SHC Heartbeat Wk 6 Term 2

Teacher Only Day - Friday 29 May

25 May 2020

Kia ora Parents and Caregivers,

There will be a professional learning and development meeting for all staff on Friday 29 May.

The school will be closed for instruction for all students on this day. Parents are asked to make alternate arrangements for their daughter/s. Students can use this time to ensure they are up to date with their learning – some resources will be made available to them online but there will not be any Zoom meetings on that day.

We appreciate the support of parents and the community with regard to our staff being given the opportunity to engage in this professional learning and development.

Week 7 Update

25 May 2020

Kia ora whānau

The return of staff and students to school has gone really smoothly and it has been brilliant to see how excited the students have been to get back to their learning and social routines.

We know some of you are still feeling a bit anxious about sending your student back to school, which is understandable, given everything we have been through these past 2 months.

It’s really important students do return to school, not just for their learning but also their health and wellbeing.

Our school is safe.

Even though there is a low risk of the virus getting in the school gates to start with, we will be keeping up our hygiene practices and other public health measures as an extra precaution for as long as we’re at Alert Level 2

  • Uniform pickups will be on Tuesday 19 May by students before school, lunchtime and after school
  • Check your jewellery please
  • Bring your own device if possible
  • Students need to go directly to their tutor class by 8.45am – do not go to lockers
  • In their tutor room they need to follow the instructions from their tutor teacher regarding hand sanitising and seating
  • Tutor time will include key messages about our processes at school under Alert Level 2
  • The rest of the day will be as per their timetabled classes – week B
  • Practice good hygiene prior to arriving at school and bring your own hand sanitiser if you can.


  • Drop offs and pickups of all students must be made outside the school premises
  • If you need to contact the school please do so via phone or email – visits to the school site in an emergency only
  • Buses will be running and you would have received an email yesterday about their processes and routes
  • Uniform pick ups will be on Tuesday 19 May by students only before school, lunchtime and after school
  • Please keep your student at home if they are unwell.

As we have done in Alert Level 3, you can be assured that in Alert Level 2 we will know who is at school, who our staff and students have been in close contact with, and take appropriate measures to keep everyone safe.

Stay well

SHC Sports Day - Monday 2 March

We had a wonderful day on Monday.  With much enthusiasm students took part in events ranging from triple jump, sprints, shot put to gumboot throwing.   The rain cut the day short but we will catch up on those events next week.  It was great to see parents and whānau able to attend.
