Measles Update from the Canterbury District Health Board
by Marinda van Vuuren - Tuesday, 2 April 2019, 9:00 AM

To help contain Canterbury's measles outbreak a wider group of people are now eligible to receive a second MMR vaccination.

As well as continuing to provide the vaccine to those aged 12 months to 28 years old who have never been vaccinated, the Canterbury District Health Board is extending the availability of a second dose of MMR vaccine to:

  • All those aged 12 months to 28 years
  • Caregivers of infants aged up to 12 months
  • Those aged between 29 and 50 who work with children

Extending the second dose to these groups recognises the importance of stopping the transmission of measles amongst young people.

Please don't export measles these school holidays. The measles virus is incredibly infectious. If you are travelling these holidays, please make sure your tamariki are fully vaccinated before departing. It takes two weeks for a person to be fully immune after a vaccination, so please contact your GP team about vaccination as soon as you can.

More information on the measles can be found at www.cph.co.nz/news-events

Kia ora e te whānau
by Bernadette Shaw - Wednesday, 27 March 2019, 11:34 AM

This Friday, 29 March 2019, our school will be closed for the day to allow our staff and students to attend the National Remembrance Service in Hagley Park at 10.00 am. This is an act of respect for those we have lost.


The Friday 15 March Attack had a significant impact on our community. Muhammad Haziq Mohd Tarmizi, a current student, was killed; three fathers of students were wounded; and three further students had four close relatives killed. Our staff have provided wonderful support for our students and families since the attack. The National Remembrance...
