We would like to thank and acknowledge our community for supporting this latest Alert Level Three lockdown and keeping your children at home. We have had a very small number of children at school whose families have been required to go to work.

As we wait for an announcement at 4:30pm today, we thought we would provide some information about what school 'looks like' at each of the levels. Hopefully this will help everyone understand what we can and can't do.

We will send out another communication through our HERO App, the website and Facebook after the Prime Ministers announcement.
