This afternoon, the Prime Minister announced that the current New Zealand-wide lockdown will extend to at least midnight next Tuesday 24 August. This is to allow time for community cases to be identified and for ongoing contract tracing to be undertaken. I will continue to send out communications as updates come to hand. 

I’m very aware that commencing Trimester 3 under lockdown is not ideal. However, the staff have been working hard this week to ensure that your online classes will be engaging and valuable and I’m sure you’ll enjoy catching up with everyone, albeit online. As soon as we are able to re-open part or all of the campus, we will do so.

So, to confirm: Trimester 3 starts next Monday 23 Aug, with all classes online. You must not come to campus. Please check your Slack channels for the zoom link each day. And don’t hesitate to reach out to your Course Coordinator, to Student Support or to me should you have any questions.

Good luck and stay safe
