Covid-19 Alert Level 3 Update

Below is important information you need to know.

With the Government’s announcement that Auckland will remain at Alert Level 3 for the start of Term 4 (18 October), the school will be open for supervision of sons of essential workers who can’t be supervised at home by an appropriate person.

Distance learning will continue to be provided for all students who are off-site including those required to self-isolate and those individuals who health authorities have asked to stay away while waiting for a test result.

Is your son attending school at Alert Level 3?

You MUST contact Mr McKenty to let him know your son is attending school.  [email protected]

  • School days: 9.00am – 3.00pm
  • Strict Hygiene and social distancing measures will be in place
