Moving to Orange: Letter for parents and whānau

Thursday 14 April 2022

Kia ora koutou,

You’ll be aware that Minister of Education Chris Hipkins has announced the move to Orange at 11:59pm last night.

The decision to move to Orange has been made on public health advice and reflects that we are moving past the peak of cases and our health system is able to cope. We are seeing that cases are declining due to high levels of vaccination and natural immunity after infection. 

I wanted to give you an update on what the move to Orange means for our school.  

At Orange, face masks are no longer required at school. However public health advice is that masks continue to be strongly encouraged when indoors. Wearing a mask is a key health measure that slows the spread of COVID-19 in indoor settings. For that reason, we ask that visitors to the school, including parents and whānau, wear a mask whenever they are indoors on school grounds.

We also ask that your child (if they are Year 4+) continues to bring a mask to school every day. There may be times that we’ll ask them to wear a mask, too – for example, when we are having an assembly in the hall. If there are a high number of cases at school or in the community, we may ask that masks are worn in classrooms for a time.

At Orange, students aged 12 and above are still required to wear a face mask on school or public transport.

We will continue to keep all the other health measures in place at school that we know slow the spread of COVID-19. These include ensuring our indoor spaces are well-ventilated, maintaining good hand hygiene and cough and sneeze etiquette, appropriate physical distancing whenever we can and, most importantly, staying home if we are sick. 

We are looking forward to a few less restrictions and returning to school life that is a bit closer to normal.

Next term we will be going back to normal times of starting at 8.55am and finishing at 3pm. ALL gates will be open from 8.15am till 8.55am when school starts, and in the afternoon just before 3pm. Parents will be allowed in the school grounds, but are still not permitted in the classrooms.

Please also note that there is a TEACHER ONLY DAY on Monday 2nd May, so the first day back at school for students for Term 2 will be Tuesday 3rd May.

Ngā mihi,

Mr Greg Roebuck
Principal

Update to parents and caregivers

Kia Ora,

I am writing to keep you updated about how our school is continuing to respond to COVID-19 in New Zealand.

As you may have seen, in the last few days the media has reported a reduction in the number of daily cases.

While we know that cases in school will rise and fall with that of the level in our community, our health experts tell us that children are much more likely to be exposed to COVID-19 in the community than at school. We also know that nationally in mid-March no more than 4% of teachers in any seven-day period reported as testing positive. It is currently around 3.5%.

As you know, it’s great for any child’s wellbeing and learning to be at school with their friends, teachers and other school staff. You also know that we have very good systems in place to keep everyone as safe as possible.

This is why we remain open at Red.

I wanted to remind you that in our school we are keeping the additional layers of protection in place to help prevent or reduce the risk of onward spread.

We know that being fully vaccinated and boosted reduces the risk of severe illness due to COVID-19. We are encouraging all adults in our school who are working with students to be vaccinated including their booster. If they are eligible, I encourage you to get your child vaccinated, too.

I know that some of you still have questions about this, however, so I’ve included links to a video that answers many of the common questions about the vaccine:

Mask wearing for our students Year 4 and above and for adults remains in place in indoor spaces and we are getting lots of fresh air during the day. We also continue to focus on basic hygiene such as washing hands regularly, covering any coughs and sneezes, and cleaning surfaces regularly.

Like the links above, KidsHealth has some other great resources you may be interested in:

From time to time some students will need to isolate at home. This is in line with Government advice and if this happens, we will support them to continue their learning home to minimise any interruption.

According to the Paediatric Society of NZ, in most children COVID-19 is a mild illness. It can be managed by whānau with some simple measures such as keeping fluids up and keeping an eye on your tamaiti (child).

If you have any concerns about sending your child to school, please get in touch – our team is here to help. We want children to be at school and engaging in learning with their friends.

Your job remains the same, too: please continue to keep a really close watch of your whānau for anyone with symptoms. If unwell, please stay at home and get advice about getting a COVID-19 test.

Noho ora mai,

Mr Greg Roebuck
Principal

Guidance for Parents and Caregivers for children returning to school on Thursday 3rd February

Kia ora Koutou,

Welcome back to 2022! We look forward to a successful year with your children.

Protocols to follow for returning to school:

These requirements are necessary and guided by the Ministry and Government to ensure the safety of all the children and whanau within the New Lynn School Community.

