ACTING PRINCIPAL JUSTINE SMYTH OFFICE– JANICE BRINSMEAD Tuesday 12th August, 2014 Newsletter No. 24 NOTES FROM THE PRINCIPAL ASBESTOS AUDIT AND SIGNAGE. As part of the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development’s Health and Safety Management Plan, new labelling will be installed at our school. The labels remind people to contact school reception prior to undertaking any works at the school, to ensure they have up-todate information from the school’s asbestos register. Asbestos - which was used extensively in building materials in the past but is now banned - is considered safe unless damaged or in poor condition. The new labels form part of a comprehensive program to ensure Victorian government schools remain safe. Children’s safety is our number one priority. That is why we are taking this extra step as a precaution.
