Today, several schools in the North West of Auckland were sent a hoax email about a bomb being planted in their school. Hare Krishna School was amongst them.
The Police were immediately alerted and the school was evacuated. After an inspection by the Police the school was found to be safe and the Principal was advised. He elected to keep the children at a nearby school, Riverhead School, until the end of the day.
The children and staff are all safe and well. School will close at the normal time and the buses will be running as usual this afternoon.
