Dear Parents and Caregivers,
Please be advised of the information written below by Mr Jack Ryan, CEO Seventh-day Adventist Schools South Queensland. We have been asked to share this important information with our College community.
Due to the impact of today’s severe weather event, and the possibility of further severe weather, the decision has been made to close all Schools and Early Learning Centres owned and operated by Seventh-day Adventist Schools (South Queensland) Limited tomorrow, Friday 31 March. These Schools and Centres are:

  • Brisbane Adventist College (including OSHClub)
  • Brisbane Adventist College Early Learning Centre
  • Coral Coast Christian School
  • Darling Downs Christian School
  • Gold Coast Christian School
  • Ipswich Adventist School
  • Noosa Christian College
  • Northpine Christian College
  • Northpine Christian College Early Learning Centre

Given tomorrow is the last day of term, we hope this will not be too inconvenient for parents. Even if the weather clears up overnight, the risk from possible road closures and flooding will still pose a risk for travel to and from school, especially for our buses and for those students who walk or bike to school. We are also unaware at this time of the extent of any flooding in classrooms and School/Centre environs, but this would obviously have a negative impact irrespective of whether the rain clears tomorrow. 
We trust this early notice provides parents with time to make suitable plans for your children tomorrow, and while we sincerely regret any inconvenience this cancellation may cause we trust you understand and support our intent to prioritise safety at this time.
Jack Ryan
CEO Seventh-day Adventist Schools South Queensland Limited.

We would like to wish all of our school community a very happy term end break.  If you have the opportunity to get away, safe travels!  With Easter just around the corner, we trust that this reminds us again of the amazing hope we have in a God that conquered death and seeks to reunite with us on a personal level. 
Kind regards
BAC Administration Team
Leanne Entermann, Damon Quick and Bruce Dever
