Waipu Primary School - Covid-19 Update

Kia ora koutou,

As you will, by now, all be aware, the Prime Minister has announced today that as the positive cases of coronavirus have now reached over 100 and as there is now evidence that there is community transmission, we are now at Level 3 in our response to the virus and that we will move to Level 4 within 48 hours. 

This means that, as of today, Waipu School and grounds are closed to all, with the exception of those children whose parents work in essential services.  

Those children may come to school tomorrow and then from Wednesday onwards all schools and early childhood centres will close. It is expected that schools will remain closed for at least, the next four weeks.

Buses will not run tomorrow.   

Your child's teacher will be in touch regarding providing learning programmes.

Noho ora mai,

Keep safe and stay healthy

Julie

Welcome...

Welcome to Waipu Primary School. We look forward to your active participation in your child's schooling.

Our school, pupils, staff, parents and local community work together to create a caring, stimulating and challenging learning environment. "Quality is what we do around here". Your children will receive an education based on the national curriculum enhanced by creative activities, sports and cultural events. We are proud of this school and its achievements.

For the parent child teacher partnership to be successful we need to be well informed about our students. The staff meet with parents early in the year for a brief chat and at formal interviews in June and November. Should you have any questions or concerns please make the Teacher your first contact. If you would like an interview at any time of the year please make an appointment so that the teachers can have ready any information to answer your queries. Many aspects of our lives affect children.

Any major changes or happenings communicated to the teachers are confidential and will allow the teacher to handle the school situation for your child with understanding and caring.

To adhere to the Privacy Act, the school may have to request your permission for information to be passed on to school related services.

We would welcome your support should this be necessary, as any referral would be made for the best interests of the student. Examples - Speech Language Therapist, Resource Teacher of Learning and Behaviour (RTLB). You will be consulted from the outset if a referral is being considered.

Your child and family will gain greatest benefit from this school by supporting our endeavours in these ways so the school will be an effective learning environment for us all:

  • Listening to the child(ren) talk about their activities.
  • Sharing the positive aspects of interest and enjoyment.
  • Discussing concerns and contacting the school if necessary.
  • Setting aside time for homework.
  • Contacting the school for information to solve a problem, share a concern.
  • Contacting the school when you are pleased about your child or activities happening at school

I hope your association with us will be a happy and rewarding one.

Julie Turner
Principal
