Community Update, 19 October 2021

KingsWay School —

A Note from Graeme Budler, Executive Principal

Dear KingsWay Community,

Ngā mihi mahana ki a koutou katoa.

The school’s leadership eagerly await tomorrow’s announcement by the Minister of Education. We will then consider and update the community on Thursday on the pragmatic details that follow to get our students and staff back to school safely.

I know that this is now dragging on somewhat, but I pray for everyone to exercise a little more patience and perseverance. Just a reminder that we conclude distance learning at 1 pm on a Wednesday when in lockdown.

Ngā mihi nui and God bless,

Graeme Budler 
Executive Principal
