    Snow and flooding closes schools

    Two early childhood centres and seven schools have been closed due to snow and flooding in the lower South Island.


    More than 700 children have a day off school and daycare after snow and flooding closed early childhood centres and schools in Otago and Southland.

    All up, seven schools and two early childhood centres were affected on Wednesday, Katrina Casey from the Ministry of Education says.

    "Three of the seven schools were forced to close because their school buses couldn't get through on the roads," she said.

    "We are helping all the impacted schools and early learning services. No reports of damage have been received."

    The closed schools are Tapanui School, Blue Mountain College, Heriot School, Northern Southland College, Lumsden School, Mossburn School and Garston School.

    The early childhood centres shut are Riverstones Early Learning Centre in Lumsden and Kidz Way Early Learning Centre in Tapanui.
