Tēnā koutou e te whānau o te Kura ā Rohe o Whaingaroa.  

The latest school newsletter is now on our website, please click on the link if you have not read it.  Closing Kura Teina is not a lockdown situation, but a necessary step to give Kura Teina staff time to get well and come back to school.   Over the past week, we have had over 50% of Kura Teina teachers away either sick, as close contacts, or supporting a member of their whanau who have tested positive.   This panui is a follow up to let whānau know what is happening in Weeks 5 and 6 and what this means for our Kura Teina tamariki.   

Home Learning

From Monday 7th March, Home Learning programmes will be accessible via our school website for whanau to access. These programmes will support your children at home, simply log into our school website and click on the following portal buttons:

  • Learning from Home MOE 
  • Home Learning on TVNZ 
  • Kura Teina (from Monday 7th March 2022)

From Wednesday 9th March, our teachers will be available for daily online check-ins. Please use our online learning portal via our school website to access these, or email the classroom teacher for any other queries. 

On Site Learning – Bubble Classes

These classes will run for the children of whānau who have essential workers in their households. There will be two Classes with two school adults in each class (two teachers or one teacher and one learning assistant):

  • Years 0-3 English and Maori Medium:    B Block (at the front entrance to school)
  • Years 4-6 English and Maori Medium:    C3 / C2 (adjacent to the junior playgrounds)

Students who require extra support 

If your child is currently receiving extra support from our wonderful learning assistants and/or outside agencies, and they are at school because they are essential worker’s tamariki then this support will continue.  The senior leadership team will be on site daily so if you have any queries please phone 07 8258140, or email office@raglanarea.school.nz or direct to the classroom teacher. 

Kia noho haumaru, kia pai! Stay safe and keep well.
