Masking up for the start of Term 3

Kia ora tātou

In previous years we have found there is an increase in winter illnesses in schools at the start of Term 3 as students bring back infections after travelling and socialising during the holidays. This year cases of COVID-19 are increasing in most parts of the country, and we are also seeing high numbers of other winter illnesses.

For the start of Term 3, 2022, the Ministry of Education and Ministry of Health strongly recommend that all schools amend their mask policy for the first four weeks of term to require mask wearing in all indoor settings (where it will not have a significant impact on teaching and learning – see below) for students in Years 4 and above.

Please make sure that students come to school ready to wear masks. Students should bring masks from home. If students cannot bring masks to school there will be a limited supply of masks for students who are unable to bring one from home.

Thank you for your support in protecting our school community.
