Dear Parents and Guardians
This morning, a number of students made a report of an unattended backpack on the grass verge of our school. The backpack had been dropped there from a moving vehicle. We took precautionary measures which included relocating our students from the part of the school closest to that area and informing the local police.
The police were soon at the school and the backpack was identified by them as harmless. The students who were relocated from the building closest to the area were out of class for approximately 40 minutes.
As I am sure you will appreciate, we do not compromise around the safety of our students. Their wellbeing is always our highest priority and with this mind we will always act on the side of caution.
Your ongoing support is always appreciated.
