Term Two Week 8
Students working from home Week 11
As we look forward to Term 2 and a return to regular timetables and Ākina Groups, we have made the decision to have students learning from home in week 11, between 11 -14 April. This will then lead into the school holidays, giving students and staff three weeks, of non face-to-face time, and helping to break any developing patterns of infection. If for any reasons, your student is unable to work from home, please contact their House Dean, so that a suitable learning space can be provided for them at school.
We are excited to be able to have our first Ākina times for 2022 on Thursday 7th April and Friday 8th April, at the end of block two for 20mins. We will finally be able to connect face-to-face, ahead of Term 2.
It is with a heavy heart that we accept the resignation of the very long standing staff member, Noeline Stewart. We acknowledge that this has not been an easy decision for Noeline to make, and we wish her the very best with her plans moving forward. Unfortunately, at this time we are unable to come together to celebrate Noeline's service to HGHS, we will do this once the COVID restrictions allow.
Reporting an absence
Please continue to let us know if a student is away sick or isolating, by going to the contact us page on our website or by phoning the school. It's really important for safety reasons that we keep track of those who are sick, working from home or attending school onsite. If you have an questions or concerns regarding your students attendance please contact our Attendance Officer, Sue Eaton on firstname.lastname@example.org or 06 873 1133.
