Redciffs school to remain open

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:16 pm on 7 July 2016

Education Minister, Hekia Parata, has announced the fate of Christchurch's Redcliffs School this morning. It will stay open. The school has been operating out of a temporary location, since aftershocks caused rockfall from the cliff behind the school, in 2011. The government announced it was planning on closing the school down but since then, the school commissioned a new geotechnical report on the site, in an attempt to get the government to reconsider. We spoke to Principal, Rose McInerney, just after she got the good news from the Minister.
