School Closure Activities
E tauwhiro ana ko ngā manaakitanga o te aio,
o te rangi me the whenua i a koutou otira, ki a tātou katoa.
Haere pai atu, hoki pai mai, E tika ana, ka tutakitaki tahi ai tātou
hei te maramama kei te haere mai nei.
Mā o tātou mātua tIpuna, mā o tātou kaitiaki katoa tātou e ārahi
e arataki i runga i ngā tūāhuatanga o te wā.
Mauri ora ki te whai ao, ki te ao marama, Mauri ora ki a tatou katoa.
Te Kura Māori o Ngā Tapuwae place great importance on our whānau and as such do not want to cause any more distress by expecting 'normal' schoolwork to continue throughout the school closure. The Ministry have said that the two-week school holidays begin at the start of the official closure period and then distance learning can continue thereafter.
There are several activities for all our students to work through, but they are not mandatory. These should be seen by whānau as support activities and not 'must do' homework tasks. We have a different range of opportunities available to you, from a timetable for a day or feel free to take different areas of what we have offered to suit your whānau and their needs.
We are aware that there are many whānau without internet access so have included activities that can be done offline. We would however like to note that any hard-copied documents must not be returned to school for marking due to the possible transference of germs
As outlined on some of the activity sheets/links teachers have provided their email addresses if you or your child have any queries.
Please note that teachers will not be available 24-7 but they will endeavour to reply to your email as they are able, as they also have to manage their own whānau.
Term one reports have been posted to all whānau as of Today
