Flood recovery update

The NSW Department of Education is coordinating an emergency response effort that is unprecedented in terms of scale and impact. A large number of schools in the Northern Rivers region have damage to either the entire site or some buildings and facilities.

The local School Infrastructure NSW office has inspected all schools in flood-impacted areas and has removed rubbish, cleaned and secured affected sites to ensure they are safe. Teams are repairing and remediating schools that were damaged during the foods and assessing works needed to rebuild the worst affected schools.

Mullumbimby High School suffered a significant amount of damage as a result of the flood events with a large number of buildings being inundated with flood waters.

Regular communication relating to the progress of works at Mullumbimby High School will continue to be updated to this page in the ‘Flood Recovery Updates’ section below.
