An incident at Wakatipu High School (WHS) last Thursday in which a junior student made a ‘‘serious threat’’ has resulted in disciplinary action.

Principal Steve Hall won’t divulge details of the nature of the threat, however he says ‘‘it
was serious’’ and the school promptly involved the police.

Last Friday morning the police sought and spoke with the student, who was absent from school, however Hall indicates no further action was taken by them.

In a statement, police confirm they were aware of an incident that occurred ‘‘at a premises on Red Oaks Drive’’ last Thursday, have spoken with the ‘‘parties involved’’ and the matter’s been resolved.

Hall says the school has a zero-tolerance policy for the behaviour displayed and a disciplinary process is underway.

‘‘We always want WHS to be a safe place and treat any unsafe behaviour seriously.’’
