School procedures for the bushfire season
Fire Danger Ratings and warnings are used in Victoria to provide clear direction on the safest options for preserving life.
A small number of schools on the DET Bushfire At-Risk Register (BARR), including our own, will closed on all Extreme Fire Danger Rating days.
Once we are advised of an Extreme Fire Danger Rating day, we will provide you with advice before the end of the school day.
It is important to note that:
On these Extreme Fire Danger Rating days, families are encouraged to enact their Bushfire Survival Plan – on such days children should never be left at home alone or unsupervised or in the care of older children.
As part of preparing our school for potential hazards such as fire, we have updated and completed our Emergency Management Plan. Maintenance works has been carried out to de-risk the school.
