Term 1, Week 8, 2020 (Friday 27 March)
He mihi mahana ki a koutou katoa - warm greetings to all.
What a week! Hopefully you and your families are starting to make the adjustment to this whole self-isolation thing.
As teachers and as a school we are trying to navigate what learning from home looks like, how much work to set, how much is too much etc. Obviously no two families are the same and what works for one family, would not be right for another. The main message of this newsletter is to relax about home learning. If your child is keen to do the work, then encourage them. Otherwise, do what is right for your family. Teachers are available during school hours to help them out and give them feedback. Remember to email them with any questions. Parents are not expected to be teachers, and teachers are happy to answer any questions you or your child/ren have.
Remember we can stay connected as a community by joining the community facebook page here. This is separate to our school page and is a closed group where people can post photos etc and we try to bring our community together.
Take care everyone, noho ora mai.
