Newsletter for week 2- He Waka Eke Noa

posted in: News

Kia ora whānau


I was hoping that we were going to get an update from the Prime Minister today about how education at Primary School may look for the remainder of this term and 2021.  Sadly this was not communicated today so we do not have an update for you.


We realise this is challenging for many, but I am confident that the MOE and government are doing all they can to get our tamariki back to school as soon as is possible while managing public health risks.


Distance learning continues and I have approached the MOE for an additional delivery of physical packs.  I await their response.


Staff have communicated they have had increased participation from tamariki with learning.  This is a great sign. Thanks for your ongoing support in a very hard time. Please remember, keep in touch with your kaiako or us if you need support in anyway. 


He Waka Eke Noa- we are all in this canoe together!


I am proud of our school whānau for our collective response to this outbreak. Thanks for all you do. We are all trying our hardest with what we have in an unprecedented time. 


On Thursday I will send out our usual information and the link for week 3’s preparation for school based bubbles. 


For now, look after your whānau.  Look after yourselves.  Reach out if you need support.  The number one thing to remember is that wellbeing and health are the most important things at the moment.


Kia kaha


Ngā mihi maioha
