Communications

The Disaster and Emergency Communications Strategy (PDF, 2.9MB) provides a summary of the phases of an event and suggested internal and external stakeholder communications opportunities for schools and regions to consider.

This also provides templates for Principals to use when communicating with parents following bomb threats and armed attack threats on schools.
