School at Level 2

Kia ora whānau

Term 2 began on 15 April and we spent the first 5 weeks learning from home while we were in Alert Level 3 and 4.  We'll have 7 weeks at school, and the last day of this Term is Friday 3 July.

From Week 6 we returned to school - YAY!  We are making the most of the freedoms that level 2 has afforded us. It is wonderful to think things are slowly getting back to normal for some.


An important part of this is school reopening. Having a safe and engaging place for our tamariki to crack on with some learning and socialising is so very important. 


We would love to say it will be business as usual but it won't be. There are a number of health and safety provisions we need to adhere to, to ensure we keep things safe for both students and staff. The key focuses for us are:

  • hygiene and making sure students understand and follow expectations around this.

  • we also need to minimise the number of people coming on to site.


In order to minimise the number of people in our grounds, it is essential that children are dropped off outside of school from 8.30am onward.


If you have contacted us directly to make alternative arrangements, you will be aware of the procedure you need to follow. If you must come on to site, you will need to contact us prior and sign in at the office on arrival. This is only by prior arrangement only at this stage.


If your child is sick, please do not send them to school. We understand that this can be challenging but we will not be taking any chances with sickness. If your child presents with any symptoms we will ask you to come and collect your child. If there is a suspected case of Covid-19, we would have to close for a period of time until it is confirmed whether the result is positive or negative. This compromises the entire community, so please make sensible choices around sending your child to school.

We are pumped to be open to be able to welcome our students back!
