BTC Cyclone Debbie update 5

7:00am, 29 March 2017

Good Morning Famlies

Cyclone Debbie was downgraded to a tropical low overnight. All warnings for the Charters Towers region have been cancelled. The threat to Charters Towers and to students and staff at Blackheath & Thornburgh College has passed.

I am glad to say that all our boarders are safe and that there has been no damage at the school. The weather forecast for Charters Towers today is for winds up to 20 knots and about 8mls of rain.

With all warnings cancelled and the weather reasonable, the school WILL open today.

Nigel Fairbairn,
