Bubble Practise – Thursday 3rd March

Tēnā koutou e te whānau

This Thursday we are going to practice our bubble timetable. This will mean that students who come to school will be learning online in year groups with the same teacher for the day. The intention is to reduce the spread of the Omicron virus in our school.

This means on Thursday this week:

  • School will start at 10am for all students. 
  • 9T, Mrs Pohlen’s class, will still have their trip leaving at 9am.
  • Students will be advised which class to go to.
  • Lunches will be delivered to our students in their classrooms.
  • Each year group will get one ½ hour break.
  • School will finish at 2pm.
  • Our normal uniform and school rules will apply.
  • Students with their own devices and headphones are encouraged to bring them on Thursday to see how they work on our wifi.

Hopefully our practise day will help us to iron out any problems before we change to our bubble timetable for real.

COVID Update

At this stage I am aware of one further positive COVID case who has been isolating for 10 days. There are others who are staying home because they are close contacts with people in their homes. Please continue to let us know if you have students staying home because of a positive test or being a close contact in your household.

If your tamaiti (child) is sick, please keep them home and get them tested. If you’re unsure, call Healthline on 0800 358 5453.

In the meantime, we are continuing to encourage mask wearing and good hygiene practices.

As always, feel free to call the kura with any questions or contact our Public Health Nurse, Michaela on
