15 Mar Villa Maria College Lockdown
As you will be aware we have had an extended lockdown this afternoon due to the situation in the city. We followed the instructions from both the NZ Police and Ministry of Education and kept all girls safe and secure in their classes. Girls behaved remarkably well under trying circumstances.
We are very conscious of the seriousness of what has occurred and the many families who may be affected by these tragic events. Our prayers are with all those who are affected.
Thank you so much for your patience and your support through a difficult time. We communicated regularly through our Alert system on the App and on the Website. We heard from some families who were not receiving these updates. Please consider downloading the App so that you get all these emergency communications.
Please let us know of any concerns are may have about your daughters if they are especially affected.
