Rostering home again this week

26 May 2024

Kia ora e te Whānau

Further to our communication last week, we continue to have high levels of sickness within our staff and are therefore forced to roster students home again this coming week.

This measure will ensure the safety and wellbeing of both our students and staff while maintaining the quality of education here at Naenae College. With rostering home, we can reduce the risk of exposure to illness, and we can ensure that our school community remains healthy and safe.

We acknowledge this is short notice. However, rostering home means we can ensure our students are able to complete the NCEA CAA literacy and numeracy exams. Rostering home does not include our SNU students.

We encourage our students to use this time at home wisely to catch up, or get ahead, on school work; often, this flexible learning environment allows students to focus on subjects and projects at their own pace, which is very beneficial.

Therefore, we are asking the following year groups to stay at home on the following days:

Monday, 27 May                 Year 13 work from home

Tuesday, 28 May                 Year 12 work from home

Thursday, 30 May               Year 11 work from home

Friday, 31 May                     Year 10 work from home

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation as we navigate this temporary adjustment. Together, we can turn this challenge into an opportunity for growth and learning. We look forward to welcoming our students back to school as soon as it is safe to do so.
