 Kia ora koutou 24 March 2020

As we move into this new and uncharted phase of isolation, from today all CRHS teaching sessions, meetings and other activities will be conducted from a distance.   I want to assure our community that CRHS staff are working hard behind the scenes.  You will be aware we have a range of remote learning options and many students already have access to these. 

Adapting our processes:  Over the next two days we will finalise our approach for each of our students to best manage the coming weeks, now we are not able to physically meet.  Your child’s teacher will continue to communicate with you to ensure we accommodate their individual circumstances and our new reality in the best possible way.

Term Break:  The Secretary for Education has announced the term break will start next Monday 30 March.  Remote teaching will resume on Wednesday 15 April and continue until at least Wednesday 22 April.  No doubt we will have further information to share by then.

Board meetings:  These meetings will be held via ZOOM for now.  The next meeting is on Thursday 26 March at 5:00pm.  Members of our community are welcome as observers to these meetings.  If you are planning to observe this on-line meeting, please email me and I will invite you as an attendee.

Thank you everyone for your determination to get this right and keep our community safe and healthy.  Stay in touch.

Kia ora koutou                           03 February 2020

Ngā mihi o te tau hou – Happy New Year.  A warm welcome to all our new staff, and welcome back to you all.  I am really looking forward to getting into our mahi for 2020.   Our year started with a full staff day at Wharerata, Massey University on 28 January which we shared with our Board of Trustees. It was a good opportunity to meet new BOT members and staff and look at our schoolwide goals for the coming year. 



On advice from the Ministry of Education, CRHS requests that parents notify their child’s teacher if it is possible they have come into contact with the virus, either by visiting China or by being in contact with an infected person.  Anyone in this risk group will be asked to remain away from CRHS sites until 14 days have passed since the date of possible contact and they have shown no signs of the illness.  Medical advice should also be sought.  During this time, teachers will remain in contact by phone and email to support learning.

From the Board of Trustees: 

School Donations:  CRHS has opted into the government Donations Scheme.  This means we have undertaken to not request donations from parents for the 2020 year.  In return the Ministry of Education will provide $150 for each student to cover situations where a donation might otherwise be requested.
