Grammar school floods on Queensland's Sunshine Coast

Monday, June 2, 2008

Forest Glen, Queensland — Overnight rain following rain earlier in the week has caused the grounds at Sunshine Coast Grammar School to flood. The school has been closed and any students who showed up were sent home.

There is the possibility that senior classes will not go ahead tomorrow, as much of the lower floor of the resource center has been flooded.

The school was closed early and staff sent home due to workplace health and safety issues and the lack of accessibility to other parts of the Sunshine Coast.

No major incidents have been reported, although one car was caught in a creek at the school, the driver having not seen the edge of the road due to the creek running quickly over it. It was towed out safely.
