Kia ora koutou
Thank you to everyone for your cooperation today in collecting your child/ren when we had to close the school. We apologise for the disruption and stress this may have caused.
At 1.19pm we received an email stating that a bomb was at the school.
At 1.20pm we received another email stating that the bomb would go off in two hours.
We called the police as soon as we received the emails and we evacuated everyone to the field. The police searched the grounds and gave us the all clear.
We then made the decision to close the school due to the nature of the second email.
I would like to congratulate everyone with the calm manner in which everything was dealt with. I would like to express my gratitude and thanks to our staff members for assisting throughout the day.
School will be open tomorrow (Tuesday 19 December).
