School Closure

12 February 2023

Kia ora FCI Whānau

We hope you are all safe and as prepared as you can be for Cyclone Gabrielle.

Cyclone Gabrielle is forecast to bring dangerous conditions with heavy rain warnings, associated flooding, road closures, high winds and power outages.

Today we gathered information from the MET Service weather forecast, Emergency Management in Auckland and the Auckland Director of Education.

We have considered the safety of our students, staff and whānau and have made the decision to close our school tomorrow, Monday, 13 February.

This means that Farm Cove Intermediate will not be open on Monday, 13 February.

On Monday afternoon we will review the weather situation and will make the decision about the appropriateness of opening on Tuesday.

Thank you for your understanding.

If you or your whānau are adversely affected by the cyclone over the coming days, please feel free to reach out to us so that we can offer support.

Kia kaha.
