Hoax phone calls to Victorian schools

​Dear parent/carer

I am writing to reassure you in light of the recent hoax threatening phone calls to Victorian schools in the last few days.

Our school has not received such a call but I wanted to inform you that, like all schools, we have an Emergency Management Plan (EMP) in place for situations like this and we practise it throughout the year. The EMP is reviewed periodically by School Council and staff.

Those schools which did receive a threatening call enacted their EMPs and they worked well.

Before school this morning (Wednesday 3rd February), Moriac staff met and went over our Bomb Threat evacuation procedures, which are already part of our EMP. Any such call to this school will be taken extremely seriously.

The safety and wellbeing of our students is always our top priority.

If you have any questions, please contact me.

Regards

Steve Durkin

Principal
