SIX CENTRAL WEST SCHOOLS CLOSE DUE TO EXTREME FIRE DANGER
Schools with elevated bushfire risk in the central West will be temporarily closed on Thursday 12 October 2023 due to extreme fire danger ratings being declared. The decision was made in consultation with the NSW Rural Fire Service.
The decision to temporarily close schools is not one that is made lightly. It is always done with the safety and wellbeing of our staff and students in mind.
Although the schools are temporarily closed tomorrow, students will be provided with learning from home resources.
We encourage parents and carers to always follow the advice of Police and Emergency Services during periods of heightened bushfire risk.
We will continue to update impacted schools and their communities on Thursday 12 October.
The temporarily closed schools are:
Warrumbungle National Park Environmental Education Centre
Tooraweenah Public School
Quambone Public School
Marra Creek Public School
Hermidale Public School
Girilambone Public School
