During the holidays the builders inadvertently broke the high pressure gas pipe coming into the school while installing the fence around the staff car park. This pipe has been repaired but the required testing of the gas system identified some further leaks. Most have been repaired but there is a slight drop in pressure on the pipe taking gas to the BER and Prep buildings. This is expected to be repaired during the next couple of days. In the meantime there is no gas heating in years Prep and 1. The year 2 classrooms have split systems. We are providing some temporary heating in these two year groups. Other year groups are not affected.