Please note that all staff members are vaccinated as required and are currently in the process of getting their boosters.

Please note the following:

Before School:

  • The main gate will be open from 8am and will have staff there to guide and support you with your children returning to school

  • Children will need to be dropped at the main gate either in person or through the drive-through drop off

  • If using the drive-through drop off please DO NOT exit your car

  • To keep everyone safe we are asking that parents do not enter the school unless absolutely necessary. In this case, you will need to go to the school office

  • Anyone entering the school must have a mask and sign in

  • For our new families, we will assist you in getting your child to their new classroom

  • All children will hand sanitize as they enter school

  • Please follow social distancing protocols

After School:

  • In order to keep everyone safe, we will continue to do a staggered pick up at different areas and times around the school

  • Please see the map for classes and pick up times

Important things to remember:

  • Children from years 4-6 will be required to wear a mask at school

  • Children must have a medical exemption for not wearing a mask

  • If children are unwell they MUST stay home - if a child comes to school and is unwell they will be sent home. Please remember that sending a sick child to school puts everyone in our school at risk

  • Ministry guidelines are being followed in terms of the health and safety requirements that have been set out by the Ministry

  • Classes are in smaller bubbles to reduce the risk for children

  • All children are expected to return to school as per the government's recommendations.

  • Home learning will only be provided for those children that have a medical exemption or that have been asked by the Ministry of Health to stay home and isolate.

  • Children will regularly sanitize their hands

  • Classrooms will be well ventilated

  • If there is a COVID case at our school we will work with the Ministry who will guide us through the process and we will keep you informed


Please be assured that our main priority is the safety and wellbeing of your children. We will do our very best to ensure that our school is safe and that we follow all government and ministry of education guidelines.

If you have any concerns at all please contact the school office and the Principal will be available to talk to you if you need.

Dear New Lynn School Whanau,

School Information

It’s been a challenging year for us all managing covid19 and having to adapt and change to the new normal. However, I would like to thank you all for your ongoing support of the school during this difficult time. Because we are still having to operate under restrictions it means that we will not be able to do what we normally do at the end of the year. Please read the information below so that you are aware of the adaptions to the end of the school year.

Reporting to Parents

We will not be sending reports home at the end of this year. This is due to the fact that we have not been able to assess children due to lockdown and the fact that many of our students have not returned to school. Please contact the school office if you would like to discuss this decision.

School Prize Giving

Unfortunately due to covid restrictions, this will not be happening this year.

Year 6 Graduation

We will not be able to hold a formal graduation, however, we will provide graduation certificates for all year 6 children. These will be able to be collected from the office during the last 3 days of school. If you are unable to collect these we will post them out to you.

Classes for 2022

A letter will be sent out to all families with your child’s new class for next year. The children will get a chance to meet their new teacher this year in the class they will be attending in 2022. We are aware that some children will not be at school for this. However please be assured that we will look after all students when everyone returns on Thursday 3rd February 2022.

Last day of school

The last day of school is Wednesday 15th December 2021. School will finish at 1pm. If your address has changed please let the school office know.

I would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and look forward to seeing everyone in the New Year.


Yours Sincerely

Greg Roebuck

Letter for parents and whanau at New Lynn school


Kia ora koutou,

I hope this letter finds you and your whānau safe and well.

We are delighted to be able to welcome more tamariki back onsite under Alert Level 3 from next Wednesday 17 November.

We know learning kanohi ki te kanohi is the best option for children and young people. It’s important for them to connect with their friends and teachers and it helps their social, physical and emotional wellbeing.

And so we look forward to starting to bring children back on site. If your child is already attending fulltime they will continue to. For other children returning we are likely to need to manage the numbers of students attending each day to keep everyone safe.

Even with the Delta variant, the risk of COVID-19 transmission in schools is low because of all the public health measures we will have in place. What this will look like:

  • we may need to limit the number of tamariki and staff onsite each day

  • we will keep those onsite in separate groups

  • we’ll ensure our classrooms are well ventilated

  • we’ll continue to practice physical distancing where possible.

In addition to this, all staff and children in Years 4 and above are required to wear face coverings indoors (unless they have an exemption), and we’ll ensure all staff (and external contractors) who are on site are fully vaccinated or will have had had at least one dose of the vaccine and return a negative weekly test.

