with a Cartier bracelet, Hugo Boss clutch and a face mask.

The Princess, who was born in Hobart, Tasmania, beamed as she took off her face mask to address the small crowd and unveil the stamp

The designer of the suit, which she wore loosely with a thin waist belt, is yet to be identified.

Living up to her reputation for recycling designer pieces, the Australian icon paired the look with heels from one of her favourite Italian designers, Gianvito Rossi. 

The Princess, who was born in Hobart, Tasmania, beamed as she took off her COVID-19 face mask to address the small crowd and unveil the stamp. 

She explained this year’s stamp was inspired by the 100th anniversary of the  reunification of Denmark and Southern Jutland.

The Crown Princess is a patron of the Christmas Stamp Foundation, which aims to help about 1,000 children aged between seven and 14 every year as part of Danish yuletide festivities.

Later in the afternoon, Mary arrived in Copenhagen to present an award to companies known for their sustainability and approach to climate and corporate social responsibility.

The Princess has presented the award for the last seven years. 

She arrived at the event in the same outfit as earlier in the day, slipping into a grey coat while she made the trip. 

The purple two piece ensemble is yet to be claimed by a designer, and was paired with white and yellow diamonds and multiple bracelets. 

Two of the bracelets are from her collection and have been staple features in her wardrobe, from Dulong Fine Jewelry.

A third bracelet has been identified as Cartier.   

Since her wedding to Prince Frederik, 52, on May 14, 2004 at Copenhagen Cathedral, Mary has mastered diplomacy and regal decorum with unparalleled skill.

A true People’s Princess, she has worked tirelessly to to prove her commitment to charity, becoming a patron of more than 25 international organisations – all while raising her four children and appearing at a constant rotation of diplomatic events.

Together with Frederik, Mary shares Prince Christian, 15, Princess Isabella, 13, and nine-year-old twins Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine.

Mary’s patronages include the World Health Organisation Regional Office for Europe and the United Nations Population Fund, where she supports their work to promote maternal health in more than 150 developing nations. 

In 2007, the Princess launched The Mary Foundation, a charity focused on stamping out domestic violence, bullying and loneliness.

Each year The Mary Foundation hands out 2,000 rucksacks for children living in temporary shelters with their mothers across Denmark, the Faroe Islands and Greenland.

In November 2014, the Princess accepted the prestigious Bambi Charity Award in Berlin, which recognised her work against domestic violence.

A woman of many talents, Mary looks equally at home promoting Denmark on the world stage, visiting hospitals in Ethiopia, playing soccer in the rain with schoolchildren and participating in muddy military exercises.

In March 2019, the Princess was appointed Captain of the Danish Home Guard under the proud gaze of her mother-in-law, Queen Margrethe.

ex tiger air attendant who had sex with teen at school spotted reporting to sydney police station

Grinning from ear-to-ear at 30,000ft or reclining on a jet engine, Melissa Nosti savoured a life many young women could only dream of.

Travelling the world as a Tiger Air hostess she shared her jet-setting lifestyle in glamourous Instagram snaps from the cabin to a sunkissed beach.

But the now-33-year-old was worlds apart from these carefree days as she trundled into her local Sydney police station as a convicted sex offender.

Nosti crashed to Earth when she was arrested for having sex with a 15-year-old boy in 2010 at school she worked at when she was just 23.

Onlookers said Nosti appeared 'rather distraught' when she made her way to the car after the meeting

Two weeks ago she was sentenced to 18 months’ jail with a six month non-parole period after pleading guilty to her illicit relationship with the teen.

She served eight days in jail before she was let out on parole last week, and reported to police for the first time on Tuesday.

Dressed down in black tracksuit pants and an off-white Nike T-shirt, Nosti, from North Ryde in Sydney, was visibly distressed as she arrived at Eastwood Police Station. 

Nosti paired the a loose-fit off-white crew neck with a denim jacket.

She threw her hair into a loose, low bun at the nape of her neck and appeared distracted by her mobile phone as she made her way into the police station on Tuesday.

The 33-year-old looked comfortable in sneakers and outlandish Homer Simpson socks for the appointment.

The casual get-up was a far cry from pictures Nosti has previously shared, showing her dolled up in her uniform as a flight attendant or posing in bikinis on the beach. 

Onlookers said she appeared ‘rather distraught’ when she made her way to the car after the meeting. 

She spent about an hour inside the police station along with an older man who was equally as casually dressed in a black t-shirt and baseball cap.  

Upon leaving, she was visibly consoled by the man, who wrapped his arm around her while Nosti wiped tears from her eyes. 

She appeared at Burwood Local Court via video link from Silverwater Women’s Prison on Wednesday October 21 after her lawyer lodged a bail appeal.

Her lawyer told the court that Nosti was at ‘low risk’ of reoffending according to a doctor’s report and was successful in gaining employment.  

‘She has had an employment history after this. She was in the airline industry,’ the lawyer said, Daily Telegraph reported.

Magistrate Susan Horan said a victim impact statement from Nosti’s victim was ‘compelling’ before granting her bail.

Nosti must only own one mobile phone as part of her bail conditions, and must hand the password to police when asked.

She is also not able to contact the victim, nor any other person under the age of 16, and must stay at her North Ryde home.
