Redwood School classroom fire

After a very positive year and a lovely farewell celebration assembly for our Year 6’s, it was extremely  disappointing to be called into school late last night after a fire broke out in the wall of Room 5. This appears to have been deliberately lit using accelerant and has caused some damage to the north facing wall beside the classroom entrance and window. I struggle to fathom the mentality of arsonists who would attempt to destroy a school at the heart of the Redwood community.

Fire service and police response was excellent and they confirmed that the fire was suspicious and that a group of youths were seen in and near the school at the time of the fire. Police will be investigating the fire further and gathering information.

Room 5 will be repaired by the time our tamariki return to school on 30 January. Fortunately Rooms 5 and 6 were to be used later in the year as New Entrant roll growth rooms and are not required immediately at the beginning of the year.

My particular thanks to police, fire service, the vigilance of our school neighbours, our caretaker Ron Wilson who was the initial staff contact on the scene and also Redwood School Board of Trustees Chairperson, Nadine Marshall who was also quickly on site.

Your assistance would be greatly appreciated in finding the culprits. If you hear of any comment about the perpetrators or have relevant information about this incident please contact the police as soon as possible on the numbers below or through any Christchurch police station.
