Dear Parents and Families,
After school today, three students on their way home were violently and randomly attacked by a group of 6 young men on Dawson Road. These 6 young men are not students of Tangaroa College. Two of the three students made their way back to school where they knew they would be safe. Staff acted immediately to get the situation under control. The third student was located by staff members and brought back to school and safety.
It saddens me that this has occurred in our community and I humbly request that parents and families work together to ensure our children are safe to and from school as I can guarantee their safety at school.
I will speak to our student’s tomorrow morning about keeping safe and avoiding being at the local parks and shops. As this weekend is a long one, I urge students to be vigilant about their safety.
