Important Notice for Term 4 Update:
Kia ora koutou
Term 4 Update
Henderson South School will continue to be broadley closed at Level 3. For all schools in Auckland, they will not reopen to all students for Term 4 on the 18th October. Schools in Auckland will however be open on Monday 18 October for distance learning, and on-site for those children who need to attend because they don’t have appropriate care at home.
We know that Term 4 is a crucial time for students and that there is some uncertainty about how long our school will need to remain closed for general face to face teaching. We will continue to support you through this period and keep you updated. Children will only be going to school if parents must go to work and there is no other option available for them. Otherwise our school and other learning centres will be closed. We want to keep all of our tamariki safe. We will have some staff at school to supervise children that fit this criteria. Parents should email ([email protected]) or telephone 021532766 to let us know if you intend sending your children to school.
We look forward to moving to Level 2 soon so that we can return back to school.
Take care everyone.
Kua hinga te tōtara i Te Waonui-a-Tāne (The Totara tree has fallen in Tane’s great forest)
It is with a very heavy heart that I inform you that Jo Rangi (our Deputy Principal) passed away on Sunday 22nd August 2021. We are all managing the shock of this news. She was taken far too early and will be missed dearly by everyone that knew and loved her.
Lockdown will bring up many challenges for us as a community, staff and students in order to grieve and celebrate Jo’s life. She was such an amazing person totally committed to the education of our children. I will keep you posted with any developments with regard to this. There will be a period of Whakakōingo (grieving) for staff, students and families as we all come to terms with this immense loss. Teachers will be back in touch with you by Friday 27th August to reconnect with our whānau.
