Dear parents and caregivers
I am writing to inform you that we have closed the school today, Friday, 30 October, following the identification of potential asbestos on the school site.
The Ministry of Education has confirmed to me this morning that Worksafe New Zealand (the independent safety regulator) has been notified and will work closely with the Ministry, to determine a process for the safe removal of affected material.
The health and safety of our staff and students is of paramount importance and we appreciate your support during this time.
We will provide a further update as soon as we have more information this afternoon.
Please look at the school website for further updates.
