National Day of Mourning – Public Holiday

Thursday 22 September will be a one-off national public holiday to mark the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

This means schools, preschools and OSHC services will be closed, and any events, including camps and excursions, should be rescheduled or where this is impractical, cancelled.

We acknowledge this may cause some inconvenience and thank you for your flexibility.

Schools and preschools will remain open and operating as usual outside of this day.

The National Day of Mourning coincides with the National Memorial Service in Australia where one minute’s silence will be observed at 11.00am.
