I am very sorry to let you know that a member of the Naylor Love Construction Team has suffered a medical emergency on site this morning and has since passed away. We have met with the family and all arrangements have been made.

We communicated with staff this morning who will be talking with students who can access support from our counselling staff if needed.

Out of respect for the family and with regard to the impact of an incident like this on staff and students we have decided to postpone this afternoon's Learning Conferences and will be in touch with details of how to reschedule at a later date. Tomorrow's conferences will go ahead as planned.

We have asked whanau from Te Ati Awa to conduct rituals in line with tikanga for these circumstances.
