Kia ora tātou e te whānau,
New Zealand will stay in alert level 4 lockdown until at least midnight on Friday, and Auckland will stay locked down until at least midnight on Tuesday 31st August 2021 therefore Wymondley Road School will remain closed until further notice.
WE HAVE BEEN HERE BEFORE
I want to encourage whānau to keep vigilant with the Covid restrictions at level 4. We will only be able to rid our country of the virus if we follow the rules. You are doing a great job so far! Remember that if you feel unwell, get tested!
SCHOOL IS CLOSED
We remind parents that school remains CLOSED while we are in Alert Level 4 and until further notice. ALL local playgrounds remain closed.

Classroom teachers will notify parents when staff are able to enter the school to organise hard copy learning materials. In the meantime, remote and online learning is accessible through our regular sources of Seesaw and Google Classroom, as well as the online tools we have available for our tamariki to use (as listed below).
All students have remote learning accessible to them. For any concerns, issues or questions do not hesitate to email your child’s class teacher or
