On Monday this week, the Secretary for Education took the decision to direct schools and other education providers in Auckland to close for on-site instruction (learning) because of the weather emergency and the need to reduce traffic on roads. This initial direction was until the 7 th of February, which is the last day by which schools must start their term under education regulations.
The Secretary for Education, Iona Holsted, undertook to review the direction to close on a daily basis, to minimise disruption to schools that can open. After review today, the Secretary has lifted the Direction to close.
As a result of this decision, The Board and the Senior Leadership Team has decided that the school will open tomorrow, Thursday 2nd February 8.55am (Please arrive by 8.45am to ensure settling in time). The office will be open tomorrow morning from 7.45am for uniform sales only.
A site inspection has been conducted to ensure the school grounds and buildings are safe for school use.
Please note, EZLunch is not available until Tuesday 7th February. Thursday Sausage Sizzle will resume on Thursday 16th February. All children will need to bring morning tea, lunch and a water bottle to school.
We are awaiting information from sKids regarding before and after school care. Please contact Pip Povey on [email protected] for further information.
