Welcome to Term 3 2022 Learning at Home

Kia ora whānau and welcome to the Kōwhai Learning at Home page.

There are a range of online and offline activities you might like to complete during the day, also shown below. None of these activities are compulsory and it is up to you and your parents to decide which activities will work best in your home situation.

Please contact your child's home group teacher if you have any questions and we can give you an email or call to help.


Seesaw is a way for you to share what you have been up to while learning at home. To sign in to Seesaw, go to the Seesaw website and log in with your normal Google login (the same one you normally use on Chromebooks at school). You can use Seesaw to easily share your learning or other photos and videos of activities you have been up to. Your parents can install the Seesaw app on an iPad, tablet or smartphone to make sharing easier.

If you need any help with Seesaw contact your Homegroup Teacher.
