The effects of Cyclone Gita

You will be aware that a State of Emergency has been declared for Christchurch City including Banks Peninsula by the Christchurch City Council this afternoon. 

However, we have been informed by the Ministry of Education that we are not required to close. Therefore we expect that Burnside High School will be open as normal on Wednesday 21 February although we are continuing to monitor the effects of Cyclone Gita closely, and to follow advice from the Ministry of Education. We will make a final decision as early as possible tomorrow morning.

If the situation changes overnight we will update this Moodle page as soon as we are able to, and also contact members of our community via text message and on the radio.

We wish all students, parents and staff a safe evening.
