ASHS Update – Learning continues online…
Kia ora e te whānau,
As you will have heard, Auckland will remain at Level Three and learning will continue online next week. This will be reviewed next week.
I know some students will be anxious as we approach the end of the year, and I am confident that we will recieve an update regarding NCEA later this week and I want to remind our learners that if they are returning next year, that they have plenty of time to continue with their learning! For those learners who are leaving us this year, we will continue to support them to meet their academic targets and ensure they get the best results they can. Please encourage and support your young person to re-engage with their learning next week as our teachers will be working hard to gather evidence for NCEA over the coming weeks. This may include any class work as well as more formal assessments. 
In terms of the plans for rest of Term Four, we will update you when we can. 
Below are the key updates shared by the Ministry of Education following today’s announcements. 

  • The Auckland region will remain at Alert Level 3 as it currently stands, for another week. Cabinet will review this decision on Monday 18 October. 

  • For schools in Auckland, they will not reopen to all students on the 18th and further public health advice will be provided next week. Schools in Auckland will however be open on Monday 18 October for distance learning. 

  • For all Alert Level 3 regions, there are immediate COVID-19 testing requirements for school staff prior to their return to school. 

  • From 1 January 2022, schools and early learning services and providers will need to ensure only vaccinated staff and support personnel have contact with children and students. They need to have their first dose by 15 November.

  • Schools will also need to maintain a COVID-19 vaccination register. 

  • This includes home-based educators and anyone in the home aged over 12, and all those support people in our schools and early learning services such as teacher-aides, administration and maintenance staff. 

  • Face coverings are required to be worn by Year 9 to 13 students when on school transport at all Alert Levels.

  • Face coverings continue to be required by students and staff in secondary settings (Year 9 to 13) at Alert Level 3, including in middle and area schools. Children under 12 years of age remain exempted from wearing face coverings. 


And remember…

Be kind.
Stay safe.
Stay home.
Wear a mask if going out!
We got this team!!
