Covid-19 Update: IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO ALL PARENTS/CAREGIVERS
Tēnā koutou katoa
As a country we are faced with an unprecedented event. Over the past fortnight the spread of COVID-19 has moved rapidly and we have been met with uncertainty. We will continue to face these daily challenges in the next month. I thank the whole College community and particularly our staff and students.
Our staff and students have learned to adapt quickly each time there is an announcement. Our staff have kept normality by continuing on as usual with their teaching and keeping routines in their classes. They have also followed the practices as outlined by the Ministry of Health and Ministry of Education.
This morning in our daily staff briefing, I asked staff to prioritise their wellbeing, and that of their whānau, as we move to Alert Level 4. This is an opportunity for our staff to make the necessary arrangements for their whanau.
Since the Prime Minister’s announcement yesterday I would like to reiterate some elements of importance.
I ask that you all continue to pray for our College community, our country and our world. It is important that we continue to offer our prayers, love and support for all. Reach out to family, friends as well as neighbours. Be kind and compassionate to each other. The coming weeks are an opportunity for whanau to gather for prayer, mindfulness and incorporate gratefulness into your daily lives. Remind your son to keep the faith and do the MAHI. We all must play our part and work to overcome the challenges that lie ahead. May the love of our Lord’s grace and peace be with you all and keep you safe.
