    A type of flu is being blamed for temporarily closing down a Westport primary school

    A type of flu is being blamed for temporarily closing down a Westport primary school


    Sixty-six Westport North School pupils - around a third of the roll - were away sick on Monday with an unknown illness.

    The Board of Trustees closed the school until Friday for decontamination.

    Buller High School shares a boundary with the primary school, and Principal Andrew Basher says it's an influenza-type outbreak.

    He says the symptoms can last for two weeks.
