Although the school has remained open despite losing one-third of their students, principal Anne Kitchin urged parents to keep their children at home until the "extraordinary outbreak" is over.

Believed to be influenza A and B, the Queensland education department said in a statement that the school is doing all they can to combat the outbreak and "will conduct additional hygienic cleaning of school premises over the coming days."
