Kia ora FBS whānau,
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.
Having considered this decision, our Board of Trustees has decided to open as planned on Tuesday 7th of February (the day after Waitangi day).
Thank you for your ongoing support and encouragement of Flat Bush School
Flat Bush Forever.
