Important newsletter: Tuesday 24 March

Kia ora koutou

Our staff have been at school today, getting our heads around the implications of the Level 4 COVID19 situation and what it means for us as teachers, and also as individuals who have families, elderly parents, friends and loved ones who also need supporting over the coming weeks.

Changes to school holidays

As part of the changes announced yesterday, the school holidays have been brought forward two weeks. This means that Term 1 finishes this Friday, and Term 2 officially begins (at home) on Wednesday 15th April (after Easter Tuesday).

Between now and Friday, we are all adjusting to this new way of being and we do not anticipate that you will want to necessarily be focusing on learning.

We have created a new page as part of our website called Learning at Home. You can either click on the link above, or go to the school website, and find it by clicking on the link (as shown below) on the Learning at Home icon.

This page has some suggestions from the Ministry of Education about how you 'could' engage with learning if you want to over the next three days, or not!

By the end of the holidays, our staff will have created and made live more detailed options for learning that will be team based and from which you can then select, as you need.

Until then, we wish you all the very best with these challenging and important changes for our country.

Ngā mihi nui

Sandy, and the team.
