Well we are still experiencing a significant number of aftershocks. These are causing a lot of stress for families especially given the size of the shocks and the advice that we may still have aftershocks of up to 6.2 coming!
Our school is structurally sound so at this stage we are waiting for information from the authorities about water purity and sewage systems. There will be a meeting at 4:00 pm with Ministry, Council and Health agencies. After this we will have some idea of what is happening tomorrow. In the meantime stay safe!

I know that all of you in Canterbury will have been affected by the Earthquake. At the School we appear to have got of lightly with just superficial damage. The Ministry representatives are telling us that they will have assessed all schools by the end of Tuesday. We have two classrooms that may have structural damage so we are required to remain off site until our buildings have been cleared. Our staff have been affected with a number having homes that are seriously damaged and that are likely to be uninhabitable. They have been receiving much welcomed support from friends and family.
Our thoughts go out to all of those who have had property damaged and to our children, many of whom are quite traumatized. We are thankful that as a community we have had no loss of life.
We hope to be back in action on Wednesday.
