Official Update from The Polyfest Trust - 16 March 2020


New Zealand's position to proactively stop any further spread of COVD-19 has changed gears and we are expecting that restrictions on mass and public gatherings will be announced in the next few days.  We have made it clear that any decision to cancel ASB Polyfest would require a directive from the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Education.

 The Polyfest Trust has met with its key stakeholders today to consider all the information provided by these agencies and agree that our event must be cancelled in the best interest of current public health advice.

Although an official statement from Government regarding mass and public gatherings is expected soon, we want to give people as much notice as possible so other arrangements can be made. This includes looking at options which will allow student performers to submit their performances for judging as well as fulfil assessment obligations in relation to NCEA credits. We will be working closely with stage co-ordinators and schools on how we can best accommodate this.
