SCHOOL ADMIN BLOCK REFURBISHMENT
We finally have some traction on our Admin Block refurbishment which will begin next Monday 2nd September. The Ministry Of Education, Hampton Jones, MIRO construction, Architects, Board, staff and other stakeholders have been involved in the process to get this up and running since 2016. Health and Safety for our school community has been at the forefront of this process to ensure we can continue to function safely and effectively as a school and continue to provide quality educational programmes.
Please read the following carefully so you know where and when our office/admin block will be relocated. A map is attached.
- The office staff, Principal and Deputy Principals are now situated in buildings accessible from Douglas Street. All enquiries, sign in, sign out for students etc will be run from this area.
- Signs will be posted around the perimeter of the school and the construction area will be set down and isolated to outside Rooms 13 and 14 (beside the Kohanga Reo)
- Considerations include where you might meet and/or pick up your children from week 8 – Monday 9th September.
- Parking – we hope that our parking will not be adversely affected as we are aware we have limited parking already. In saying this, it would be ideal to allow for more time in the initial phases of this commencement.
- We will plan to have phones and communication lines open throughout this process but if there are some disruptions we will communicate this to our community as quickly as possible via email and our website.
Updates will follow as the admin block moves to our temporary premises. Look out for these. Any immediate queries please email the school office.
Drop off and pick up of students
We have had some concerns from staff and parents about the drop off and pick up of children. Please ensure you are not double parking or parking illegally when coming to the school to drop off or pick up your child/children. This may cause incidents involving our children and families so please be mindful of others when parking around the school.
You will be aware of the recent Measles outbreak in New Zealand. Auckland Regional Public Health Services are advising all people to make sure that they are fully immunised; if you are unsure or are not fully immunised, it is recommended that you should get vaccinated.
In the next couple of weeks we will be updating our student immunisation records and will be in touch if we require any further information.
