A guide to Te Kura services and operations at COVID-19 Alert Levels
This guide is to give our ākonga (students), whānau and other members of our community an overview of our services and operations at different COVID-19 alert levels.
The measures below are specific to Te Kura, please ensure you comply with all advice from the Ministry of Health with regards to your own personal and others health (e.g. face coverings).
