Three more children were also taken to the same hospital for treatment: two eight-year-old girls in a stable condition and a nine-year-old girl in a serious condition.

The remaining 17 children and their teacher were treated at the scene by paramedics.

The driver, who was uninjured in the collision, was taken for mandatory testing and charged with two counts of dangerous driving occasioning death and one count of negligent driving occasioning death.

Her license was also suspended.

Following further investigation, NSW Police have additionally charged the widowed mother-of-four with dangerous driving occasioning grievous bodily harm and causing actual bodily harm by misconduct.

It is alleged that the further charges relate to injuries sustained by children who were taken to hospital.

The woman has been granted conditional bail and will face all charges on Wednesday November 29.
