Bayfield Primary School has been temporarily closed after the discovery that building work had disturbed asbestos-containing materials.

The Ministry of Education and WorkSafe NZ have assisted the school in responding to parents' concerns, including taking air and environment samples from the site.  

Ministry of Health officials have been working with the Auckland Regional Public Health to help address some of the health concerns of parents.
