Kia ora Parents and Caregivers

We've had another fun and exciting week at Onekawa School!

I hope you've had a chance to get on Seesaw and check out some of your child's learning. If you have any issues with connecting, feel free to contact your child's teacher.

Our staff have been preparing for any potential disruption due to Covid 19. Children in Years 4-6 will have access to school chrome books should they have to stay at home at any stage. The platform for home learning for them will be delivered through 'Google Classroom'. For children in Years 1-3, we will continue to use See Saw as the learning platform.

A reminder that the school app is our one stop shop for alerts and notifications. To download, search for 'schoolappsnz' from your app store. Once downloaded type in 'Onekawa School' and you will be immediately connected!

Have a fun weekend everyone!
