Bushfire support 

We begin 2020 with the devastating losses of life, environment, wildlife and property following the recent bushfires.
The bushfires will continue to affect students, teachers, leaders, support workers and communities for some time into the future.
We stand in solidarity with our education communities across the state and are actively working with the Education Department to ensure adequate support is provided to those impacted by the bushfires.
