Dear Pigeon Mountain Community

Many thanks for making the first day of 2020 such an enjoyable experience!

We have enjoyed welcoming a huge number of new students, and a group of new teachers, and the classrooms have been places of enjoyment and happiness!

Thank you too for the community response with regards the current virus situation. We have been educating children on effective hygiene practices, and our classrooms are well stocked with soap and sanitiser. Whilst the situation is no doubt worrying to parents, it is with great responsibility that we have been preparing for the safe and healthy return of the students, and we are lucky there has been such a calm atmosphere in and around our community. We have received a wonderful level of cooperation from families who have travelled overseas in the holidays, and the steps some families are taking to keep their families, and the community well.

However, we have had to deal with some rumours being spread through social media, causing worry to some of our school community. These have been investigated and are untrue. At a potentially stressful time as this, we rely on everyone’s cooperation to ensure all of our wellbeing and a healthy school environment. 

If you have a concern or you are unsure of anything, please follow school procedures and contact your child’s classroom teacher, team leader or a member of the school management.

For stand-down from school periods and actions in the event of illness, these can be found on our school website or Ministry of Health site.

Many thanks.

亲爱的鸽子山小学的学员和家长们: 

非常感谢大家的共同努力,让我们今天有一个美好的2020年开学日!

我们欢迎学员们的归来以及新学员新老师的加入!在开学日里,各个教室都成了欢乐的海洋!

同时,非常感谢大家关于现阶段新型冠状病毒的社区反馈,学校对此非常重视。老师们会持续地教育我们的学员们养成有效的卫生习惯,我们也在所有教室里储备了洗手液和消毒液。现阶段的情形下大家无疑会有担忧,只有通过每一位尽心尽责的努力,我们才能共同确保学员安全和健康地返校。我们很幸运也很感恩鸽子山小学社区有平和团结的学校氛围。我们已经收到假期出国的学员家长的大力配合,感谢各位为家人和社区所做出的努力。

然而,我们也在今天了解到有一些不真实的传言在社交媒体上传播,引起我们学校社区中的部分家长的担忧。校方已经对这些传言进行了调查,确认是误传,与事实不符。在现阶段可能有压力的情况下,我们依靠大家的团结协作来确保我们整个鸽子山小学社区的健康和福祉。

如果您有任何担忧或不确定,请按学校的规范工作程序联系您孩子的班主任,教学组长或学校管理团队。关于生病隔离和新型冠状病毒的相关的预防管理条例,请参考我们学校网站或新西兰卫生部官方网站。

非常感谢您的配合
