Bushfire At-Risk Register (BARR)

Below is the list of Catholic schools considered as being at high risk of fire danger for the 2020–21 bushfire season. Inclusion on the register means that the school will be pre-emptively closed in the event that the Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) issues a Code Red Fire Danger Rating warning for the weather district in which this school is located. Each school's weather district is indicated in the BoM column below.

A list of likely and actual school closures will be made available on this website and on the Department of Education and Training (DET) website.
