During the 2019 summer break there is huge investment in the IT infrastructure at John Port. This does mean that the telephone system will work intermittently and the email system will be out of operation during a large part of the holiday. The system will be back in operation from August 28th. For any urgent issues that arise, some staff will be in the academy throughout the holiday.
