How about children go to school, listen, learn and somehow get a good work ethic.
Any excuse for teachers to have a day off! Show me the photos of these extreme floods that somehow closed these schools

Watch the news, it’s not rocket science.
Various roads are closed due to flooding, properties, shops and other areas all over the Coast down to Tweed have been affected. If it has been deemed unsafe for children to attend schools then a few days off to keep everyone safe isn’t going to kill their learning.

You’re a ###, Murray.
Road closures and weather reports aren’t enough proof for you?

don’t be a moron, we had to collect our little ones from Pimpama state school the oval and roads leading to school in some places were not passable , I suppose you would be the one to drive into flooded creek and get swept away then expect somone to rescue you

I know a lot of people who may get flooded out of home if they leave to go to school. It isn’t that hard to find pictures or videos of the floods. My school is not on this list but it is closed and yesterday when we had to evacuate a small creek that crosses under the road was nearly going over the road. That is the only way in or out unless you want to go for a very long drive. There were also big puddles out the front of most classrooms.

Is this just for today or until the rain stops?
