Mask wearing is strongly recommended for first 4 weeks of Term 3 

We have recently been advised that the Ministry of Education and Ministry of Health strongly recommend that all schools require mask wearing in all indoor settings in the first four weeks of term two.  We support this recommendation and strongly encourage students to wear masks indoors. The public health advice clearly shows that mask wearing is a strong tool in the defence against the transmission of COVID-19 and other airborne respiratory viruses.  It is therefore an important additional measure to help keep people safe from potential viruses at this time of year. NOTE: Face masks are still required by mandate on all school buses. 

A reminder that if your child is unwell, they should not be sent to school. Stay safe.
