MPS Closed Monday 13 February

We have made the decision to close MPS on Monday 13 February. These decisions have been made around the Health and Safety of all the children, parents and teachers. The MoE has yet to pass a directive; their advice is to close, although they are leaving it up to individual schools. Based on my Principals Zoom Hui at 2.30pm today it would seem most schools around Auckland will be closing tomorrow.

We will likely be closed on Tuesday as well, although we will make decisions on this tomorrow afternoon, so please keep an eye out for an updated notice around this time tomorrow.

We are all here to help so please reach out to me (Principal Matthew Cooke), DP's Hazel Deutschmann (Y4-Y6) and Angelique Wendzich (Y1-Y3) or your class teacher.

Kia kaha everyone and stay safe. Here's hoping we are all together soon! :)))

Regards - Matthew Cooke

Tropical Cyclone Gabriella - School closed Monday 13 February Distant Learning Options

We initially offer distant learning through our school website. Go to the school website ( and under the main tab 'PROGRAMMES'' at the top, scroll down to 'distant learning'. See pic. above. There are some learning activities and ideas for Y1-Y6 available, both online and pdf. There is also a link to the MoE learning at home website from the Macleans Primary site.

We also recommend the website Sparklers as source of home learning ideas.


If the school is closed for longer than a few days, Individual classes are all well prepared for distant learning. So watch this space. In the meantime, there is no individual learning from classes. Seesaw and google are our two main sources of individual class distant learning and will be activated if needed. For now, however, please refer to the Macleans Primary school website for all your distant learning needs.

Of course, a pencil & paper and a book or three is all we need to manage learning activities ourselves in many cases.
