Greetings to all Oratia families and whānau.

Greetings to everyone in the Oratia community as we welcome back our students this week under Level 1. We are still supporting contact tracing by having QR code posters at our entrances – so if you haven’t already downloaded the NZ COVID Tracer app the Ministry of Health’s NZ-COVID Tracer app page has information to help you do that. As always during school hours please ensure you go to the school office and not directly to your child’s class.

As a school, we will continue to maintain our good hygiene measures such as regular cleaning of commonly touched surfaces and washing of hands. It is no longer necessary for children to sanitise their hands on entry and exit to rooms however this will still be available. It is very important that if your child/ren are unwell they stay at home.

Thank you for your support

Linda Allen (Principal)

confident, connected learners making a positive difference
