Auckland Grammar headmaster wants school to stay open

From Checkpoint, 6:14 pm on 30 January 2023

Update: After this interview, Auckland Grammar School Principal emailed parents later on Monday to advise his school will now close until further notice. 

There is much confusion tonight at one Auckland Secondary school after the Ministry of Education instructed all Auckland schools, early childhood centres and tertiary institutions to close until February 7 due to more expected bad weather.

But Auckland Grammar Principal Tim O'Connor has emailed parents tonight to say his school will remain open tomorrow.

Tim O'Connor talks to Lisa Owen.
