Nau mai, haere mai, talofa lava, malo e lelei, bula vinaka, kia orana, warm greetings

I would like to start this week’s newsletter by thanking you all for your cooperation and understanding in moving into our Alert Level 2 Health plan. Our students have demonstrated a smooth transition here at school. As a school we have, where possible, tried to reschedule any events affected by Level 2 guidelines. The main events affected have been the production, school formal and multiple sporting codes.

I would like to congratulate Angela Smith and all cast members on the outstanding performance of Hairspray. The crew and cast performed the first and only performance last Tuesday night to the public…I was lucky enough to watch. The level of performance was of the highest standard…to see the students enjoying themselves was fantastic reward for all of the effort and energy to prepare and produce this wonderful production.

We will await further guidance from the Government around future COVID alert levels. I feel we are well prepared regardless of what situation we may end up in. In a worst case scenario, if we were to end up again at Alert Level 4, it is important to ensure all contact information is up to date and that connectivity and devices are all in good working order.

It was great to meet many of our parent community at our recent parent teacher interviews. It was great to see so many parents and students attend to discuss their progress with our teaching staff. I would like thank our hard working teachers on that day who started work at 7.30am and worked through to 8.00pm to complete all of the interviews.

It is pleasing to see most of our students will have the opportunity to participate in many sporting codes over the weekend. This is such an important part in our students’ wellbeing. I congratulate all those coaches and parents who have had to make many sacrifices to ensure our young people are able to participate this weekend.

I am sure next time I communicate via a newsletter we will be back in Alert Level 1, enjoying many of the activities we are so accustomed to.
