🌟Yesterday, on a day of national significance, our school community shone brightly with the dedication and commitment of our students. Student leaders Kohan and Ethan exemplified honor and respect by attending the Geraldton ANZAC Day service to lay a wreath in remembrance of our fallen heroes. Their presence at this annual event reflects the values we instill in our students – values of learning from the past, respect, and responsibility through service.

Later, our school choir and didgeridoo group, led by our legendary music teacher Mr Stewart, showcased their talent at the opening of the Shore Leave Festival. Their awesome performance not only entertained but also celebrated the diversity and vibrancy of our school community.

We are immensely proud of Kohan, Ethan, and all our talented performers for their commitment to representing our school on a public holiday. Thank you to the parents and staff who supported them in their endeavors.

No travelling North from the 440 Roadhouse. The fire is moving North West. Please take care everyone.

PLEASE NOTE this Warning has been updated. For the latest information visit www.emergency.wa.gov.au
πŸ”₯ A bushfire EMERGENCY WARNING is current for people west of Dillistone Road and Bella Vista Road to the coastline, between Wells Road and the mouth of Oakajee River in the south to Oakabella Creek, Yarra Road, Starling Road and Bunter Way in the north in parts of HOWATHARRA, OAKAJEE, WHITE PEAK and BOWES in the SHIRES OF CHAPMAN VALLEY and NORTHAMPTON..πŸ”₯

Update time: 11:39 PM, 10 December 2023.

⚠ You are in danger and need to act immediately to survive. There is a threat to lives and homes.
⚠ Homes in Nanson-Howatharra Road, Olsen Road, Wells Road, North West Coastal Highway and Coronation Beach Road are under threat by fire now.
⚠ The fire started near the intersection of NANSON-HOWATHARRA RD and BELLA VISTA RD in HOWATHARRA.

❗ WHAT TO DO: ❗

πŸ“ For people on both sides of North West Coastal Highway south of Coronation Beach Road and Nanson Howatharra Road from Dillistone Road to the coastline and north of Wells Road and the mouth of Oakajee River:
- It’s too late to leave, leaving now will put your life in danger.
- You need to shelter in your home in a room away from the fire front and make sure you can easily escape.
- You must shelter before the fire arrives, as the extreme heat will kill you well before the flames reach you.
- Close all doors and windows and turn off evaporative air conditioners, but keep water running through the system if possible.
- Choose a room with two exits and water such as a kitchen or laundry.
- If your home catches on fire and the conditions inside become unbearable, you need to get out and go to an area that has already been burnt.
- Protect yourself by wearing long sleeves and trousers, made from cotton or wool, and strong leather boots.

πŸ“ For people north of Coronation Beach road and south of Yarra Road, including parts of Starling Road between North West Coastal Highway and the coastline and for people bound by North West Coastal Highway, Nanson-Howatharra Road, Bella Vista Road and Bunter Way:
- If the way is clear, leave now for a safer place.
- Do not wait and see, leaving at the last minute could put your life in danger.
- Close all doors and windows and turn off evaporative air conditioners, but keep water running through the system if possible.
- If you cannot leave, you need to get ready to shelter in your home.
- Go to a room in your home away from the fire front and make sure you can easily escape.

⚠ There is a possible threat to lives and homes as a fire is approaching in the area and conditions are changing.

❗ WHAT TO DO: ❗

- If you are not prepared or you plan to leave, leave now if the way is clear.
- If you are well prepared and plan to actively defend your home, make final preparations now.

- Keep doors and windows closed and turn off evaporative air conditioners, but keep water running through the system if possible.
- If you are not at home, do not try to return as conditions in the area could be very dangerous.
