Sunshine Coast Grammar turns to Facebook as power out

A SUNSHINE Coast school has turned to social networking to communicate with parents after being left  without power today.

A power outage from the weekend storm has left the school with limited means of communication, with phones and its website currently not working.

Marketing and communications manager Megan Meineke said if power still wasn't restored by tonight, the school may have to look at closing for another day.

"All of the parents have been advised if power is turned back on, we'll go back to school tomorrow," she said.

"We've been in contact with Energex all day.

"We've had indications power would be on this morning, but we've still had no luck."

Ms Meineke said Sunshine Coast Grammar School families were best to keep updated via the school's Facebook page until the website and phones were up and running again.
