Dear parents and carers
Today the school received a bomb threat written as a message on a door in the school toilet block. We were unable to determine whether there was any credibility to the threat, but of course our priority is always the safety, security and wellbeing of the school community. With this in mind, we immediately contacted the police.
Police advised that, as a precaution, the school initiative its emergency evacuation procedures. This process has already commenced and is proceeding in a calm and orderly way. The St Madeleine’s school community has also been advised and have also enacted its emergency evacuation plan.
I want to make clear that all students and staff are safe and well. While there is nothing to suggest the message is a real one, the safety of our community will always be paramount.
I will provide you follow-up communication this afternoon.
