    Ice block bricks wrapped in tea towels for their food but once that is gone they can use it to keep themselves cool. If it where me and the heat was continuous I’d probably pick them up at lunch and come home I mean it’s the end of year so they aren’t going to miss much

    Maybe it’s a north Qld thing, and of course I was generally speaking (individual schools may have fridges) but I haven’t personally heard of any here in south east Qld.

    But yay for Mackay and surrounds, that’s awesome!

    Reading this thread makes me so bloody thankful I live in a cooler climate!! I’d hate to think of my kids struggling through QLD heat with no air con at school. The place I live in gets down to minus 8 in the winter overnight and reaching double figure during the day is unusual. It would be like expecting our kids to freeze in classrooms during winter. Not acceptable at all!

    Yes completely agree @Chippa but many parents have fought for aircon in the past and its definitely not going to happen any time soon. There is a brand new Catholic school being built in the area too with no aircon. Some state schools have it in the area though.

    I just can’t understand that! The heat is relentless in summer and why are they expecting young children to just deal with it? Not right at all

    I agree. One of the factors I was looking at when choosing a school was whether it was air conditioned. I can’t concentrate when I’m hot and don’t want to put my kids in that situation if I can help it. As luck would have it, the school we wanted has air conditioning.

    Twice at high school, temps were ~40c the school principal decided to suspend classes for the day, if we couldn't be picked up or get home easily we were sent to the aircon areas of the school until normal home time.

    I’m in Qld and there are no fridges for our school and there school bags are kept outside along with their drink bottles which is ridiculous. They have recently built a a block of new classroom but they have no aircon.

    I'm in Nth Qld and our schools have fridges and aircons. Their lunch would be disgusting by lunchtime up here without fridges! I would also pick them up around midday if they had no aircons especially for the last week or two of school....it got up to 42deg here last week
