Mannering Park Public School on snake alert

Mannering Park Public School is on snake alert following several snake sightings around the school grounds.

Principal, Mitchell Welham, took to the school’s Facebook page to inform the school community of the news.

“The school has had a number of reported snake sightings in and around our school grounds recently.

“To ensure that we have student, staff and community safety, we have an active and updated snake policy, updated first aid supplies, and in Term 4 last year, provided all students with a snake awareness talk.

“In the coming days, I will arrange for professional snake handlers to come on site to conduct a full survey of potential snake nesting and habitat spots.

“We will continue to monitor the situation.

“Please be assured that all staff have current and updated First Aid training,” Welham said.
