In the event of an emergency or traumatic incident our priorities are as follows –
Ensure children are moved to a safe secure location at school, parish hall, church or other venue designated at the time by the principal (staff member in charge) or civil defence personnel.
Children will only be released into the safe custody of a previously designated adult, or an alternative adult caregiver approved by the principal or civil defence/emergency personnel, as needs determine or the situation requires.
A log will be kept of all children who leave the school with an alternative caregiver. Parents will be informed as soon as possible.
Wherever possible communication will be maintained with the school community via the local radio stations or by phone. Information updates will also be provided on the school answer phone and school website when practical and possible.
- Emergency information is updated annually in Term 1.
