News from the Board

12 April 2021

Kia Ora Koutou Katoa,

As we reach the end of a busy and productive first term, now would be an appropriate time to provide you all with an update from the Board of Trustees.

COVID-19 Preparedness

As a school, we are well prepared and equipped to manage any changes to the Government’s COVID levels. We are regularly reviewing our current practices against MoE Guidelines and best practice approaches.

Our School Security

By now, you would have received information from our Principle regarding the Hilary Street Gate opening and closing times. Unfortunately, after recent events, it has become necessary to lock the gate to help keep our school safe and secure in the evenings, weekend, and school holidays.

Our new building project for 2021

Our focus now changes to our administration and office block after our very successful refurbishment and upgrades to both the top and bottom blocks last year.

The Ministry of Education has assessed our current administration and office block, including the boiler room, to be a leaky building.

The good news is that we have kicked off the planning stage on what is possibly going to be an exciting opportunity for Hampton Hill. We have been given funding from the Ministry to undertake this work.

We will keep you all updated on the progress made in the coming months.

School drop-offs and pick-ups

We are all asking all parents to be aware of the new parking measures at the Rimu Street school entrance. We have had to implement some preventive parking and car manoeuvring measures up at the school entrance gate to keep our children safe as they walk along the footpath, including parents walking their children along the footpath.

Should you have any questions regarding this update, please don’t hesitate to contact the office, and Sue or Bo will forward your questions or comments to the Board of Trustees.

Have a happy and safe Easter, and we will catch up again in Term 2

From,

Ian Conning, Stefan Knap, Noha Ibrahim, Melanie Zimmerman, Matt Bulford, Stephen Opie, and Rajinder Kumar
