Kia ora koutou

We are now all in Alert Level 4 which means that our school will not be open onsite tomorrow, for any students. This follows someone being identified with COVID-19 and who has been in the Auckland and Coromandel communities while believed to be infectious.

East Taieri School’s Distance Learning Plan will therefore kick into action tomorrow:


With such short notice we weren’t able to hand out devices or hard packs to students in order to support distance learning. However, during the last lockdown there was some wonderful home learning that went on with families doing great things together, enjoying having extra family time together. Your teacher will be in touch tomorrow with some information to support learning from home.

Our focus as always will be to support the learning, safety and wellbeing of our families and tamariki and we continue to be here to support you as well.

Please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s teacher/kaiako, the Deans (Janine Clague – janine@east-taieri.school.nz, Garth Powell – garth@east-taieri.school.nz, Natalie King – natalie@east-taieri.school.nz) or myself, if there is something you need assistance with.
