Kia ora students and Whanau,

I hope all is well with your whanau within your Level 3 Bubble.

Our Learning From Home programme will start school wide from Tuesday 16/2/21 onwards via Google Classroom.

Our students will be able to access these lessons with their teachers via their school email account.

Our Learning From Home programme will be reviewed as we all receive more updates on Wednesday.

We will post updates on our website and by email to keep you informed as it comes to hand so that you can have certainty in learning at this time.

For students who spend the majority of their learning time in our Inclusion Support Centre ( ISC) a plan will be put in place if we are to spend a longer time in Level 3. Workpacks instead of google classroom will be issued next week for ISC students.

Once again, stay safe and thank you for providing certainty for your son or daughter, Tamariki or mokopuna at this time.

Kia ora Parents and Whanau
As you may have heard from the Prime Minister, there have been three confirmed cases of COVID-19 in South Auckland.

As a result, the Government announced at 7pm that the whole of Auckland will move from Alert Level 1 to Alert Level 3 for the next 72 hours from midnight tonight.

That means that where possible you should keep your children home from school for this period. We will be open for those of you who have no other options but to send your children to school, and we will have safety precautions in place to look after them.

If you have to come into school tomorrow please come to A Block and we will allocate safe classrooms to be in for the day. Please wear a mask, bring lunch, and a drink bottle if possible.

COVID-19 continues to be a factor we need to consider, and I assure you we have a robust plan and will do everything we need to for your children and your wider family and whānau.

We will also be updating the College Website with information as it comes to hand. We will post all this information on our Facebook page HERE also our Instagram HERE and will add it to this page.

We will be updating you shortly about school wide learning from home programme.

We have been in this situation before and I have full confidence we, as a community, can get through this again.
