Fire Warning - Lake Innes and Lake Cathie

rfs-logo-main.png
As you will be aware, there are a number of fires around the Port Macquarie region that have created emergency situations this week.
We ask that you keep our school community and wider region in your thoughts and prayers as our amazing emergency services support people to stay safe and protect their homes.
 
Today’s movement of fires from the Crestwood area to Lake Cathie and Lake Innes has affected some of our school families and staff, with some evacuated for their safety. We are pleased to say all are safe and well currently and we are grateful for those working through the night to keep it that way.
 
If you are concerned please make use of the local updates through the RFS site:
 
 
Please note that there are no changes to our school operating and we will be at school as usual. There may be some staff and families affected so may not make it in tomorrow due to conditions but we will be able to ensure all children are in their regular routines.
 
Thank you for your care and support.
