25/03/2010 COVID 19 Update


— Allenvale School Closed —


Dear Parents, Caregivers and Whānau,

Today is the last day we will be working from the base school until we are reopened by the Ministry of Education. I have put up the school closed signs, something that I thought I would never do. This is an incredibly unsettling time but one we will all get through with the support of our whole community.

School holidays have changed and will now begin next Monday 30th March until Wednesday 15th April. This incorporates the Easter holidays Friday 10th April – Tuesday 14th April. This will give our staff some time to settle their families into the new routine as well as having a short break to catch up on what has been a busy couple of weeks. I would like to thank the staff for all the work they have done in preparation for this closure and the support they have given myself and the leadership team especially over the last few days.

If you require any assistance over the coming weeks please email your class teacher in the first instance and we can then connect you to the appropriate support either from within the school team or an external agency. Please remember you are not alone over this time.

Staff will be making regular contact with families over the self isolation time either by email, SeeSaw or phone. We would love students to add comments to their SeeSaw posts and share photos with their teachers of what they are getting up to. Again if you haven’t connected with Seesaw can you please get in touch with your class teacher and we can provide support for this.

He waka eke noa (We are all in this together).

Stay well,

Jenny Gosney
Acting Principal


COVID 19 – Some useful links for our community

We would like to offer our families and whānau a selection of (hopefully) useful links and resources for our students here and on facebook.
We hope to grow this list over the next weeks.
