Distance Learning - Other opportunities

These activities are to help you support your child with their learning at home. We are looking to help our students maintain their learning during this time. 


We do not expect learning at home to be from 9-3. Just a couple of hours of these kinds of activities would make a difference to your child’s learning. We value the day to day things you do with your children and it is important to remember that this is very powerful learning.

We use Seesaw to communicate with students and whānau. Seesaw allows you to see work that your child posts throughout the day. Please email your child’s teacher for information about how to login to Seesaw. Staff contact details are available here.
