Monday 23 August 20201


I hope everyone has enjoyed spending quality family time during our first weekend of Lockdown. Your class teacher will be making contact with you all regarding the Home Learning. Throughout each week of Lockdown they will also make contact with you to check-in on what you have been doing. This might be through zoom, google meet, email or phone. It is important that during this time we stay connected with each

Below are just a couple of links to services you may wish to access through illness and a build up of anxiety (or feeling overwhelmed).

Some of you may have already heard from your child's class teacher. For those who have requested the online learning then you may have started today - well done.

Government Announcement this afternoon

The government are making decisions this afternoon around what might be happen next and for the rest of the week. Information will be sent out tomorrow if anything drastically changes for us but the plan is to continue with the home learning at least until the end of this week.

Delivery of Hard Packs

We will be delivering all the requested Home Packs on Tuesday, 23 August. Remember we will still be operating Home Packs under Level 3 and 4 Lockdowns. If you live in the town boundary these Home Packs will be delivered in your mailboxes.

If you live in Scot's Gap, Aparima or Bayswater these packs will be delivered to your address. These will be contactless deliveries.

Tau Competency Activities

We would love all students to share with their class teacher via Seesaw what they have been doing in relation to the Tau Competency activities. Each week in our newsletter we would love to also share with our community what we have all been doing. Please share these activities with your teacher. Hopefully these activities provide a wide variety of choice and fun. These activities will be updated each week.

Essential Worker Children Attending School Register

We are now wanting to plan for when Alert Level 3 will happen. If you are an essential worker and will require your child to attend school then please complete this form. It is our understanding that at this stage the school buses will continue to run (under their safety conditions).
