Back to school

Tēnā koutou e te whānau.

A reminder that school is open on Monday and Tuesday for the children with the surnames beginning with A B C D E F G H I J K L.


Students with surnames beginning with M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z will be able to come to school on Thursday and Friday.

When your child returns to school they will need to bring the following

things on the days they attend.

1. A sunhat

2. Packed lunch and full water bottle

3. A mask for years 4 to 8 children. (Younger children in years 0 – 3 may wear one but must know how to use it. It is not compulsory for these year levels)


Gates open at 8:50am and children will begin a staggered exit at 3pm. Please do not send children early as gathering at the gates is unsafe and not permitted.


Children will be released at 3pm in pods or family groups. There will be a staggered exit to maintain safe distancing.

Children will exit from the following gates:

Dairy gate – Discovery Pod

Carpark gate – Apollo, Voyager, and Challenger Pods

Admin gate – Explorer Pod

P.A.T. gate – sibling groups and Enterprise Pod.



We are asking parents not to stand at the gates as you are risking the safety of the children and yourselves. Please keep your distance and organise another meeting place.

We are looking forward to seeing you again soon.


Kia tūtaki - see you soon!
