Todays Announcements

12 Hepetema 2022

Tēnā koutou e te whānau,


There have been some key announcements from the Prime Minister this afternoon that we would like whānau to be aware of:


1. COVID-19 Traffic Light Settings End at Midnight Tonight


What Does This Mean For Us?


  • Mask wearing is no longer required. Some whānau and ākonga may still want to wear a mask, and this is something we will continue to tautoko and respect.


  • Household contacts of people who test positive with COVID-19 do not need to isolate, but are instead asked to complete a RAT test each day for 5 days. This means ākonga who are household contacts, but test negative and do not have any COVID-19 symptoms, need to be at kura.


  • Ventilating indoor spaces, promoting good hand hygiene, encouraging everyone to sneeze and cough into their elbows will continue. If you or your tamaiti is unwell, please stay at home.


  • Kura will return to full kura karakia in Te Atawhai o Te Aoturoa from tomorrow morning, 8.40am


  • Over the coming days we will look at how this will change some of the activities within kura.



2. Kura Closed Monday 26 September



  • In accordance with the one-off public holiday announced for the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, kura will be closed on Monday, 26 September 2022.


3. REMINDER - Kura Early Finish Friday 16th September 2022



  • Please ensure tamariki are collected no later than 1.00pm.



We would like to thank whānau for your tautoko through such a difficult time, and we are looking forward to celebrating together as a whānau without COVID restrictions.


Mauri ora!
