Fire alarm in the night

Fri Apr 08 10:19am

Kia Ora 


Last night in the wee small hours the school fire alarm activated itself.


Please accept our apologies – we could not control it as it is an automated system managed by Wormalds and connected to the NZ Fire Service.


Although the Wormald’s technician has not appeared yet, we believe the fault developed during the power outage yesterday when we needed to close the school. It may be a failed or damaged back up battery system as there were a few on-off scenarios with the power as it was restored between 8.30am – 1.00pm yesterday. It will be resolved 🙂


Thank you so much


Murray

Seesaw is a platform for student engagement that inspires students of all ages to do their best, and saves teachers time! Students use creative tools to take pictures, draw, record videos and more to capture learning in a portfolio. Teachers find or create activities to share with students.The Seesaw platform is used for homework activities as well as in class work.

Parents are also notified by the class teacher about classroom and school activities and events via the Seesaw platform. Parents can also Seesaw their child’s teacher.

 

Families only have access to their child’s journal. This means you will see student work tagged with your child’s name and posts the teacher tags with ‘Everyone’. Families will also be able to see any comment made by another user on their child’s journal posts.
