Friday 3rd April: Gumboot Friday

Why gumboots?

For people struggling with depression, it can feel like walking through mud every day.

We are fortunate to have a team of staff and our Live 4 Tomorrow group who support the mental wellbeing of our school family, but many don’t have that option.

In a time of isolation today should be the day that you contact that friend you’ve been meaning to message – or you could go retro and call them…

Let’s make Gumboot Friday an excuse to connect to support the mental wellbeing of our classmates and friends.

If you would like to donate the link is below.

Gumboot Up, New Zealand! Help us raise funds for kiwi kids to get free mental health counselling and support when they urgently need it.

Message from the Ministry of Education


While we are seeing mass school shutdowns elsewhere in the world, in New Zealand we don’t yet have community transmission of COVID-19 – so there isn’t currently a public health reason to do so here.

Pre-emptive school closures may have unintended consequences – for example, children may need to be cared for by vulnerable grandparents, or they may be put in other social settings that could make things worse.

Medical Officers of Health have the authority to close a school. They will only do so if there is a medical reason for this or after a confirmed case in the school. In that instance, they will need to close it for a short period of time while they determine if there is any risk to others.

We are, however, planning for temporary closures. Our decisions are based on evidence and very robust health advice – the World Health Organisation has confirmed that the risk to children remains low and parents should continue to send their kids to schools and early learning centres.
