Te iwi tahi tatou - We are one family.
Tēnā koutou, Konnichiwa, As-salāmu 'alaykum, Hola, Hello!

Kia ora tātou,

As we move into Phase Three of the government’s plan to combat COVID-19, I thought it was important to reach out to you and let you know how our community can look after each other at this time.  Unfortunately, we do have members of our community who have tested positive for COVID and I am pleased that they are undertaking the right processes and isolating at home.

You can have some of your questions answered by going to our FAQ site on our website.  Click HERE to be taken straight there.

Firstly, keep your child home if they are unwell.  Be on the lookout for:

  • A new or worsening cough
  • Sneezing and runny nose
  • A fever
  • Temporary loss of smell or altered sense of taste
  • Sore throat
  • Shortness of breath

If children come to school and they are feeling sick, then we will call for them to be collected.  While waiting for their parents they will be in the sickbay so it will be easy to collect them from the office.

Please do not contact us about someone else’s child being unwell.  For privacy reasons, we are not able to engage with this information.  The best thing would be for you to encourage that family to contact us directly.

Call me, Toby Stokes (Principal) on 022 536 8035 if there is a positive case within your household or your child is confirmed positive.  You can also email your child’s teacher and include me in this email (

Follow this flow chart to determine what your steps are as the parent of child who is positive with COVID OR if you yourself are positive:


- If your child is well, then they can come to school unless there is a positive household contact

- For those who are not able to attend school online learning is being provided by teachers
