Peregian Springs SS, Coolum SHS closed tomorrow due to bushfire

Published:

Peregian Springs State School and Coolum State High School will be closed tomorrow because of the threat of bushfire, Education Minister Grace Grace announced tonight.

“Due to a large, uncontrolled fire in the area, the Department of Education has made the decision to close these schools,” Ms Grace said.

“The decision to close schools is never taken lightly, but our number one priority remains the safety of students, staff and their families.

“We will continue to liaise with emergency services personnel as the situation progresses, and we will close further schools, if necessary, for the safety of our communities.”

The most up-to-date information on Queensland state school closures can be found at https://closures.det.qld.gov.au/.

Ms Grace said all community members should continue to act with safety first in mind.

“Even if your school remains open, if you’re concerned about travelling to or from school in the current conditions, remember safety must come first,” she said.

“I strongly encourage everybody to tune into their local ABC radio service for updates on bushfires and follow all advice from emergency services in your area.”

Further information about current weather conditions can be found on the Bureau of Meteorology website at www.bom.gov.au and updates on local conditions on QFES social media accounts.
