Glitch puts whole school in detention
Every student at Waimea College in Nelson is to do detention tomorrow - or so parents were mistakenly told in a text message.
Principal Larry Ching confirmed multiple text messages had been sent to "most if not all" of the 1500 parents on Waimea's text-notification system today notifying that their child was expected to show up for detention after school on Thursday.
"We have 1500 students who theoretically are on detention but in actual fact very few of them are," he said.
The college later sent out an apology and correction.
