We would like to thank all our whānau who attended our Parent-Student-Teacher interviews yesterday. Once we have provided the necessary support for students and staff we will be holding a Whānau hui. As this is a sensitive matter and we do not want to inadvertently jeopardise any police investigations or court proceedings we are unable to comment on the incident.
What we can say is that we are working closely with the Police and Ministry of Education and thank them for their support of the school. We can also confirm that we have received a lot of whānau and community support and (contrary to some reports) have not had any staff resignations. All students and staff have been offered support and counselling and we have put in place additional safety measures (including security). At the same time our staff are working very hard to ensure that there are no ongoing distractions from our core business of educating our students, particularly at this busy time of year for learning and assessment. Senior Officer Peter Robson of the Kerikeri Police is dealing with any queries or information regarding the ongoing investigation.
