Year 5 & 6 Camp Ruakawa

2 November 2021

Kia ora Year 5 and 6 whānau!


Just letting you know that camp is still going ahead.


We are currently working within the COVID-19 guidelines from the Ministry with regards health and safety. We are gathering information to ensure that as per the current guidelines, all teachers, parent volunteers, camp staff and bus drivers will have met the current vaccination requirements.


Mr Tom Sheehan is on sick leave and will not be attending the camp.


I am aware that due to the current environment around COVID-19 and vaccinations, some whānau may be anxious about their child/ren attending camp.


If this is you, and it does not fit your whānau at the moment to send your child/ren to camp, we understand, and the option is there for your child to not attend, and instead remain at school for the week, in Mrs Autagavaia's class. If this is your preferred option, please contact me via email by Friday 5th November to let me know. a.cawood@stjamescatholic.school.nz


We are very excited about camp and are looking forward to providing your child/ren with an adventure they will remember forever!


Any questions, please ask.


Thank you for your ongoing support.
