Please be advised, it is likely the Government will announce that Auckland may be moving us down to Level 3 Lockdown. This will be reviewed on Monday 13th September. When we get confirmation of this we will keep our students and community informed about what this will mean for everyone.
Our school will be closed until further notice so please keep your children at home.
Our teachers will be in touch with your children to assist them with their learning at home.
Kia haumaru te noho stay safe
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.
