COVID-19 (Online Learning Information)

This page has been updated on Wednesday 17th August, 2021 for our parents and community. School is currently CLOSED for staff and students.

We have created a Learning Portal that can be accessed at home with various ways/ideas for learning at home. TVNZ still has On Demand learning options. 

 

If you have a query do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher via email or Seesaw.

 

Support and Services for Families / Whānau

 

Many families may find it tough going back to Alert Level 4. It can be challenging having children at home, being cut off from family and friends, trying to make ends meet and high stress levels.

For people with disabilities or autism and their support people, the Explore 0800 000421 phone service is available to provide advice or support. This includes advice or support around challenging behaviours. To access this service, you don’t need a referral and it doesn’t matter whether you are new to Explore, currently on their waitlist or you’ve worked with them previously. The service is available Monday to Friday 9am-5pm. When you phone the 0800 number you will be connected with an administrator who will book you an appointment with one of the specialists.

If you or anyone you know wants some advice or support over time here are some further options that might be useful.
