Update: 2 February

On Monday this week, the Secretary for Education took the decision to direct schools and other education providers in Auckland to close for onsite instruction (learning) until Tuesday 7 February because of the weather emergency and the need to reduce traffic on roads. After their review on Wednesday 1 February, the Secretary has lifted this direction.

After consideration, the Board has decided to delay opening until Friday 3 February due to the late notice received. This extra day will allow students, whānau and staff to finalise childcare arrangements and uniform requirements for example.

Please contact admin@bdsc.school.nz if you have any questions or if there is anything you need us to know about before school starts.

PRESIDING BOARD MEMBER
