Following the PM announcement of the extension of Level 3 in Auckland an email will be sent to you tomorrow detailing what learning will look like.
If your child/ren cannot be supervised at home, please contact your child’s Whānau Leader as soon as possible so suitable arrangements can be made.
Otherwise the school will be closed except for the students who require supervision who must report directly to the venue specified, be prepared to work independently, have water and food for the day, a device and charger and be picked up at 3 p.m.
More information will follow.
Kia ora whānau
Later today we await the Prime Minister’s announcement on whether the lockdown will continue, be lifted or even move to Level 4. The school is preparing for each scenario, hoping for the best and planning for the worst. We will notify you in all likelihood on Saturday as the announcement is expected late today. Similarly it would be wise for you to also plan for the different scenarios.
Stay well, be safe.
College Sport has announced that all fixtures due to be played this weekend have been cancelled.
During lockdown level 3 for the remainder of the week we are asking students to:
- Complete their Reading Plus and Maths Buddy expectations for the week
- Complete any assessments
- Work on their Student Led Conference presentation
- Stay active
- Practice the school haka
At this stage there are no students at the school and no requests. If you are an essential worker and your child requires supervision please contact your child/ren’s Whānau Leader. If they are to attend school please ensure they have face masks, their devices and chargers as well as food and water for the day. Water fountains, microwaves and the toasters are not available for use.
I will send further updates as and when we are informed of the situation moving forward. Hopefully we will be back at school on Monday.
Dear Parents and Students
You may have heard the news that we are back at Covid level 3 and schools are closed to all except essential workers from tomorrow (12 August).
Based on advice on the COVID website, Schools in Auckland can safely open but will have limited capacity. Where possible we encourage students to learn from home.
Only children who cannot be supervised at home should be at school and parents are to contact whanau senior leaders:
Mountains – Ian Suckling – email@example.com
Water – Cathy Hewlett – firstname.lastname@example.org
Forest – Melanie Kindley – email@example.com
Coast – Raeesa Dada – firstname.lastname@example.org
Students should still be able to access their learning online.
Further updates will be sent by email. Please check the school website and facebook.
One of our core values is compassion/awhinatanga and we are proud of the way our community responded to our charity drives recently and lived our values.
Our annual poppy day collections were disrupted by the lockdown however we had a mufti day and raised $1200 for the Howick RSA.
The Student Executive Council also started a Give a Little page which raised $500 for the Salvation Army food bank. This is in addition to the work of student leaders who collected cans for the Salvation Army and everyone involved in the World Vision 40 hour famine appeal which raised $10000.
Many thanks to everyone who supported these charity drives.
