Dear Parents and Caregivers

The COVID-19 situation moved quickly

As we are now at National Pandemic Level 4 status. The following outlines our online learning environment which will start today at 10.30am.

All Teams will email out information regarding the following:

Kiri Team (Y0/1) – will continue their Olympic Inquiry and will include a range of supporting learning activities.

Cowley (Y2/3) and Hillary (Y4/5) Teams – An integrated Weather Inquiry which includes Literacy and Numeracy activities will be available on SchoolTalk.

Snell Team (Y6/7/8) – for the reminder of Week 4, will continue to access their Mathematics Workshops and speech writing activities timetabled on SchoolTalk.

Whole Class Google Meet times over the Level 4 lock down from Thursday the 19th onwards:

  • Kiri: 9.30-10.00 am
  • Cowley: Y2s 10.30 – 11.00 am; Y3s 11-11.30am

Kohimarama Students can continue to use the resources online to support students across the school;
● Maths, continue using the platforms we have and students are familiar with.

For all students, we will be supporting their learning from your home in the following ways:
● Through online learning
● Using Google Hangouts between 9-12 during each school day.
● Contact with the school remains via email.

Collecting or borrowing a device from school
Unfortunately due to the rapid move into Level 4 this evening, and with the school officially closed by the Director of Health, no one including staff are permitted on site. So we are unable to retrieve devices or provide a loan device at this time.

If you are unable to access SchoolTalk please email to have your account reset.

As a learning community we continue to focus on the students as the centre of what we do and look forward to partnering with you to continue this process for the next little while.

Parents, caregivers, whānau and teachers will have a particularly important part to play in reassuring children at this time. If you haven’t already done so, you may wish to read the information put together by the Ministry of Education to support your conversations with your children – Talking to children about COVID-19

I hope that you all remain healthy and safe during the next week.

Kind Regards
Paul Engles
