Homai School Update – Friday 21 August 2020

Kia Ora Whānau 

Thank you once again for all your support from home during Alert Level 3.  It has been wonderful to hear and see the work you are doing from home and engaging in your child’s learning.  The Staff and Board of Trustees would like to extend their huge appreciation at this time.

Before I give you an update, I just wanted to talk about our values of Guardianship, Integrity, Vigilance, Empathy, and Success.  More than ever, this is the time that we need to show these values and work collaboratively together,

Please know that if you or your family or any family you know of is facing challenges during this alert level, reach out confidentially to me at: nrao@homai.school.nz

We are here to help and support you and as a School, we believe that this is what it means to be a part of our learning community.  You are giving us your support, we are working at a distance with you, but everyone needs a helping hand sometimes.  Please don’t be afraid to ask.


  1. Our government will be reviewing the Alert Level 3 for Auckland today and we are hoping, like you, to have an update on next week.  Until then, the Alert Level 3 remains in place until 11:59 p.m. Wednesday 26 August 2020.
  2. Remember that the best source of information at this time is the Covid-19 website: https://covid19.govt.nz/. There are a lot of rumours circulating on social media but it is advised to stay away from any fake news and go directly to this site instead.  Again, if you need any clarification, reach out to us and ask.
  3. At this stage, all our dates and events communicated prior to Alert Level 3 and after Wednesday 26 August, will still be going ahead, e.g. Language Weeks, Social Action Week, etc.

Thank you again for all you are doing for your family, for our country and most importantly, for your children – our tamariki.  We are proud to be a part of this community practising Guardianship, showing Integrity, Vigilance, Empathy and achieving Success.

Take care and be safe whānau.  We will update you with more information after Monday’s announcement by the Government.
