Update to Lunch Distribution

From Tuesday 14 September students are to pick up lunch packs from one of five points around school.  

To spread the students out across the school, the distribution points have been given a designated House colour, as per the list below.  

  1. Blue: on the back deck of the 1s block (facing the Student Centre)
  2. Purple: on the front deck of the 1s block
  3. Green: on the front deck of the 40s block, outside room 48
  4. Gold: on the front deck of the 40s block, outside room 42
  5. Special Dietary Requirements: collect lunch from Te Rourou as usual

Ākina Coaches will give out a wristband of your House colour, which you must be wearing to be able to collect lunch. The Deans will be at each spot checking wristbands and ensure physical distancing.

Please note there will be no soup at morning tea time.

Junior Whānau Hui Postponement

It was our intention to invite whānau in to meet with subject teachers to discuss junior students' learning late in Term 3. Due to ongoing disruptions, we are postponing this event until Hawke's Bay is at Level 1. 

We will update you with further information as soon as possible, we expect that the hui is likely to take place early in Term 4.

School Calendar Updated

As we adjust life at level 2 for a bit longer, our school calendar has also had to adjust.  Changing alert levels has had a ripple effect right through to the end of the year, so we encourage you all to go and check our the updated calendar.
