COVID-19 ESS Update

Kia ora koutou katoa

With the announcement by the Prime Minister last night (Tuesday 11 August) of the shift to Level 3 in the Auckland region and Level 2 across the rest of the country for the next three days, please see below the measures we are taking.

We have postponed any workshops or school and kura visits in the Auckland region for the remainder of this week. We will be in touch to confirm this with you, if you have enrolled or are expecting a visit.

For the rest of the country, if an ESS facilitator was to be visiting your school or kura in the next three days, they will check to see if this is still to go ahead. If you would prefer a meeting via Zoom, please indicate this to the facilitator.
We are still delivering the many workshops that are planned however we are following closely the Ministry of Health and Ministry of Education guidelines. We will be observing good hygiene practices and social distancing. If you are feeling unwell please do not attend the workshop for your own wellbeing and for the safety of the teachers attending. If the situation changes we will notify you immediately.
