On Monday this week, the Secretary for Education took the decision to direct schools and other
education providers in Auckland to close for on-site instruction (learning) because of the weather
emergency and the need to reduce traffic on roads.
This initial direction was until the 7th of February, which is the last day by which schools must start
their term under education regulations.
The Secretary for Education, Iona Holsted, undertook to review the direction to close on a daily
basis, to minimise disruption to schools that can open.
After review today, the Secretary has lifted the Direction to close.
As a result of this decision, we have decided that the school will now open tomorrow, Thursday 2nd
February. There has been no damage to our school and we are ready and excited to have the
children back.

Please contact if you have any questions. Please report absences as
usual via our website or by email.
