Your AJHS eNewsletter has arrived – Week 2

School of Opportunity

Kia ora koutou parents and caregivers,

There are growing questions about what the rest of the school year looks like for Y0-10 students. On Wednesday afternoon, we learned that there is a suggested date for Y0-8 students to return to school on the 15 November in Alert Level 3 zones. We anticipate a full plan for Y0-10 students will emerge soon.

School Principals find out details like this at the same time the public do, so we will keep you updated as soon as we have confirmation, and finalise planning with our leadership team.

Thank you for your support everyone and have a lovely weekend.

Ngā mihi,

Cushla Shepherd, Acting Principal

Albany Junior High School
