Dear Parents and Caregivers
A large attendance is anticipated for the Jonah Lomu memorial service at Eden Park, on Monday 30 November between 1pm and 3pm.
After discussions with Auckland Transport and Eden Park personnel I have decided to close the school early at 2pm on Monday 30 November. This will allow our students to return home safely prior to the crowd exiting at Eden Park.
I have been informed that there will not be any road closures and as such parents can still access the school however expect much activity in the area.
If you are unable to make care arrangements for your child at this time then please either email the school office or contact your child’s teacher and we will provide supervision at school until 3pm.
Thank you to all those families who provided feedback on their child's writing. The students very much enjoyed receiving and reading your responses.

An overview of what we will be studying this term is available here.
We have also included links to Ministry of Education resources on how you can support your child's learning at home.
We highly recommend the NETSAFE.ORG.NZ website as an excellent source of information and advice for parents and students on how to keep safe when online.
Our main advice to parents is to remove online devices from their children at bedtime - the vast majority of incidents occur late at night when students have unsupervised access.
