Alert Level 4 - Covid-19

Pānui 4

​​Remaining at Alert Level 4

Tēnā koutou e te whānau,

Kia mau, kia noho whakaaraara, noho koi te hinengaro o te tamaiti ki nga mātau katoa hei ārahi i a ia i roto i te ao hou.


I think we had all anticipated a further extension of Alert Level 4, and the Prime Minister has confirmed this. Alert Level 4 will remain in place until 12:59pm Friday 27 August.


Kura@kāinga

Kura@kāinga will start on Wednesday 24 August, including karakia at 9.00am through Google Meet, links will be shared to whānau through email and Facebook.


By now you should have been contacted by kaimahi in regards to distribution of tamariki mahi and devices. Encourage, and where necessary assist your tamariki (Tau 4 and older) to check and manage their email inboxes for notifications. Today, staff have collated all tamariki work packs, and on Tuesday they will be distributed out to whānau. Please do not come to kura unless you have been individually contacted by us to do so. If you have any questions regarding this please get in contact with Whaea Shar, Whaea Hayley or Whaea Amber.


Devices are expected to be delivered between 10.30am - 3pm, our driver will leave the device on your doorstep, knock and wait for someone to come out and collect, please ensure you remain a safe distance from them. If you are not home the device will be returned to kura and sent via courier.

Device Agreements

We ask that you remind tamariki of the responsibilities of using kura devices at home. These are the same as using kura devices in class:

  • Take care and look after the device.

  • Do not access sites that are inappropriate.

  • Do not send messages that may be seen as harassment or bullying.

  • Kura devices are for kura mahi only and only for student use.


Due to the speed in which we went into lockdown ‘Device Agreements’ were not able to be completed onsite, therefore accepting to utilise the device at home, you also accept the terms of use.


Under this Agreement the student will:

1. Use the device for the purposes it was provided and abide by the ‘Kura Acceptable use of the Internet Policy’ and ‘Computer and Internet Use Agreement’.

2. Provide suitable care and security of the device at all times and immediately report any damage or loss of the laptop to your kaiako, and Tumuaki.

3. Be prepared to cover the excess of $100.00 or the cost of repair or replacement of the laptop when the damage or loss has been a result of your own negligence (cost will vary depending on damage).

4. Make a commitment to achieving the ICT goals of the kura.

5. Return the device to the kura on the first day that kura is reopened.

6. In accordance with kura policies, be held responsible for any involvement by yourself or any other user of your laptop in activities associated with accessing inappropriate or illegal materials.


COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic

Level 4 restrictions require the clinic at kura to be rescheduled to next week. By the end of the week the vaccination team will be in contact with you with an amended date and time. If you have not received your first vaccination, you still can by calling 0800 MIHI 4U or 0800 644 448. This now includes tamariki aged 12 years and up.

Mauri ora,


Whaea Sharlene Teirney

Acting Tumuaki
