Dear families and friends of the EEPS community,
We hold Evacuation Drills and to date our students and staff have a wonderful record of rapid and orderly response. Each term we hold either announced or unannounced Evacuation Drill and hope to meet or better our ability to assemble in 5 minutes.
Please read the following advice which is of importance for the Bush Fire Season:
On CODE RED days EEPS is not closed, we do emphasise families should enact their Bush fire plan. In the event of an emergency, children at EEPS are practiced in moving to the designated safest area at school.
The key message is preparation. Each year our term 4 curriculum includes a mini bush fire safety unit. We include this link which has useful information http://www.cfa.vic.gov.au/plan-prepare/your-bush re-plan/
