Covid-19 Alert Level 2

Kia ora Whanau

As you are all probably aware, we have moved into Alert Level 2 again. School is open for all students at alert level 2.

We ask that you drop your child/children off at the school gate in the morning and revert back to the pick up routine we had in place two weeks ago.

Please keep your child/children at home if the feel unwell and seek medical advice if needed. If you need to talk with anyone please phone the office. We will be reminding students about physical distancing, hand hygiene, cough and sneeze etiquette and we ask you to talk to your child as well. COVID-19 continues to be a factor we need to consider, and we assure you we have a robust plan and will do everything we need to for your children. If the situation changes, we will be in touch again.

Please contact us if you have any concerns or questions.

Principal Appointment

It is with great pleasure that the Board of Trustees of Waihopai School can announce that our new principal will be Mr Andrew Smith. Currently at Windsor North School. Andrew will be a familiar face to many in our community, especially to those who have been involved in Zone Sports or the Tri-Nations sports events. Andrew brings a wealth of educational and leadership experience to the role; and the Board is excited to be working alongside Andrew as together we look to the future.

The Board would like to thank staff, students and caregivers for their input and patience during this process. We know that it feels as if this has been a long time in coming, but we are extremely confident that it will have been worth the wait. Andrew will officially begin on the first day of Term 2, 2021.
