Onekawa School Newsletter

Week 4 Term 1, Friday 24 February

Principal's Comment

Kia ora Parents and Caregivers

It was really good to welcome back our children on Wednesday this week. It was our priority for us to open school as soon as possible to minimise the disruption to families and get children back into their usual routine. Our children appear to be happy back at school and it's been good to take their mind off the stress of the previous week.

Today, the newsletter includes lots of photos of children in action from the week.

As mentioned two weeks ago, parents are able to access the new school app 'Hero'. Instructions on how to get connected are included below.

With the 'Hero' app, parents can do the following:

  • Report absences (much more easily than the previous app)
  • Receive learning/celebration posts about your child (this replaces Seesaw)
  • Receive notifications
  • View the school calendar
  • See a graphic of your child's attendance
  • Access the school website (via link)
  • Access our school policies website (user name: onekawa password: pipi)
  • Receive urgent text messages from the school

In the coming months you will be able to make payments and view your school account balance. We will let you know when this feature becomes available.

If you have any issues, please make contact with us in the office.

Have a good weekend.
