Message from Dale Burden - Executive Principal


 14 August 2020

As advised by the Prime Minister this evening, we will remain at Level 2 for the next 12 days, to be reviewed on the 26th of August 2020.   

This is good news, as it means school can continue to be taught face-to-face at the St Peter’s campus.  

To reiterate the Public Health requirements for schools at Alert Level 2: 

  • It is safe for all students and staff to attend school. There are appropriate precautions in place.
  • Students and staff who are at higher-risk of severe illness are encouraged to take additional precautions when leaving home. 
  • Please be alert to illness and we ask anyone who is presenting as unwell, to stay at home.  
  • Good hand hygiene and cough and sneeze etiquette to be reinforced.    For schools - students and staff should be far enough away from one another, so that they are not breathing on each other.  
  • Good hygiene practices and regular cleaning of commonly touched surfaces will be enforced. There does not need to be a specific measurement, but where practicable and reasonable 1 metre can be used as a guide, particularly between adults.  
  • We will be displaying the QR code posters for the NZ COVID Tracer App.  
  • Masks are not required at schools at Alert level 2.  

Contact tracing  

If you are required to visit ANY part of the school, please report to either reception or the student centre, to complete the contact tracing documentation.  For boarding house visitors, please check-in with the boarding house staff to complete this form.  ALL visitors who are not staff or students must complete this information as part of the Public Health guidelines at Alert Level 2. When delivering your child to and from school, please remain in your vehicle.                      

Bus Operations  

The school bus service will operate as normal.  Please note that these buses are dedicated to St Peter’s students only, following strict cleaning. Hand sanitiser will be provided when getting on and off the buses.  

We look forward to welcoming your child/ren back to school on Monday. 

Dale Burden - Executive Principal
