School Donations and Costs for 2020

We are pleased to let you know that starting from this year all school costs and donations can be
paid via Kindo. This is an online programme that many of you may already be registered for
through your Ezi–Lunch orders.
This will continue to grow and in term 2 will allow for even more options including permission
slips online.
If you are not registered yet go to kindo.co.nz and follow the process.

KINDO - Fastest way to pay

No need to hunt for payment details, write cheques, raid the piggy-bank or visit the school office. Pay for all your students' needs by clicking on the item you need. And we're open 24/7. Click. Pay. Fast

Payments can still be made through online banking, eftpos or cash at the school office.

Thanks so much for your support.

Coronavirus - Message from Ministry Education

We are looking forward to welcoming all our students back on February 7th.

With the growing concerns around coronavirus, we have received the following notice from the Ministry of Education.
We would appreciate hearing from you if you have traveled to China over the holiday break.
Kind regards
Julie Hepburn
Principal


"As you will have seen in the media the situation is rapidly evolving internationally concerning the coronavirus.
 
This is a new virus and its specific nature is currently unclear, however it appears that you can have the virus at an early stage and not be showing any symptoms.  This incubation period is currently considered to be 14 days. 
 
Children and young people are currently returning to classrooms.  The health of students and staff is a priority for all.  I encourage you to err on the side of caution and here are some steps you can take.
  • As always anyone who is unwell should not be at school or at their early learning service. If you have a particular concern about any child, student or staff member, please urge parents or the staff member to contact Healthline at 0800 611 116 or their GP for medical advice. Healthline has translators and interpreters available 24/7 in 150 languages and they do have Mandarin and Cantonese speaking staff available.
     
  • If a student still attends school while showing symptoms the Principal of a state school can preclude them if they believe on reasonable grounds they may have a communicable disease (Section 19 Education Act). The student has to stay away for the infectious period of the specific disease. For private schools, Section 19 of the Education Act does not apply.  Principals can request that a student with an infectious disease or is suspected of having an infectious disease, does not attend.
     
  • You can request that a staff member with an infectious disease or is suspected of having an infectious disease, does not attend.
     
  • For any staff member or student who may be at high risk of exposure because they have recently been to China or have been in close contact with someone confirmed with the virus, I encourage you to ask that the staff member or parent/caregiver of the student delay the start of their school year for 14 days and voluntarily stay away.
     
Iona Holsted
Secretary for Education"
