Vermiculite testing program

During the 2023 Term 3 spring school holidays, vermiculite testing took place as part of our regular maintenance programs and to ensure the health and wellbeing of staff and students across the state.

Vermiculite is a textured ceiling finish, also known as popcorn ceilings. Some vermiculite coatings contain asbestos, requiring testing and remediation if asbestos is found to be present.

Independent occupational hygienists were engaged to test samples at the below schools. The rooms are currently in use as the material is undisturbed.

Following testing, the independent occupational hygienist advises whether any action is required.
