COVID-19 Update – Monday 23 March, 2020

Kia Ora Koutou


As per the Prime Minister’s update today,  we are now at Alert Level 3 and heading to Alert Level 4.  This means from tomorrow, Tuesday 24 March, Merivale School will be closed until further notice.  No person, including students, staff and community are permitted on school grounds.

Today, staff have been preparing for this possible scenario.  Each child has a home pack which can be used throughout the school’s closure.

For those who did not attend today, we will make these packs available from 8.30am to 10am tomorrow from the staffroom.  For those that miss out, unfortunately they will not be made available after this time. 

Please keep an eye on our website and Facebook page for further updates. 

We realise that this is a whole new situation for everyone but we want to remind you all to be safe as well as kind.  Please, for the sake of our community, our city and our country, stay strong and determined to rid our nation of this pandemic.  We are all in this together – E waka eke noa!
