As we move into distance learning we are trying our best to ensure each student, as much as possible, is engaged with learning. Every family has their own set of needs and priorities during this unprecedented time and we recognise this implicitly. Therefore, we will continue to develop the curriculum to suit needs, follow up on engagement, progress and achievement for our students.

We have put a system in place for Deans to check on student engagement. This means that if students have not been in touch with their respective teachers (engaged with learning), only Deans will contact home to make sure that your child is able to access the learning. Subject teachers will notify Deans on a Friday and Deans will do their best to contact as many homes as possible during the week which follows. If you have any queries, please contact the relevant Dean (see Contact Details for Deans).

Please share the information in our newsletter with your child(ren), this helps with communication around their learning. Please check that your child(ren) have logged in to their Microsoft Office 365 account (school account) to check their emails and ‘Microsoft Teams’ in preparation for the first day of school which is Wednesday April 15th.

Finally, your family and their well-being are important to us. If your family needs assistance in anyway please contact us via help@otahuhucollege.school.nz or phone (09) 963 4006 and we will do the best we can to assist and support.
