Lockdown continues with online learning

The Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern announced today that Auckland will remain at Level 3 lockdown until 11:59 pm on Sunday 30 August. Online learning will continue until Friday 28th August. Auckland will return to Level 2 along with the rest of New Zealand on Monday 31 August and Northcote College will reopen for timetabled classes from Monday 31 August - Timetable Day 2.

In the meantime all teaching and learning will continue to be online and Year 9 and 10 students who are the children of essential workers - and any other students who need to attend - may do so by arrangement and will be supervised.

Students attending school should bring a chromebook and headphones with them to school, and preferably bring their own face mask.  

Parents please email if you are sending your child to school.

We will provide updates on the school’s Facebook (, website (, and app (schoolappsnz – search for Northcote College) as they come to hand.
