Welcome to a wrap of what's happening in Christchurch today.


Occasional drizzle continues today with a fresh northeasterly and a high of 15 degrees Celsius.

Rain will continue tomorrow with a high of 16C, but will clear briefly on Friday for a high of 24C before returning in time for the weekend.


Q: What is happening to Redcliffs School? Is it to reopen or close? And how come no mention is ever made of it in the discussion surrounding the fate of other Christchurch schools?


A: In its recent announcement, the Ministry of Education did not confirm any details for Redcliffs School beyond that it was in need of "major redevelopment". No start date or funding have been announced.
