Kia ora whānau
Thank you for your ongoing support and encouragement of the people and the activities that have taken place at SHC in Term 2.
We have had a busy term that has been impacted hugely by staff and student illness and we are pleased with what we have been able to achieve together, despite these challenges.
On Friday 8 July we will be closing the school for the end of term after period 4 at 1.30pm.
Supervision for students is available if required, until 3.20pm. Please email [email protected] by end of day Wednesday to arrange this for your student. Buses will be running at the normal time.
Blessings to you all for a restful break, I look forward to continuing our work together in Term 3.

Kia ora koutou,
This is an update on what the move to Orange means for our school from Monday 2 May.
At Orange, face masks are no longer required at school. However public health advice is that masks continue to be strongly encouraged when indoors. Wearing a mask is a key health measure that slows the spread of COVID-19 in indoor settings. For that reason, we ask that visitors to the school, including parents and whānau, wear a mask whenever they are indoors on school grounds.
We also ask that your student continues to bring a mask to school every day. There may be times that we’ll ask them to wear a mask too, for example when we are having an assembly in the PAC. If there are a high number of cases at school or in the community, we may ask that masks are worn in classrooms for a time.
At Orange, students are required to wear a face mask on school or public transport.
We will continue to keep all the other health measures in place at school that we know slow the spread of COVID-19. These include ensuring our indoor spaces are well-ventilated, maintaining good hand hygiene and cough and sneeze etiquette, appropriate physical distancing whenever we can and, most importantly, staying home if we are sick.
We are looking forward to a few less restrictions and returning to school life that is a bit closer to normal.
