Staying in Alert Level 4 Lockdown

Kia ora whanau. Thank you for your support to those that completed the online survey. The response was awesome. For those students who are working online, no doubt they have connected with their teachers and classes today. Yesterday we did a drop to approx. 80 houses of home learning packs, the packs have been given to students who dont have access to the online learning platform.

Alert Level 4 continued...

Firstly, a huge thank you to all of those, a definite vast majority, that completed the information survey we sent out. We had over half the school complete it within 12 hours. The Prime Minister has announced that we will continue to be in Alert Level 4 until Tuesday. This means that all schools are continuing to be closed (this includes the school grounds). We will be teaching online during Alert Levels 4 and 3, information will be emailed on Sunday from classroom teachers around what next weeks learning will look like.
