Closed Monday and Tuesday

Kia ora e te whānau,

Sorry for the change in messaging! We have been following updates closely and with the closure of the Harbour Bridge and many schools and businesses already closing we have decided it would be safest to close the school for the next two days.

  • School is closed Monday and Tuesday.
  • There will be no Google Meets for students.
  • We just want you all to stay home and stay safe!
  • At this stage we are planning to reopen on Wednesday. All students will be expected to be at school at 9.50 Wednesday and will meet in their Tutor classes.

We will keep you updated if anything changes beyond Tuesday. We appreciate this isn’t the ideal start to the year, but as always we value the safety and wellbeing of our community. Please look after yourselves and those around you.
