Ex Cyclone Gita caused damage all over the place – including water pipes in the New Plymouth area, leading to contamination and water shortages.

Following advice from the New Plymouth District Council, the Board of Trustees made the decision to close the school.

School closed at 12.30pm on Wednesday 21 February.

The school remained closed for Thursday 22 February and Friday 23 February.

A decision about opening the school on Monday 26 February will be made once we have more information.
