Teaching staff to be present in flood-affected schools in the bush

Flood-affected communities across NSW will have staffing numbers at their local schools locked in for the remainder of the year.  

The NSW Government is continuing to support severely flood-impacted communities by making 33 schools in the Northern Rivers region eligible for Disaster Supplementation for the remainder of 2022.  

Minister for Education and Early Learning Sarah Mitchell said that this decision means that any temporary enrolment fluctuations in these schools would not affect their teaching and support staffing entitlements.

“Our experience with recent natural disasters has shown how important it is to provide students, staff and their families with stability throughout these difficult times,” Ms Mitchell said. 

“As well as supporting our regional staff and students, keeping school entitlements steady will keep our regional communities strong with families and jobs staying in the bush.

“Students need consistent support from principals, teachers and school staff who they know and trust.” 

The Disaster Supplementation Program was originally launched in 2018 to prevent any fluctuation in school enrolments from leading to a reduction in school staff in drought-impacted communities.
