Get to it Te Mata kids!This is a message for the kids of New Zealand.
I’ve been asked by lots of you whether the Tooth Fairy and the Easter Bunny are an essential service (I even got asked in a press conference today!) I have good news, they are! But because we’re all in isolation at the moment, the Easter Bunny might not make it to every house this year (they probably have to look after their own Bunny family too). So just in case, I’m wondering if you’ll help me create an Easter egg hunt for all the children in your neighbourhood?
You can draw your own Easter egg, or you can colour in the one that some of my clever friends helped to make. All you have to do is colour it in or decorate it, and pop it in your window for other kids to find. I'd also love to see your designs.
If you email them to firstname.lastname@example.org, or share them on social media using the hashtag #NZEggHunt, I'll pop a few of them here and on Facebook over the Easter weekend. Have fun everyone! ... See MoreSee Less

Olivia has been busy at home today!
She sketched her design, made it with material and then realised it didn’t work with what she was trying to achieve so changed it up a bit.. her idea was “something to wear to the races”. Olivia created her outfit from a horse feed bag, some staples and twine.
We think she has done an outstanding job!
Update - Leo’s outfit is finished now too! ... See MoreSee Less

Dear school community, many of you would have already heard that the government just announced that NZ has moved to a Level 3 and in 48 hours will move to Level 4. This will mean that school will be closed from tomorrow onwards for all children for the next 4 weeks minimum. This excludes those who parents have been identified as essential workers they have an additional day to organise. More updates to follow. ... See MoreSee Less

With so much information and misinformation swirling around about COVID-19, I wanted to share with you what will happen if we were to have a case in our school community. We have been planning for this and are in a position to respond quickly.
As soon as a case is confirmed in our immediate school community (eg. a student, staff member, or member of their household), the Medical Officer of Health and Ministry of Education will inform me about this, and we will work together to get quick and clear messaging out to you.
If there was a case confirmed of someone in our school, we will likely be asked to close temporarily by the Medical Officer of Health. This will allow time for close contacts to be traced, appropriate testing to be undertaken, and a careful clean of the school to be undertaken.
If our school does need to close temporarily, we have a plan in place to support student’s learning.
We know COVID-19 feels scary and of course people are concerned for the wellbeing of our children. Please be assured that with no case confirmed in our school, your children are safe here.
Good hygiene is a priority at our school, and we are reinforcing this regularly with all students and staff. We know that practicing good hygiene is still the best thing we can all do to prevent illness.
We are getting the most up to date advice and guidance so that we can confidently make informed decisions about the safety and wellbeing of our school community.
