Bushfire closures - Friday

NSW Public Schools

The following schools will be closed on Friday 25 October 2013 due to bushfire danger:

Blue Mountains

  • Ellison Public School
  • Springwood High School


  • Bilpin Public School.

School closures are regularly updated on individual school websites, as well as the NSW Public Schools website.

HSC students are reminded that they may sit their exams at any high school, and that students unable to attend an examination due to a natural disaster are eligible to lodge an Illness/Misadventure appeal to ensure they are not disadvantaged. More information for HSC students affected by bushfires can be found on the Board of Studies website:

Schools are also reminded that for the remainder of the week, it is recommended that students not participate in outdoor school sports as this poses a potential health risk to students, particularly those with asthma or heart conditions.

NSW Health advice is linked to the schools bushfire page.
