Moving to Alert Level Two

Kia ora Parents.

Monday 23 March seems so long ago but this was the day the Prime Minister announced that we were heading into Level 3 and transitioning into Level 4 on Wednesday 25 March at 11.59pm.

So much has happened since then, and now we find ourselves heading back into Level 2. 

Thank you for your ongoing partnership, your encouraging words, your faithful prayers, and your generous spirit in supporting others struggling financially.

We are not there yet, but we seem to be approaching the finishing line, if we can keep doing our bit to follow the heath and safety measures that are in place.

In this email I would like to give you the general plan going forward.

For the rest of the week, the pupils already registered under Alert Level Three will continue their on-site learning at school. If you have any questions about this, please contact Kerry at

We are looking forward to welcoming back ALL pupils to HCS on Monday 18 May at our usual starting times. 
Please be re-assured that ALL pupils are safe to attend school. However, it will look different as there have been additional health and safety practices put into place to ensure we are looking after each other. 
The only people that cannot attend school will be pupils/parents/staff who are sick (this includes a head cold, blocked ears, cough, sneezing, chills and a fever), 
have any COVID-19 symptoms, are in isolation, or are awaiting the result of a COVID test.

I have asked the teachers to reduce ZOOM meetings and learning material for Thursday and Friday to provide enough time for them to prepare for pupils’ re-entry and the rest of the Term 2 teaching programme. This will hopefully give you some time to catch up any incomplete work and/or enjoy having some relaxed family time together. 

Further information will be given regarding drop off/pick up procedures, what pupils need to bring, and the return of school-loaned chrome books.

Many blessings and ng? mihi nui.

May God continue to be your strength, your comfort, and your rock on which you stand (Psalm 18:2 – The LORD is my ROCK!)
