Waatea School School Newsletter Success is not the work of one but the work of many. Kia Ora e te whanau,  Welcome to the end of Week 3! It has been a very interesting week as we continue to navigate through a lot of sicknesses that are beginning to circulate through the community. It is important to remember to keep your children home if they are showing any signs of COVID-19 symptoms. This ensures that whatever is spreading is somewhat contained at school. There has been so far, a gastro bug (Stomach pains, vomiting & diarrhea) if your child has any of these symptoms they must stay at home for a minimum of 48hours. If your child has a temperature, cough, or sore throat, they must stay home and get tested. We are continuing to sanitize, clean, and have masks on hand for children to use if they choose to. We are wanting to remain open this term, and to do so we have to protect our tamariki and staff. We appreciate your support. Have a great weekend! Ngā mihi Whaea Zara Acting Principal Nau mai haere mai Whaea Kenya! Welcome to Waatea School Whaea Kenya! Whaea Kenya is the new kaiako for Rongomātane.
