School Policy reviews, ASHS Food Truck Evening and AJHS Summer Gala!

Kia ora ASHS whānau,

Just a heads up about some important policies being reviewed, and some great events on the horizon. 

New cellphone ban policy and other policies up for review this term

As you will know, the coalition government has decreed that cell phones are to be banned in school. Whilst we do have until the end of Term One to implement the policy, it made sense to bite the bullet and lay down the expectations from day one. Below is the message we gave students at the beginning of the school year. 
2024 Teacher Only Day - Tuesday 31 Jan.jpg

Before we sign off the policy we need to consult with the community. Here are the guidelines from the MoE. Please read these before commenting on the policy.
Here is our draft policy. Please have a read and if you have any feedback please email me directly at by the end of next week. 

Other policies under review in Term One

Every term Schooldocs opens up a number of policies for review. You can read and review these policies by following the link below and clicking on the ‘Current Review’ tab. The current policies under review are:
