COVID-19 Lockdown

REVISED TERM DATES

The school holidays have been changed by the Ministry of Education.  Term 1 now end on Friday 27th March.

School holidays start on Monday 30th March and will run through until Tuesday 14th April inclusive.  There will be NO remote learning provided by teachers during this holiday.

Term 2 starts on Wednesday 15th April (we will still be in lockdown), and all students will need to check their emails and Google Classrooms to access their learning.
