INFORMATION TO PROPERTIES AROUND THE SCHOOL SITE REGARDING OUR SCHEDULED BUILDING CONDITION ASSESSMENT

 

Building Condition Assessments (BCA) are carried out at all schools at regular intervals as part of the Department of Education’s overall asset management strategy.

In addition to the inspection of building internals, drones will be used for the first time to provide footage of roof condition and coverings, including penetration points, box gutters and safety anchor points.  All of the drone footage will be given to the Department of Finance’s Building Management and Works and drones will only be used out of school hours, before 8:00am and after 4:00pm weekdays, weekends or during school holidays.

Drone operators are required to comply with the necessary insurances and certifications including:

·        Current Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) certification;

·        Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) operator certification.

Please therefore do not be alarmed if you see drones flying over the school period during this period.
