Start of 2022 and Red Light Setting

25 January 2022

Kia ora whānau/caregivers

Happy New Year to you all and welcome to 2022 at Sacred Heart College.

As you are aware all of NZ is in the red alert level.

School is opening as planned but there are a few changes to how we will be operating, and some activities have been modified to ensure we are following the guidelines from both the government and the Ministry of Education.

Any changes will be updated regularly on the school website so please refer to this often.

Key points to be aware of:

  • Masks must be worn at all times by all students and staff. These need to be provided by individuals, the school does not have a supply.
  • Assemblies and other large gatherings cannot occur
  • If students are unwell, they must stay at home
  • Hygiene, ventilation, and distancing protocols will be followed

Key Dates:

Monday 31 Jan:

  • Welcome for new students (8.45am) – all new students and Year 13 peer supporters and leaders to attend. Students to assemble on lawn.
  • No whānau/caregivers to attend
  • School finishes for Year 9 students at 3.20pm

Tuesday 1 Feb:

  • All Year 9 students and Year 13 peer supporters and leaders to attend (8.45am–3.20pm)

Wednesday 2 Feb:

  • Korero ā Whānau virtual meetings (9.00am–1.00pm)
  • No classes
  • Bookings open Friday 28 Jan from 8.00am - separate email to follow

Thursday 3 Feb:

  • Korero ā Whānau virtual meetings (1.00pm – 5.00pm)

Friday 4 Feb:

  • All students in school, school finishes at 1.30pm

Monday 7 Feb - Waitangi Day

Tuesday 8 Feb:

  • Normal classes resume (8.45am–2.35pm)

Whilst it is not mandatory for students to be vaccinated to attend school, we do need to collect this data for students to be eligible for trips, sports etc.  We will be collecting this data from this week and will be sending out a separate email regarding how to share this information with us.

I appreciate that the changes may cause some stress and pressure on students and whānau, but please be assured that school is a great (and safe) place to be and we are looking forward to working with your student in 2022.

Ngā mihi
