Online learning and support during Covid-19 Alert Level 4

As we all adjust to our new situation, it is important that our akonga feel cared for and supported in their learning. Over the next 3 days, our akonga will move to an online learning programme. Today, contact will be made through our Ohu mentor and subject teachers, to connect your kohine with her mahi, accessed through the Google Drive. Should online learning be extended beyond these next 3 days, a timetable will be issued in which all akonga will have daily contact with their Ohu mentor and sit 3 virtual online learning classes a day.

Please be assured that all teachers and akonga have been prepared for these situations. It was timely that in our curriculum meeting yesterday afternoon, all teachers went through our directed study, online learning preparations. In this way, we can ensure you that learning and progress continues. If you have any concerns or if your kohine is experiencing anxiety through this online learning programme please make contact with her Ohu teacher. Much love and blessings to you all.

Update on COVID-19 Alert Level 4 procedures for students 

Kia ora koutou

Our normal routine at Hukarere Girls’ College will change from tomorrow as a result of the Prime Minister’s announcement this evening that New Zealand is going to a COVID-19 Alert Level 4 lockdown for at least three days (Auckland and Coromandel will be seven days).

We want to assure whānau and caregivers that your girls and our students are our top priority, and we will do all we can to ensure they are cared for and safe during these unusual times.

We are working on an online learning structure for the next few days and our Deputy Principal Stephanie Clifton will be in touch with the details.

Unfortunately, at Alert Leve 4, we have been advised by the Ministry of Education that the Hostel will be closed and parents should make arrangements to bring their children home. However, the exception will be if there are boarders who cannot safely return home and who must continue to be cared for (for example, international students). All requirements of Alert Level 4 will be followed at all times and your child will be safe.

We will keep you informed of any developments, but in the meantime keep you and your families safe.

Ma te Atua tatou e manaakii, kia u ki te pai.
