Tuesday 24th March 2020
Whilst schools are closed for 4 weeks, 2 of these weeks are considered school holidays. School holidays are being brought forward so that they are completed within the 4 week period. Holidays will now begin from Monday 30 March to Tuesday 14 April inclusive (a reminder that the Tuesday after Easter Monday is always a closed day for schools).
Our teachers have provided online learning and have been at school offering packs of learning that can be picked up. This is only limited to what can be done online independently of the teacher. In support of whanau learning from home, today the Ministry of Education have launched Learning from home and Ki te Ao Mārama. These are two new websites to support teachers, learners, parents and whānau so that learning for children and young people can continue.
The websites include resources for parents and whānau, teachers and leaders. Resources span the learning pathway from early learning through to senior secondary, and more resources will be added as they’re developed.
The information and resources are available at https://www.learningfromhome.
We encourage parents to use this resource alongside school online learning.
At the end of the school holidays, schools will be open for distance learning but not physically open for staff to work at the schools.
Please note the instruction to stay home (Alert Level 4) will continue beyond the new school holiday period but schools will be technically open for distance instruction. Teachers will be working offsite.
Keep safe, look after one another
