Police training exercise in our area

RE: Police/Community Training Drill

The Canterbury Police have informed the school and allowed us to share with the community that they are undergoing a training drill today, 25 of June.
A number of emergency services personnel will be on site at the Helene Curtis building (corner of Main North Road and Northcote Road) participating in emergency simulation training exercise.  The exercise is due to take place between 10.00am and 2.00pm and therefore may be visible from the road for our students returning home after school.  Personnel involved may be dressed as Police, the armed offenders squad or in plain clothing.  

The Police are mindful that this may be distressing for some of our school community.  In light of this, and the exercise being in control of the Police we have provided a reminder of two support services should they be required.
