As of today, we are working as a school under both the Delta Level 2 requirements and the Orange Traffic Light Framework.

As of only last night I received the detail of the latter from the Ministry of Education and I am still working through the implications of this for school. Frustratingly the details to date have not been clear and been changing almost daily! However, it has now been confirmed that until the end of this year schools are to stick with the Delta Level 2 requirements for their day to day operation, so that is the same as we have been operating all this term. The Orange Traffic Light Framework impacts on non-curiculum related school activity and after school hours.

Because of this, our End of Year Picnic cannot go ahead and sadly we will not be able to farewell our Year 8’s with their parents present on site at this. We will celebrate our Year 8’s graduation from primary school as a whole school on Monday 13 instead.
