地震の続報が、Education New Zealandから来ましたのでお伝えします。

Christchurch Earthquake Update
Education New Zealand: 09/09/10
Things in Christchurch are improving following the earthquake, and power and water have been restored to almost all homes. Tap water is safe to drink without boiling. Aftershocks have continued in the region, but have not been as severe as the initial earthquake on Saturday morning. We are optimistic that most students will return to classes next week. We assure you
that their safety and well being are a priority, and they are fine despite the disruption.
We are very pleased to tell you that there were no deaths associated with this event, and only two serious injuries. There are no reports of international students with serious injuries. All students are being cared for and supplied with fresh drinking water, hot meals and shelter if
their homes are uninhabitable.
The Christchurch airport is open, and incoming flights are operating. Students planning to come to Christchurch in the near future do not need to change or cancel their plans. All other regions of New Zealand have experienced no effects from the earthquake and it is business as usual
outside of Christchurch.
Students in Christchurch are waiting for their institutions to re-open. The majority are expected to open on September 13. If you have students in primary, intermediate, secondary or private tertiary institutions as well as English language schools, you should check their websites or call
them to find out when they are planning to recommence classes.
At this time the University of Canterbury, Lincoln University, CPIT, Design & Arts College and the majority of institutions are planning to commence classes on September 13. While this has been a challenging week in Christchurch, it has also brought out the best in many people. Hundreds of university students unable to return to class have offered to help with clean
up of people’s homes and businesses via a Facebook group. Many other citizens are offering assistance through the Civil Defence centres.
The Ministry of Education is providing further updates regarding schools on their website www.minedu.govt.nz. We will also update you with any major news regarding the situation. We would like to thank those of you who have offered your good wishes to everyone in Christchurch. Your thoughtfulness is greatly appreciated.
