Announcements from the Headmaster

11 August:

Dear St Peter’s Community,

Tonight the Prime Minister has announced that Auckland will return to Level 3 lockdown from 12noon tomorrow.

St Peter’s is closed tomorrow for all students except those children of essential workers.

There will be no online learning tomorrow as we need to allow our staff to have time to prepare. Online learning will return from Thursday where our classes will follow the normal school timetable.

All trainings, sport, music and drama is suspended until further notice.

I would ask that any essential worker who needs to send their son to school tomorrow, and for the remainder of the week contacts Mr Grant Hansen

This is a significant setback in our nations fight against Coronavirus. But we have beaten it before, and we will beat it again.

I will update you as soon as I have any more information.

Ma te Atua tatou e manaaki God’s blessings


James Bentley

Health Advice

St Peter’s College Alert Level 2 Procedures for Students 

As per Ministry of Education guidelines for New Zealand Schools at Alter Level 2, we ask parents and students to note the following:

  • Please keep your son home if sick. Symptoms to monitor for are any respiratory symptoms such as a cold, a head cold, blocked ears, cough, sneezing, loss of taste, chills and a fever. Anyone with those symptoms should stay home and contact Healthline for advice, which may include getting tested for COVID-19. Anyone with these respiratory symptoms should not enter the College
  • All boys are asked to practice good hygiene (see posters below):
    • Regular handwashing:
      • Wash hands with soap for 20 seconds and dry thoroughly after visiting the bathroom
      • Sanitise hands on entry and exit from classrooms (this will be facilitated by teachers)
    • Coughing and sneezing into elbows
    • Students are encouraged to not share devices, equipment, food and drink
    • Regular washing of school uniform
  • Physical Distancing:
    • Ministry protocols for schools under Alert Level 2 stipulate that there does not need to be a specific measurement for physical distancing at schools.
    • However, students are asked to use common sense and to respect the physical space of other students and staff.
  • We suggest boys bring their own drink bottles. These can be refilled at school.
  • The Tuck Shop will be open, with controlled queuing.
  • Face masks are not required at school, but are mandatory on public transport for those aged 12 and over.
  • We ask parents to limit visits to the school property, and to sign-in at the main office if coming to school is necessary.
