Like you, we are shocked and saddened by the terror attack in Christchurch on Friday. The impact will affect us all forever.
We send love, sympathy and condolences to the victims of this hateful crime, their families and communities.
Our thoughts are with the teachers of Christchurch who loved and protected their students and kept them safe, even as they were afraid themselves. We praise your bravery, especially this morning as you go back to work.
PPTA president Jack Boyle is in Christchurch to support our colleagues there and is happy to pass on any messages of support.
