Aramoana Mohi-Maxwell —

Tēnā kōutou ko te whānau o te kura o Rautāwhiri,

These past four weeks have been a time of rapid change and I hope that everyone was safe in their mirumiru (bubbles) and now successfully transitioned back into school. The impact of the Co-vid virus on our world continues to grow the way we use technology, design our learning programmes and build relationships with our young women and their whānau.

Through this time we gathered as staff so that we could stay connected and establish a way forward for learning in Lockdown conditions and at Alert Level 3.

Our staff found ways to keep our students posted about their learning. We used a range of digital platforms as well as texting and phone calls to keep our young women connected to their learning.

Through these types of communication, our learners were able to connect and experience on-line learning that was still streamlined to the requirements of their various subject courses.

Professional Learning opportunities that are in place remain. They have offered their support and we are currently working with them to reschedule meetings with our kaiako.

We are doing all that we can to keep our young women connected and learning. We are here if you need anything. NCEA is the key focus at Years 11-13 and we will do all that we can to help our young women succeed. To our whānau, thank you for your willingness to work with us and as the Deputy Principal of Year 12, please contact myself or Whaea Jaylene Tamati if you have any queries.

Nāku noa nei, nā
