Learning Packs and Devices

Kia ora Kingsford Whanau

Due to the increased risk of the Delta variant of Covid-19 currently in the Auckland community, we have decided not to have staff out delivering learning packs. Instead, we are providing a pick-up service.

Whanau who do not have internet access have been prioritised for hard copy learning packs. Those families will be contacted today regarding pick up arrangements. The hard copy pack is literally a print off of what is on our home learning site – so if your whanau can access this site, then you will not require a hard copy pack. See the video below as to what is in the hard copy pack.

What’s in the Kingsford hard copy learning pack?

Students in Year 5 or 6 (Rooms 1, 2, 3, 19 and 20) who have wifi at home but not a device may have the opportunity to use a school device. Those teachers will be in touch with you today/tomorrow to discuss whether this is an option for you, and if so, will let you know the arrangements for collecting a device.

Through this approach, we are trying to reduce the number of families who may potentially break their bubble in collecting packs or devices. We are under very strict conditions from the Ministry of Education and Health in terms of access to our school, so appreciate your understanding and patience as we navigate this space.

If you are finding home learning a challenge, please contact your child’s teacher – they will be the best person to help you access the support you need.
