We are running a test of our lockdown procedures - there is NO lockdown event or risk.

If you are the designated contact person for a student at Kowhai you should have received an email / text stating that the school is in lockdown with information and instructions. If you received no notification please call the school tomorrow and update your contact details.

In a real event the following information would be posted:

Our staff are managing the situation and our top priority is to ensure the safety of our students & staff. 

  • Do NOT phone the school - calls, emails etc will not be answered during a lockdown. Our staff are busy managing the students and ensuring they are safe and cared for.

  • Do NOT come to the school - we need to leave physical access to the school free for emergency services if they are required.

We will continue to update the website as information comes to hand.

We will send information out via email and/or text when we have the opportunity.

We will post on this page when the lockdown has ended and if there will be any changes to the immediate school routine.

We will post on this page and notify you when the drill had ended.
