Shortened Days for remainder of Term One

As the number of COVID cases across the school community continues to grow, the decision was made to shorten the length of the school day. This will provide extra planning and preparation time for staff working with students whilst they are isolating at home.  The school day now ends at 2.30pm.  The Flaxmere bus will leave at 2.35pm, the Havelock North bus will leave at 2.45pm, and the Waipāwa bus will leave at 2.55pm.  If you have any questions about the buses please contact ge@hastingsgirls.com

Office Hours

In line with our shortened school day, our school office will now be closing each day at 3.30pm.
