COVID-19 ESS Update
The Prime Minister addressed the nation, March 21 2020 outlining new measures in the Governments response to COVID-19. As a result, we are moving to a new way of working to ensure that we follow the Ministry of Health and Government recommendations as we are at Level 2 of the National COVID-19 alert system. We aim to ensure the safety of school communities and facilitators during this pandemic.
This means facilitators will reduce travel and work from a distance and cease face to face contact with schools, kura and centres. To ensure your PLD needs continue to be met, facilitators will instigate, or continue to use, distance meeting and collaboration tools such as Zoom and Skype to interact with you and to design online modules to support your PLD needs during this time.
This also means the range of workshops we would be running around Aotearoa New Zealand will be postponed. You will receive information regarding this via email if you have already enrolled.
As the situation changes we will respond accordingly and recognise these are extraordinary measures in unprecedented circumstances. For more information go to: https://covid19.govt.nz

We appreciate your support. If you have any questions please contact:

vanessa.whaanga@otago.ac.nz (workshop cancellations)
cheryl.pym@otago.ac.nz (pld/facilitators)

Kia kaha
