Postponed until further notice.

Covid update

Kia ora All,

Over recent weeks we have been aware of families having Covid re-emerging.  We know the rules have changed and as long as any household contacts (students) are testing negative they can continue to come to school. We would  like to remind all whānau to be vigilant for symptoms and test if necessary.  With many trips and camps continuing your ongoing support with maintaining the health of our community as we finish the term is greatly appreciated.
