Guidance for parents, caregivers and whānau

Kia ora whānau,

I hope everyone is managing as best they can within their bubble. The Molloy household will end up much fitter due to our daily workouts and will have one of the cleanest houses in the world! We have established some easy routines and have been a little more lenient on device time (including adults!).

We have just over one more week of ‘school holidays’ and then we start distance learning again on the 15th of April.

In preparation for this here is some helpful information for Supporting learning from home.

Resources to support schools and families

I am mindful that so many of our community may be struggling. While everyone’s situation is different, these are difficult times as our wellbeing, daily routines and long-term plans are significantly altered. There are many resources to support our communities, including AllRight? and resources from the Sparklers website. There are some great online apps, for example Headspace has a range of things that help people keep calm and activities that help with sleep.

I am really missing the connection with staff, parents and our amazing tamariki. I am hoping within the next two weeks we will have some more clarification of when the school site maybe open again. The site will be in much need of grounds work, maintenance and cleaning!

If I can assist in anyway please make contact. The teachers will also be back on the digital deck later this week in preparation of term 2.

Take care – He waka eke noa!
