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

New options to keep assistant agents in the property services industry

1 March 2024 The NSW Government has offered more than 14,000 assistant agents the chance to apply for an extension of their certificates of registration. These agents, in real estate, stock and station and strata management, will get another 12 months to complete their training and continue working while they finish their qualifications, ensuring residential tenants and landlords continue to receive vital property management services. In March 2020, substantial reforms were introduced to the Property and Stock Agents Act 2002, placing almost 22,500 assistant agents on a four-year certificate due to expire on 22 March 2024.
