school closed till 7 feb

2023 Northcote College start dates

Kia ora koutou

We hope you are safe following the Auckland flood.

We have changed our plans for this week in response to a direction this afternoon from the Secretary of Education:

With the possibility of further weather damage leading to more disruption, the Secretary for Education has directed that schools, kura, early learning services and tertiary organisations in the Auckland region (Wellsford to Pukekohe) to close for physical attendance and instruction until Tuesday 7 February.
Article from One News:

Northcote College will delay our first days for students until next week. We are moving everything we would have done this week to next week.

Pōwhiri for Year 9 students and their whānau, followed by peer support programme

Updated start of year details will be on the website tomorrow morning.

Senior students who still need to confirm their timetable should contact their Dean.

Thank you for your understanding and support. This is certainly not how we expected to start the school year. We have made the decision to move the start of the year rather than moving to online learning.

Should you have any questions or concerns please contact your child’s Year Level Dean.
Year 9 Dean Fleur McGhee
Year 10 Dean Sophie Lindfield
Year 11 Dean Antonia Williams
Year 12 Dean Charles Wallace
Year 13 Dean Chadd Davis

He waka eke noa.
