From our Principal – May 15th, 2020

Kia Ora Whanau!!

COVID 19 has brought about many changes to the world and especially in how we will operate as a school for the foreseeable future.

Public Health officials have advised that schools are safe to be open at Alert Level 2 and so we have been working hard to ensure that our students will be safe when they return.

Next week, we will begin School, but not as we are used to. This is new for everyone so please be patient and be assured that we will work through this “new normal” together as a family.

For those students that are unable to attend school, we will continue to deliver classes online through our teacher created websites, Google Apps for Education and HAPARA learning management system.

Under Alert Level 2, our students onsite will continue to access their learning via teacher websites and Google meet sessions. We understand the challenges that this will present for students and staff and so we will do our best to cater for all. Our teachers have created online resources which includes rewindable Google meet lessons to allow for flexibility of access for our students. We are fortunate also to have these online programmes supporting our students learning, Education Perfect, Learn Coach, e-books and Accelerated reader.

We thank our parents and families for continuing to support the Prime Minister’s request during Alert Level 4, 3 and now 2 where we will “Play it safe”.

It is important that all our students can continue their education. Please be assured that it will safe when they return and we will ensure that public health measures are in place such as social distancing, sanitizing and hand washing.

If you need support with accessing devices, food or the Health Centre support Team please contact us on info@tamaki.ac.nz.

A friendly reminder to ALL students, “Doing Nothing is not an Option”

Kia Kaha Kia Toa

Remember Be Kind, Stay Safe, Stay Home if unwell, Play it safe and Save Lives!!
