Kia ora koutou

With yesterday’s announcement by Government, we are implementing our plan to support your child’s learning from home. 

For the rest of this week, your child’s teacher will contact you to clarify what will happen next.

From 30 March until 14 April inclusive school is closed for the school holidays which have been brought forward. We will resume supporting  your child’s learning from home from 15 April.

Your child will be looking to you for guidance about this decision. Parents, caregivers, whānau and teachers will have a particularly important part to play in reassuring children at this time. If you haven’t already done so, you may wish to read the information put together by the Ministry of Education to support your conversations with your children – Talking to children about COVID-19

As noted by the Prime Minister these restrictions are our best chance to slow the virus in New Zealand and to save lives. We all have a clear role here to slow the spread of COVID-19.

We will continue to communicate with you over the coming days. Thank you for your ongoing support of our school staff and school community.
