The man arrived in Auckland from Europe on Thursday 12th March and attended the Tongan Fiafia event for about an hour that evening, according to the school.

His child attended the school most days following until Thursday March 19 and does not have any symptoms, the school said.

"MRGS is committed to ensuring the safety of its students and is currently in discussions with Ministry of Education and Ministry of Health as to how best to achieve this."

"Once we are in position to advise our students and parents of such we will do so."

The school has a pre-scheduled holiday tomorrow.

MRGS is also in discussion with Mt Roskill Primary and Mt Roskill Intermediate, who they share a campus with, to ensure a co-ordinated approach.

The school anticipates further announcements later today.
