“Unfortunately several students and staff are still displaying symptoms and we have now been advised to close for two days so that an intensive clean of the school can take place.
“We recognise the inconvenience this may cause to parents and students, but the health of those at the school has to remain our priority. We expect to be in a position to reopen the school on Monday.”
