MPS Closed Tuesday 14 February

We have made the decision to close again tomorrow, Tuesday 14 February. Following the Emergency Civil Defence briefing at 2pm, a pretty ugly picture of what is ahead of us in Auckland beginning later today and into tomorrow has been painted. The decisions has been made around the Health and Safety of all the children, parents, teachers and support staff at Macleans Primary School.

It is HIGHLY likely we will be open on Wednesday 15 February, although a final decisions on this will be made tomorrow afternoon-evening.

We are all here to help so please reach out to me (Principal Matthew Cooke), DP's Hazel Deutschmann (Y4-Y6) and Angelique Wendzich (Y1-Y3) or your class teacher.

Kia kaha everyone and stay safe. Here's hoping we are all together soon! :)))

Regards - Matthew Cooke

Tropical Cyclone Gabriella - School closed Tuesday 14 February Distant Learning Options

We initially offer distant learning through our school website. Go to the school website ( and under the main tab 'PROGRAMMES'' at the top, scroll down to 'distant learning'. See pic. above. There are some learning activities and ideas for Y1-Y6 available, both online and pdf. There is also a link to the MoE learning at home website from the Macleans Primary site.

We also recommend the website Sparklers as source of home learning ideas.


If the school is closed for longer than a few days, Individual classes are all well prepared for distant learning. So watch this space. In the meantime, there is no individual learning from classes. Seesaw and google are our two main sources of individual class distant learning and will be activated if needed. For now, however, please refer to the Macleans Primary school website for all your distant learning needs.

Of course, a pencil & paper and a book or three is all we need to manage learning activities ourselves in many cases.
