Plan for Term Three Week Five

Friday 20 August 2021



Evening all,


Following on from the Government’s announcement to remain in LEVEL FOUR until next Tuesday night at 11.59pm all Rahotu Students will move to remote learning from Monday 23 August.


So what does this look like for your children and family?

Whether you take up the online learning or complete the resource packs, simply do what you can, when you can. There is no pressure. If it is easier to involve your children into the daily life at home and on the farm, then do this instead. The choice is yours. We appreciate everyone’s situations are different and unique to your family.


If you need support please call me on 027 311 5606 or email principal@rahotu.school.nz


  1. We will provide online learning via Google Classroom if you have access to a computer and the internet. On Monday at 10am Mr Manning –Jones will email students their account with instructions on how to access Google Classroom via parents'/caregivers' email.


If you do not receive an email by 1pm then please email Simon directly on: smjones@rahotu.school.nz


2. We will provide resource packs for those who have no access to online learning. These will be available from the school office from 12 noon on Monday. As we are in level four, collection of packs will be staggered to meet the strict guidelines as outlined by the Ministry of Health. You will not be permitted to enter the building. Please ensure you are wearing a mask. You will collect the resources placed outside the main office. You will be contacted with a time via text in which these can be collected.


If you do not receive a text by 1pm then please text Brigitte on 021 3115606.


3. We have a limited supply of computers that we are able to distribute, the priority will be given to our senior students first.

Unfortunately, not everyone will receive a computer as we have limited computers to loan. The collection of the computer will be the same as outlined above with regards to resource packs.


In the immediate future we have planned online learning for Monday -Thursday.

Resource packs can be worked through at your leisure.


Thank you for your patience.
