To Papamoa College Community

I hope this email finds you well in your bubble.

With today's announcement that Alert Level 4 has been extended to the end of Tuesday 24 August, I want to update you with what is happening with Papamoa College and student learning.

From Monday 23 August, Learning from Home Online will occur for all students.

This means that teachers will be engaging with their students via Google Classrooms and their student school emails, to continue with their learning. We are planning for the possibility that this may occur for the whole of next week.

For those students that do not have a digital device at home we will be providing the opportunity to use one of the school's devices. You will receive an email very soon that will outline the process on how you can obtain a digital device for your child should they need it.

If you have any questions regarding your child's online learning please email their teacher directly. Email addresses are written as e.g. Brad Pitt = bpitt@papamoacollege.school.nz

We appreciate that your child may require pastoral support during this time and our normal mechanisms are available should they need it. Please email your child's teacher or even enquiries@papamoacollege.school.nz so that we can link up the most appropriate support.

Sports Events Cancelled
Unfortunately School Sport NZ has made the decision to cancel all sanctioned sports events on its calendar through to Monday 6 September 2021. This includes all events scheduled within the Winter Tournament Week window.

Sadly also, the popular upcoming Rugby by the Beach tournament held at Papamoa College has been cancelled.

Keep an eye on our PC Sports Facebook page for updates on school sports events and competitions.

School Production | Alice in Wonderland
Students and staff have been working very hard in the lead up to the production of Alice in Wonderland which was to open this coming Wednesday 25 August. Unfortunately due to Alert Level 4 the season will have to be postponed. For those of you who have purchased tickets .... the show will go on, but at a later date. We will keep you updated.

Remember covid19.govt.nz has the most up to date information regarding covid19.

Look after yourself and your whanau.

Kia kaha
