Pukehou School

Hi all

I have had notice that a few families are wanting access to devices. Sadly Tuesday/Wednesday were the last days that these were available as our school grounds are now out of bounds for all community members including staff.

If you are struggling with devices please let me know:

principal@pukehou.school.nz

please indicate
- how many devices you require (only one per Pukehou pupil),
- address
- contact phone number.

The MOE may allow for these to be distributed later in the lockdown, they are also trying to coordinate dispersal of MOE resources. Failing this they are working on hard packs for students so they can continue working from home in books rather than online.

This situation is developing quickly, between the MOE and the school staff we will ensure you are able to continue with some form of work after the school holidays (30th March - 14th April)

I am sorry I cannot meet you to give you these devices. Sadly this time has now passed and we are all in this together.

Stay safe and well!

Regards

Chris & the Pukehou team.
