Principal's Weekly Review 17 September 2021

Kia ora,   

This week we celebrated Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori (Māori Language Week).  This gives the school an added opportunity to focus on, and support the broader Māori language revival, and the raising of public awareness of Māori language, learning, and public usage. 

This week we returned to our regular teaching and learning programme.  This follows on from the last two days of the previous week, which focussed on well-being, re-connecting, and assessing students’ readiness to learn. 

Although we are functioning under Alert Level 2 criteria specific to schools, we still unfortunately have restrictions on school based activities that allow our community to participate in.   Consequently, we are still in the process of reviewing the dates of a number of many events on our school calendar.  This process will need to continue, as this will be influenced by the Ministry of Health’s regulations associated with each Alert Level status.  We will keep you informed of any changes as quickly as possible.  

Thank you for your ongoing support as we continue to function under Alert Level 2.  We look forward to the potential changes that may come if we are able to move down to Alert Level 1.  It is likely this will mean fewer restrictions to the number of people coming into the school, and therefore our ability to hold events and activities with our community will not be limited to 50 people.  We are looking forward, in particular, to being able to share student success with our community present, through our celebratory events in Term 4.


Ka pai tō rā whakatā  (Have a good weekend)
