The Government has announced that Aotearoa New Zealand will move to a new long-term approach to managing COVID-19. The key change is the

Mon Sep 12 09:25pm

removal of the COVID-19 Protection Framework (traffic lights), which will take effect tonight (Monday 12 September) from 11:59pm.
 
This decision to move away from the traffic lights of the COVID-19 Protection Framework has been made based on public health advice and reflects high levels of immunity in our communities and declining case numbers, which in turn has seen declining demand on the health system from COVID-19.
 
The two key changes impacting education providers are:
 The removal of the requirement for household contacts to isolate. Instead, they will be asked to test for COVID-19 for five days. 
Masks are no longer required on public transport or school transport and in line with other mask changes, they are no longer strongly recommended in school settings.
 
Positive cases remain legally required to isolate for seven days. Anyone who is symptomatic, including household contacts, should stay at home and get tested for COVID-19.
 
More details on today’s announcement are on the Beehive website:
 
COVID-19 Protection Framework retired as NZ moves forward with certainty – Beehive

Players MUST have a mouthguard to play. No mouthguard, no play.
Both teams have a practice after school on Tuesday (Tuesday 26th July) with Mr Corbett at 3 – 3.45pm on the school field if you can make it – bring your mouthguard please. 

Masking up for the start of Term 3 In previous years we have found there is an increase in winter illnesses in schools at the start of Term

Thu Jul 21 08:10pm

3 as students bring back infections after travelling and socialising during the holidays. This year cases of COVID-19 are increasing in most parts of the country, and we are also seeing high numbers of other winter illnesses.


 


For the start of Term 3, 2022, the Ministry of Education and Ministry of Health strongly recommend that all schools and kura wear masks for the first four weeks of term especially wearing them in all indoor settings for students in Years 4 and above.


 


This recommendation does not include any situation where mask wearing might not be practicable, such as while eating and drinking, playing certain musical instruments, indoor sport, where it will have a significant impact on teaching and learning (for example, students with particular learning needs), certain activities such as singing or drama performance on stage, and PE. In these situations, particular attention should be paid to ensuring there is good ventilation during the activity, and physical distancing where practicable.


 


Wearing masks can reduce new cases of the virus by as much as 53%. It works alongside other measures including vaccination, good ventilation, staying home when sick, and hand washing and other hygiene measures, to protect our students and staff. Keep up healthy habits – Unite Against COVID-19


 


Adult-sized masks can generally be adjusted to fit older children by tying knots in the ear loops. Unite Against COVID-19 shows how to do this: How to wear a face mask safely – Unite Against COVID-19


 


We know that that some of our tamariki/ākonga are exempt from wearing a mask. If they have an exemption card or a letter from their health provider, or we have agreed that mask wearing is not practicable for them, we will support them to not wear a mask. Apply for a face mask exemption pass – Unite Against COVID-19


 


Please make sure that tamariki/ākonga come to school ready to wear masks. Students should bring masks from home. If students cannot bring masks from home there will be a limited supply of masks for students who are unable to bring one from home.


 


Thank you for your support in protecting our school community.
