Kia ora tatou,

As one of the Deputy Principals, I am fielding questions and concerns. 

Let us all breathe. We all knew that it was coming. We have been complacent.  

Tomorrow we will be vigilant as your children come back into our care.

To ensure we are looking after staff, the following procedures are there to look after your children.

1. All gates will be locked during School hours.

2. The school gate will be locked during school hours and these include the the gates that come off the staff carpark.

3. All staff will need to enter through the front gate.

4. Staff who are feeling unwell need to stay home and isolate as per the MOH guidelines.

5. Staff are also asked to sign in so that we have a record of who is on the school grounds.


Kia haumaru tatou,

Meri August

Seesaw is a platform for student engagement that inspires students of all ages to do their best, and saves teachers time! Students use creative tools to take pictures, draw, record videos and more to capture learning in a portfolio. Teachers find or create activities to share with students.The Seesaw platform is used for homework activities as well as in class work.

Parents are also notified by the class teacher about classroom and school activities and events via the Seesaw platform. Parents can also Seesaw their child’s teacher.


Families only have access to their child’s journal. This means you will see student work tagged with your child’s name and posts the teacher tags with ‘Everyone’. Families will also be able to see any comment made by another user on their child’s journal posts.
