Emergency Work on our Large Oak Trees

Dear Parents, Caregivers and Wider Community,


As you are aware we have had some issues with our large Oak trees on the Bowen Street side of the school.  Over the holidays the trees sustained damage as a result of a weather bomb, which was found during routine maintenance on the trees.  Yesterday we had one of the leading Arborist in to assess the damage and to give us his recommendations moving forward.

The recommendation is to reduce the Bowen Street Tree by 30-40% to eliminate some of the canopy weight on the trunk, which will help in reducing the risk of this tree failing in further weather events.

We will continue to monitor the trees but it may be the start of further reductions in the future, which may lead to the trees been completely removed. 


We are giving the trees the best possible chance to continue a healthy existence but we do need to monitor the potential risk that trees of this size and age pose.


Emergency work to reduce these trees will begin tomorrow morning (Friday 24th October) around 7.30am.  Parents and caregivers may wish to use the William Street entrances to the school to avoid delays with traffic and the fact that Bowen Street area of the school will be cordoned off during work.


Thank you for considering this information when dropping off and picking up your child(ren) on Friday.


Kind Regards


Hamish Fenemor
