Information for Whanāu
An average school day features literacy learning, maths learning and learning in an additional curriculum area. The links below will direct your child to learning tasks that are a familiar part of our programme. This will enable them to emulate a typical school day while at home. Working with your child to create a timetable that works for you both can be a beneficial way of fostering independence and accountability.
At school we use google classroom to deliver learning activities, especially in literacy. At home they will continue to access learning on google classroom.
Please contact your child's homeroom teacher if you require any support.

Being active is so important for our well-being! Check out the ideas below for your daily fix of exercise.
If you don't have a book at home to read, we suggest you ...
If you don't already have a membership you can sign up online. Click on the 'Kids' or 'Teens' tab and find yourself a book to snuggle up with.
Once you are connected with OverDrive, we suggest you download the Libby app to access digital books, audiobooks and magazines.

When you want something a little different from going for a walk or ride, try one of these ideas. Remember to exercise for at least 30 mins every day.
Need an extra challenge to stretch your mind further? Check the options below.
Notify your parents / caregivers
Your parents or caregivers need to know you are on a Zoom. It is fine for them to be in the same room as you, in fact we encourage this.
When you enter a Zoom, mute yourself. When it is your turn to contribute, unmute yourself.
Questions / comments
Type these into the 'chat' (bottom of your screen.
Find a quiet spot but not your bedroom
To avoid distraction for you and the others on the video conference, find a quiet spot in your house. It will be easier for others on the call to hear from you and for you to hear them. Don't use Zoom in your bedroom.
Keep your background plain
Video conferences have a ton of fun backgrounds but don’t use them when you are on a learning or formal meeting. They can be very distracting. If possible, find a spot in your house that has a simple background and has good lighting. But, don’t sit in front of a window with the light streaming in behind you; that will also make it hard for people to see you.
Stay in One Spot during the video conference
Stay in one spot so everyone can concentrate on the speaker (rather than you moving around).
Have Materials Ready
Be ready for your meeting. Gather any materials you need ahead of time. Also, make sure you go to the toilet beforehand. If you want to have water, grab a bottle before the conference starts.
