Dear Parents

Dear Parents and Caregivers 

You will be aware that Auckland will be remaining in Alert Level 4 for the next fortnight. A further announcement of our Alert Level is due on 13 September. 

The teaching staff supported by Learner Assistants continue to work in the distance learning environment. Google meets each day enables; maintaining teacher student relationships, checking in on learning, seeing each other and having fun with games and activities i.e. maintaining class socialisation. 

I have just finished a meeting with Team Leaders and Deputy Principals with regard to the continuation of the schools programme over the next fortnight. They report that we have high engagement with the learning and that students love to participate in the Google Sessions. Thank you for all you do to enable children to continue to learn in these unsettling times. I know that you are all working at home as well and understand that this is different for each family. You can contact your child’s teacher about the learning via email.
