Welcome to 2022. We hope you have all had a very pleasant Christmas and New Year break!

We look forward to welcoming you all back when classes start on Thursday 3rd February.

At this stage schools will open under the COVID Traffic Light system of RED. (see full details below)

Please note the Ministry of Education and Health are updating us regularly as the rules are being tightened. Hopefully by the time school starts we will have a clearer view of what this will look like for our staff and students.

Please keep checking back here for any changes
