Good Morning Monte Whanau,

Our school Board of Trustees has made the decision to cancel upcoming events that involve community gatherings, in the foreseeable future, following Ministry of Education and Ministry of Health guidelines.

Our students, staff and families’ health and wellbeing are paramount.

The Ministry guidelines indicate that all core educational activities should go ahead as usual -while minimising any unnecessary large group contact. 

This means that:

St Josephs’s & Significant Males Day – the invitation to adults has unfortunately been cancelled.

Family Mass on Saturday 28th March Mass at St John Vianney will proceed for those families who wish to attend but the Community Picnic after mass is cancelled.

Monte Swimming Sports – students will compete in year group races on designated days at school as this is core curriculum experience. The invitation to parents and community to gather is cancelled. 

I thank you for your ongoing support. You will be informed of any further updates as they arise.

Nga mihi, 

Sarah McAlpine
