TWO SCHOOLS TO CLOSE ON WEDNESDAY DUE TO BUSHFIRE DANGER

NSW Department of Education < 1 mins read

 

Two schools with elevated bushfire risk in northern NSW will be temporarily closed on Wednesday, November 1, 2023 due to fire activity in the area. The decision was made with information provided by 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 on Wednesday, 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 our school communities as soon as we receive advice from the State Emergency Operations Centre and the NSW Rural Fire Service. 

 

It is important for parents and carers to know that schools do not offer minimal supervision when schools are temporarily closed due to bushfire threat.  

 

The temporarily closed schools are: 

  • Jennings Public School
  • Nymboida Public School
