Term One Week 4
Covid Red Light - Phase 3 Lunch Arrangements
In response to the latest changes in recommendations, lunch will be served to all students from outside Te Rourou from Monday. This will mean that while all students will remain in their Hubs/Kāhui during lesson times, they will be free to move around the school during interval and lunchtime. However, please do note that:
- Masks must still be worn at all times other than when eating.
- Physical distancing is still important and must be practiced whenever possible.
- No students may eat or socialise inside the school buildings during interval and lunchtime unless it is raining.
- Special meals may be collected from inside Te Rourou.
Smart Passports will be distributed next week to senior students. These will support students as they track their progress towards their 'Big' academic goal for the year. Teachers will be meeting with students and supporting them to shape their goals and action plans. Regular checkpoints to reflect, review and reshape plans throughout the year have also been scheduled.
Reminder from our Bus Drivers
Please wear your masks correctly and keep them on the whole time you're on the bus.

We are concerned about a current Tiktok trend in which people choke each other until one passes out. We discourage all students from joining in on this extremely dangerous trend, particularly if the individual has underlying health issues.
Kapa Haka Update
Kapa Haka preparation is currently on hold until students and staff at HGHS and HBHS can work together in person.
As soon as there is an indication of when alert levels will be adjusted, our schools and our tutors will have a hui to plan how we can set preparations in motion.
Student / Whānau Contact Information
It is important we have up to date contact details for students and their Whānau. Please contact the school if your details have changed or if you are not receiving Text messages or emails from the school.
