Emergencies

Cyclone Emergency

Outside School Hours

In the event of a Cyclone Watch or Warning please stay tuned to the local media. The Department Coordinator will make decisions regarding the closure of schools on advice from the NT Counter Diaster Council. Any decision regarding the closure of schools will be broadcast over local media. In the event that schools are closed please keep your children at home. Students should not return to school until the warning is cancelled.

During School Hours

If an emergency should arise while students are at school the following procedure will operate:

  1. Any decision to close schools will be made by a Department Coordinator and communicated directly to the school. The local media will broadcast this information at which time you will be directed to collect your child/children from school.
  2. If you are unable to collect your child, please contact the school URGENTLY. You may arrange for a responsible adult to do so. Any child not collected two hours after school closure will be taken to PALMERSTON SENIOR COLLEGE, and placed into the care of the centre coordinator.
  3. If your child is attending Out of School Hours Care/Vacation Care he/she should be collected immediately from the centre.  Any child not collected  will be taken to PALMERSTON SENIOR COLLEGE, and placed into the care of the centre coordinator.
  4. Children are not to return to school until the warning is cancelled. Listen to the advice from the local media.

Where the terms Cyclone Watch and Cyclone Warning are used, they refer to the announcement issued by the Darwin Cyclone Watch Centre and broadcast by the ABC.
