I hope that you are keeping safe inside your bubbles and that you are having positive interactions with others in your world as we unite against Covid-19. Life is certainly different for everyone at the moment.
You may be aware that the government has announced further details about what life will be like when the country moves from Covid Level 4 to Level 3. This included information for schools.
When the country moves to Level 3 school, senior students (Years 11-13) will continue to learn remotely from home. Under no circumstances are any senior students to be at school. This is unlawful under Level 3 rules.
Year 9 and 10 students who can stay home should do so. Schools will only be open for Year 9 and 10 students whose parents or caregivers are essential workers. If your child is a vulnerable person, or has a vulnerable person in their bubble you should consider this as you make the decision about whether to return to school.
In order to prepare for this transition we need to gather information about who these students are so we can begin planning what our school programme is going to look like.
If your Year 9 or 10 student will be attending once school re-opens can you please contact your child’s Hub Mentor with this information.
The school will keep you updated about possible start dates as more information comes to hand.
At this stage we have not been informed if buses will be running.
I would like to congratulate our aakonga who have been engaging in online learning and continuing to build connections with their peers, teachers and hub mentors.
Chris Jarnet, Principal
