Statement from St Andrew’s Cathedral School

 

 

 

The following can be attributed to a spokesperson for the School:

 

“St Andrew’s Cathedral School remains closed today to all students except those sitting Year 12 exams, as the school continues to work with Police following an onsite death overnight.

 

No students were involved and there is no ongoing threat.

 

An area of the school, not accessible to students, is a crime zone, and we await the approval of Police before bringing everyone back on site.

 

The only students onsite are those sitting exams, and we ask that the media does not seek to interrupt their concentration or state of mind as they sit exams that are significant for their graduation.

 

The School has brought our school counsellors onsite for professional support for parents and students as required – and again we ask that the media respects the emotional situation of those seeking support.

 

Police have asked that we do not make any further public commentary so all media inquiries must directed to the Police.  Thank you for your cooperation.