What you can do to help:

  • stay at home if you or your child is sick

  • avoid catching up with other parents, children and whānau at the gates

  • wear a face covering and maintain a two-metre distance from people not in your household bubble

  • get advice from your doctor if you or your child has complex medical needs (and please get in touch so that we can support your child to return onsite, wherever possible)

  • avoid having playdates inside with children from other families at Alert Level 3.

School will be open on Wednesday 17th November for all children who are returning to school. Further information around start and finish times we will notify you early next week.

We would encourage you to talk to your child about what our plans are and why this is happening.

Please note, we’ll continue to support learning from home for those tamariki who will not be attending onsite.

If you have questions or concerns, you can contact me or your child’s teacher by phone or email.

We look forward to seeing you back at school next week.


Ngā mihi,

Greg Roebuck

Kia ora te whanau


We are aware that with COVID many people are undertaking a juggling act at home, however, with the closing and ballot dates for intermediate schools looming (18th October closes and 26th October Ballot), it is important students are enrolled at an intermediate school. Those in-zone also need to enrol as soon as possible so that schools can begin the transition process and plan for the 2022 school year. If you have yet to enrol your child we encourage you to do so as soon as possible.

Alert Level 4 Lockdown - Auckland


Kia ora koutou,


Things you need to know about Alert Level 4


  • Schools and early learning services are closed onsite, but open for distance learning


  • Only essential services or business can open


  • In Alert Level 4, only essential businesses and services are operating. This means that parents and caregivers may be required to go to work, rather than work from or stay at home. At Alert Level 4 you will need to make your own childcare arrangements.

  • Face coverings are a vital tool to reduce spread


  • Only leave your home if you need to, and please wear a face covering when you do. We know of instances where people have picked up Delta simply by walking past someone with it.


  • Face coverings are required on public transport and domestic flights, in taxis and ride-share services and at any business operating at Alert Level 4 (supermarkets, pharmacies etc.). Those aged under 12 remain exempted from having to wear face coverings.


  • People must only leave their homes for essential purposes


  • You can only leave home to shop for groceries, access necessary healthcare, get a COVID-19 test, exercise in your local area or go to work if you are working in an Alert Level 4 service and you cannot work from home.


  • Schools will be cleaned and contact tracing will take place if there is a confirmed case who was infectious when at school


  • School cleaning will take place when we move to Alert Level 3.

Fundamental public health measures continue to apply at every alert level:


• Physical distancing

• Hand hygiene

• Cough and sneeze etiquette

• Regularly cleaning and disinfecting high touch surfaces

Testing remains a crucial component in preventing an outbreak


If people have cold or flu symptoms they should call their doctor or Healthline on 0800 358 5453 for advice about getting tested. If recommended to get tested, they should do so.

Stay within your personal bubble


Agencies you can contact for assistance


Many families may find it tough going back into Alert Level 4. It can be challenging having children at home, being cut off from family and friends, trying to make ends meet and have high stress levels.


For people with disabilities or autism and their support people, the Explore 0800 000421 phone service is available to provide advice or support. This includes advice or support around challenging behaviours. To access this service, you don’t need a referral and it doesn’t matter whether you’re new to Explore, currently on their waitlist or you’ve worked with them previously. The service is available Monday to Friday 9.00am–5.00pm. When you phone the 0800 number you will be connected with an administrator who will then book you an appointment with one of the specialists.

KidsCan Breakfast Film & Photo Shoot

We have the KidsCan organisation coming into our school to do a photo and film shoot of our children.

They are looking for the following;

  • We are looking for approx. 15 x year 3 & 4 children and 15 x year 5 & 6 children

  • It is really important that we capture the amazing cultural diversity that is present in your school, as it is a great representation of all of the children we support throughout NZ. So we are hoping for a mix of all ethnicities, including but by no means limited to NZ European

  • Each child who participates will need to fill in the consent form with the parent/s or caregiver/s signature.


The images will be used to promote KidsCan and possible others who are involved in supporting the food in schools programmes.


Children who don't use the breakfast facilities are still welcoming to apply.


Please be prepared to be at school by 8:00am on Wednesday 11th May as filming and photographs will begin early.



We will give out more information as it comes to hand.

Please download and fill out the permission slip returning it back to our office, or request one at the office to complete.
