Kia ora koutou. Hello everyone.
Below is a competition that has come through from EZLunch and Pita Pit for families in the school holidays if you are interested and the link below is to a video from our staff to your children. Many thanks to Fiona De L’Isle for putting this together for us. This will also be on our school website under Lockdown – Hello from Glamorgan School. Last year’s video is also still there if they want to watch that as well.
Finally at the bottom of this email are the links I have sent through over the past weeks that might be useful for you to have in one place.
I wish you all the best and will email you all again prior to school resuming when more is known about alert level changes at that time.

Safe TV viewing for students in Alert Levels 3 and 4
A practical guide to the latest tools (including parental locks, classifications, advisories, warnings and timebands) plus an informative video from Jordan ‘How to DAD’ Watson is available at safeviewing.co.nz.
In this video they’ve made, they describe what parents can do if they have concerns. If you are still concerned your tamariki aren’t coping, it’s important to reach out and talk with a health professional. There’s lots of support, information and help available.
MSD Financial assistance tool
Finally, we know some families in our community may be finding it difficult to access food and essential items such as medicine. This information about how to access to food or essential items summarises the supports that are available, including financial help to buy food.
Upcoming Events – these will be updated when we know what Alert Level Auckland will be at for term 4. Thank you for your patience.
