As communicated previously, on Wednesdays, students should be in their whaanau roopuu (form class) by 9.40am, as staff professional learning has moved to Wednesday mornings instead of afternoons. School ends at 3.20pm, the same as each of the other days of the week. This has the significant advantage, broadly welcomed by our community, of not having the whole school finish at 1.50pm as has happened in previous years.
We realise that this will have implications for some students who travel by bus or who are dropped off by car. The library, Year 13 common room and some designated classrooms will be open for students who arrive early to school and supervision will be available to ensure students are safe. As the year progresses, we will keep Wednesday mornings under review.
