Schools closed today due to weather

16 schools in Nelson, Marlborough and the West Coast have advised their sites are closed today. Ten early learning services are also closed.

The best information will come from schools themselves and parents and whānau should check their school’s website or Facebook page or contact them directly for the latest information. 

The decision to close remains that of the Board of Trustees for schools and Centre Managers/Owners for Early Learning services. Our support is available if needed.
