 Tēnā koutou katoa

 We hope that you are managing well in your Alert Level 4 Bubbles.  Thanks   for all of the support that you are giving to the teachers and  classroom   programmes. We couldn’t do it without you!!

There have been lots of reminders from the Government and Ministry of Health about Wellbeing and the importance of family time.


  • Focus on today, be present whether it be with your children, whanau, work or yourself.
  • Resist the temptation to think too far ahead.  We can not control that.
  • Sort your routine and plan a timetable each day where the whole family can see it.
    • Include fun activities,  a walk, board games, bake off, nerf gun fights,  family challenges, the list is endless.
  • Don’t sweat the small stuff.  Tomorrow is another day.
  • It is okay to take an easy option when things are tough.  TV, iPad games, etc
  • Prioritise and resist distractions.  Keep to routines.
  • Keep in contact with your family and friends.
  • ‘Be kind whenever possible, it is always possible’  – Dalai lama

EPro8 Challenge
If you are looking for a good activity your students can complete at home, we are going to be running the EPro8 Challenge – Lockdown Edition starting on Monday.  And it comes with the chance of winning a one of our brand new EPro8 Electronics Starter Kits.

This challenge won’t be using the EPro8 Equipment that we normally use, but instead the challenge will be completed using a ream of paper and a roll of sellotape.

The teams will be family teams all from the same household.  Parents and siblings can all be part of the team.

Entry is free, and it is open to any of your students.

Further details and registration is here:—lockdown-edition.html
