COVID-19 Protection Framework (CPF)

As outlined above, we will live-stream the Junior Prizegiving with staff and students in attendance, only.

As you are aware we have moved to the ‘traffic light system’, or CPF. With this, there are implications and some complexities, as per the information below related to school sport in 2022.

Currently, Hawke’s Bay is in ‘orange’. However, this could change before the 2022 school year. In late January we will confirm our status, and any changes in expectation/procedure, in advance of your son returning to school in 2022.

Government advice and expectations, tagged ‘life at Orange’, can be accessed here:
