Dear Parents & Carers,

Potential School Closure Tuesday 12 November 2019 – Catastrophic Fire Danger

The NSW Rural Fire Service has announced it is likely that a catastrophic fire danger rating will be issued for Tuesday 12 November 2019. Given the school’s proximity to bushland, Mater Maria Catholic College is considered to be in a high-risk area which triggers the closure of the school as a safety precaution.

Should this occur the school will be closed for all students, staff and visitors on Tuesday 12 November 2019. We ask that parents and carers start organising alternate supervision for their children on this day.

Further correspondence confirming the closure of the school will be sent to you via email and our website will have updated information.

At this time, our hearts turn to the people across our country who are grieving at the loss of family members and homes due to the current fires. Please keep these people and the wonderful members of the NSW Rural Fire Service, in your prayers.

We thank you for your cooperation.

Yours sincerely
Marc Reicher
Mater Maria Catholic College
