fire update

Dear Parents and Carers

Bushfires are having a devastating impact on our State.

Both Port Macquarie and Westport Campuses are currently operational, however there will be minimal supervision once again tomorrow and classes will not operate as usual.

At present we have an increase in smoke at our campuses and the air-quality has deteriorated. We ask parents and carers to make an informed decision as to whether they send their child/ren to school based on your own situation.

The safety and wellbeing of our students and staff is our top priority. If and when the situation changes we will communicate this as soon as we know.

During this time, please take the greatest care and precaution for your family.

Thank you for your understanding and if any information comes to hand we will update immediately via SMS.

Kindest Regards


Meaghan Cook and Ian Ross
