Students at Queanbeyan East Public School were given an early mark today, 22 June, when a burst water main left the facility without water.

Water supply to parts of Queanbeyan East was disrupted from 10:45 am but Queanbeyan-Palerang Regional Council staff acted promptly to repair the water main break on Thurralilly Street and Bungendore Road by 12:45 pm.

At that point, parents of the 250-odd students at Queanbeyan East Public School had already been informed to pick up their children.

The initial message, “QEPS is now non-operational, we are asking parents to collect children as a matter of urgency. Please come to the office to sign your child out”, caused ripples of concern on social media but it was soon clarified.
