Emergency Mobile Alerts are messages about emergencies sent by authorised emergency agencies to capable mobile phones. The alerts are designed to keep people safe and are broadcast to all capable phones from targeted cell towers. They can be targeted to areas affected by serious hazards and will only be sent when there is a serious threat to life, health or property, and, in some cases, for test purposes.

An advertising campaign will run from 17-24 November on TV, radio and online, along with other communications activity. 

Environment week

On Monday 18th to Friday 22nd of November,week 6,  Dairy Flat school will be having an Environment week where we learn about caring for nature. There will be a garden sale all week at the red line by the hall from 8.15 to 9.00 each morning. At the garden sale we will be selling vegetable seedlings, flowers and succulents. There will also be horse manure and compost for sale.

There will be planting at morning tea after eating, outside Room 9. There will be a charge of $1 if you want to take your plant home. 

All money raised will go towards repairing the school greenhouse.

A donation box will be outside the hall all week for any garden supplies you are willing to donate. Please do not put any broken or damaged items in the donation box as it is not a dump zone. If you have any bigger items to donate please visit the office. 

Thank you,

Ella and Charlotte
