Update 23-3-2019 2.15pm

This means that the school will be closed from Thursday 26th for a period of 4 weeks. This means students will not be able to attend the school from Thursday 26th for a period of 4 weeks.

We are currently reassessing our earlier announcements in regards to the Teacher Only day and rostering Year 12 and 13 students home. We will inform you as soon as we can about what the school will be doing on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Update 23-3-2019

As noted on the website notice – there will be a Teacher Only Day on Wednesday 25th March 2020. This is to help enable staff to create physical and digital resources to support students learning while away from school.

We will be rostering home Year 12 and 13 students tomorrow on Tuesday 24th March 2020, this is due to the reduced staffing capacity that we have due to the announcement by Jacinda Ardern over the weekend about people over 70 and those with pre-existing conditions, such as chronic respiratory disease – including severe asthma, bronchiectasis and COPD – and those who are immunocompromised, to stay at home. We have a dedicated staff who are determined to do all they can to support the students and their learning however we need to act on the advice for their wellbeing also.

Please continue to check this website for further information as this situation is rapidly changing as you will be aware. Stay safe and be kind.
