UPDATE : FRIDAY 9 SEPTEMBER (10am)

The Year 13s will be staying another night on Mt Ruapehu as the roads are all closed.  The situation is being carefully monitored and will be reassessed as soon as possible.  They are happy and healthy and there is plenty of food.  They are enjoying the exceptional levels of snow and doing modified assessments to take advantage of it.

THURSDAY 8 SEPTEMBER (7pm)

We have had further update that the Year 13s at Tukino lodge and ski field are warm, dry and well fed and enjoying their adventure. There is a 50/50 chance they’ll be home as scheduled tomorrow. Watch this space and the school Facebook and Twitter for further updates.
