  • For the safety of staff, students and our communities, the following campuses will be closed on Friday 31 March 2017: • Lismore • Casino • Murwillumbah and • Kingscliff We will provide updated advice first thing Monday morning about any further responses to weather conditions. At 4.24pm today, the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) updated a Severe Weather Warning for various areas in the North East of NSW - Flood advice regarding the Wilson River and the Tweed River was updated, indicating that both rivers will exceed major flood levels late this afternoon. Flood Evacuation Orders have been issued by the NSW State Emergency Service (SES) for Tweed Heads South, Tweed Heads West, Chinderah, Kingscliff, Fingal Head, Bilambil, South Murwillumbah, Condong, Tumbulgum and Lismore. Whilst we are hopeful our Lismore, Casino, Murwillumbah and Kingscliff Campuses will not be directly inundated, travel around the Richmond and Tweed areas is currently difficult and dangerous. Road closures due to local flooding are occurring and we anticipate more road closures in and around our campus areas tonight and tomorrow. Our TAFE campuses are key community resources and as such, our Kingscliff campus has been established as an Emergency Evacuation Centre. We have been advised there is likely to be a significant number of people evacuated from the areas around the Tweed who may be needing to utilise the Kingscliff campus tomorrow to stay safe. Please continue to monitor the conditions via the Bureau of Meteorology and SES websites, and through the local media, which has been advised about our closures. It is important to follow any advice regarding road closures, including staying off roads or taking any other safety measures. Above all else, it is important you ensure your own personal safety by not travelling where it may be unsafe to do so and following the safety advice provided via the below sites and other media sources. Conditions can be monitored through the following websites: Again, your own personal safety is paramount. Please do not travel when and where it is unsafe to do so. Kind regards and please stay safe.
