Bushfire emergency information

Our school is located in a medium to high-risk bushfire area and may be closed on Catastrophic Fire Ban days. In the event of such closure a notification will be sent via parent communication portal.

It’s important that we’re all prepared for a bushfire emergency. Read the bushfire resources provided below and speak with your children about what will happen if a bushfire occurs at school.

You can also read more at bushfire season preparation advice for families.
