Start of Term 3 – Masking Up

Kia ora te whānau.  

We hope you have managed to have a refreshing holiday break.  We are looking forward to welcoming back to school all our tamariki/ākonga this coming Monday 25th July.

In previous years we have found there is an increase in winter illnesses in schools at the start of Term 3 as students bring back infections after travelling and socialising during the holidays. This year cases of COVID-19 are increasing in most parts of the country and we are also seeing high numbers of other winter illnesses.

Public health advice clearly shows that mask wearing is a strong tool in the defence against the transmission of COVID-19 and other airborne respiratory viruses. Masks are effective at preventing transmission of COVID-19 to a Contact or preventing transmission of COVID-19 from a Case. Masks work alongside other measures we have in place to protect students and staff.

For this reason, from the start of Term 3, 2022, the Ministry of Education and Ministry of Health strongly recommend that all schools and kura advise their community that for the first four weeks of term, mask wearing will be strongly encouraged in all indoor settings (where it will not have a significant impact on teaching and learning – see below) for students in Years 4 and above.

This recommendation does not include any situation where mask wearing might not be practicable, such as while eating and drinking, where it will have a significant impact on teaching and learning (for example, students with particular learning needs), certain activities such as singing or drama performance on stage, and PE. In these situations, particular attention will be paid to ensuring there is good ventilation during the activity and physical distancing where practicable.

We know that some of our tamariki/ākonga are exempt from wearing a mask. If they have an exemption card or a letter from their health provider, or we have agreed that mask wearing is not practicable for them, we will support them to not wear a mask.

Please make sure that tamariki/ākonga come to school ready to wear masks from Monday. Students should bring masks from home, but if this is not possible, there will be a limited supply of masks available for students who are unable to bring one.

For all parents, caregivers and visitors who come on site, please wear a mask while on our school premises.

Thank you for your ongoing support of our school during these ever challenging times.

Noho ora mai,
