Kia ora Whanau

We were excited to receive the Prime Minister's decision this afternoon that all of New Zealand (excluding Auckland) will move to Alert Level 2 from 11:59pm tomorrow Tuesday 7 September and that face-to-face learning will resume from Thursday 9th September 2021. The move down the alert levels is a reflection of the contribution of all New Zealanders in the effort to control the spread of this outbreak.

The Berkley staff and I are looking forward to welcoming all learners back to school and will take time over the next two days to make the necessary preparations to ensure that we are ready to accomodate learners under the requirements of Delta Alert Level 2. Please be assured that actioning the requirements set by the Ministry of Health will be an absolute priority for us to ensure that all learners, staff and our community will be safe and continue to support New Zealand’s actions to eliminate the COVID-19 virus.

As per the Prime Minister’s announcement, school remains closed until Thursday 9 September and distance learning will continue for this time. For the next two days, face-to-face learning will only be available for those students who have already been attending as part of a Berkley bubble at Alert Level 3.

Please keep an eye out for an update from me tomorrow which will outline specific details of how Berkley will operate under Alert Level 2.
