Hamilton Boys' High School
I would like to extend our sympathy and support to our families overseas whose lives have been dramatically affected by Covid-19 and to the many families who have had to cancel or postpone travel. At this stage, New Zealand has only 28 cases of Covid-19 and they can all be linked to recent international travel. There are no community-based outbreaks. The number of Covid-19 cases will no doubt increase but, with travel restrictions and strict self-isolation policies now in place, we expect the spread of the virus to remain manageable.
All major school and community events have now been postponed or cancelled and our students and families are grappling with the ramifications and disappoint of these cancellations. In the months to come, it is important that we continue to be kind, supportive and sensible towards each other and this challenging situation.
In the unlikely event that schools close for a short period of time, our boarding students will go to their set leave homestays. All our set leave and full-time homestay families will continue to support and care for our international students.
For many of our international students, it will be the first time they are unable to return home during a term break. We will encourage and support our International students to plan some fun activities and create opportunities to spend time with International students from our neighbouring schools.
I hope you enjoy looking at the photos from our action-packed summer.
