Nau Mai, Haere Mai!

Dear Families

We hope you are all doing well in your family bubbles! We have heard the good news from our Prime Minister that the Auckland Region will shift to Alert Level 2. This means that all students can return to school from Monday 8th March.

Once again … THANK YOU to our families, to our children and to our dedicated and hard working staff. Together, we have ensured that our children’s learning and wellbeing is cared for. THANK YOU for the resilience shown in these changing times, for the excellence shown in home learning activities, for the kindnesses shown to each other through zoom meetings, emails and phone calls and for the unity of being one school community that continues to learn, love and serve no matter where we are or who we are with!

Please find below the Alert Level 2 guidelines and expectations that will be in place at school from Monday 8th March.

Enjoy this coming weekend and we look forward to seeing you all again on Monday.

Every Blessing

Our Health and Safety plans are all in place for Alert Level 2 and please be assured that we will continue to do everything we can to keep our Holy Trinity whānau safe and well.

Sadly, we will not be able to celebrate Liturgies, Masses or Assemblies in Taamaua until we shift to Alert Level 1.

Face Coverings
Face coverings are another way we can help keep ourselves and others safe. Children and young people do not need to wear face coverings at school. If your child/ren wants to wear a face mask at school, that’s absolutely fine.

QR Code Posters
We’re continuing contact tracing by having QR code posters in our Reception Area, so please check in every time you come onsite. We’ll also keep a visitor register for anyone who doesn’t have the app, and also for anyone who comes onsite for a period of time.

Our school HTCPS Home Learning google site will still be up and running. Our weekly Liturgy and Assembly is also available for viewing.

We are proud of you Holy Trinity Whānau and are full of thanks for the way you accept the challenges and uncertainty of this time and just “get on with things” in such a positive way! We can do this together in unity/kotahitanga and with resilience/ngāwari and compassion/arohanui!

Every Blessing
