Ngātiwai ki Tamaki doing the mahi to support vulnerable whānau
Like in Tai Tokerau, the collaboration is the key to the success of this mahi, and we acknowledge the Ministry of Social Development (MSD), Te Ha Oranga o Ngāti Whatua and Auckland Transport in supporting our our team in Auckland to support our whānau.
The feedback and appreciation our tamaki team are getting from our kaumātua has been humbling to all those involved.
Ka mau te wehi Ngātiwai ki tamaki!!

Key Education Messages from NZ Government
• Early learning centres and schools will be open for students up to Year 10. But children who can stay home, should stay home. At-risk students and staff, including those over 70, should stay home.
• Residential and special schools will not reopen for students to physically attend in the early stages of Alert Level 3. They may reopen later if public health measures can be implemented.
• Most children who need to attend school can do so from 29 April. It may take longer for some schools to be ready and the Ministry of Education will work with them to prepare.
• NCEA students in Years 11-13 will continue remotely. Teachers will continue to support students while they are at home.
• For tertiary education, Alert Level 3 means remote learning will continue. Where that is not possible, some facilities may reopen with strict physical distancing in place.
• Students currently in hostels or self-contained flats can stay there with strict rules, but if students moved home to join their family bubbles they should stay there.
• The Ministry of Education has been working with sector groups to work through any practical issues. Detailed advice to support schools will be released over the next week.
• Our approach to reopening schools is based on the latest public health advice. Physical distancing will be difficult with young children, however we’ve reached the point where the Director-General is confident we have no widespread community transmission.
• It is important that parents do their bit – keep children at home if you can, especially if they are unwell. Strictly maintain your family bubble outside of school and work and basic hygiene.
• Distance learning will be with us for some time, for at least another three weeks. We’ve started the distribution of technology, equipment and resources to support this.
• To the parents out there, be kind to yourself we are not expecting parents to completely replace the classroom environment at home. These are extraordinary times.
• Thanks to our education professionals for their hard work to support their schools and students.
Kōhanga Reo Trust not convinced to reopen under Alert Level 3
But the National Kōhanga Reo Trust isn\’t convinced the decision to reopen under Alert level 3 is the right one.
