25 October: Important changes for senior students

Following updated information from the Ministry of Education this morning (Monday), our Senior Leadership Team has made the following changes to our senior student school return procedures this week.

We understand that this is another change and thank you for your patience while we navigate these swiftly changing times and do our best in the interests of the safety of our students and staff.

Students coming onsite this week will now be staggered in year levels. Attendance at school is optional, and all students can continue learning from home if they wish.

Please note, teachers will use Google classroom to share classroom resources and instructions as they normally would when working onsite, and be in touch regarding connecting online learners to the classroom.
