Waihi College School report

Posted February 13, 2020

Waihi College Principal Alistair Cochrane called into the Gold FM studio for his weekly School Report and talked about the Waihi water shortage that caused all Waihi schools to close yesterday.

He said after hearing from Hauraki District Council about the problem due to a water main rupture yesterday the schools collectively consulted before the decision to close all Waihi schools was made with the Ministry of Education.

He also explained why the schools remained closed today.At this stage it’s back to school tomorrow.

Alistair will find out later today if drinking quality water will be back on tap and if anything changes and schools need to remain closed tomorrow, Friday, the communications will be amped up to get the word out.
