Students near the Central West NSW town of Forbes have witness a school drop-off like no other this week after RFS helicopters transported their teachers across floodwaters to their school gates.
In order to attend classes at Bedgerabong Public School on Monday, three teachers had to cross the dangerously high floodwaters.
So, to avoid cancelling classtime, the teachers were given the aid of the helicopters.
The town remains on flood alert as the Lachlan River continues to overflow, blocking streets and major arterial roads.
With more rain forecast for the end of this week, it's unlikely the floodwaters will be subsiding any time soon.
The SES is advising that the community could be cut off from its neighbours for the next five weeks.
But for now, with the help of the SES and RFS, the smalltown students have not missed any face-to-face classes.
