Important Information Newsletter - early finishes rest of week
Jul 5, 2022

We have fared better than many  in the Wellington area with fantastic support from our team of amazing relievers. However, we have made the difficult decision to close early for the last three days of term, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday this week. We are working with Metlink to arrange for the school buses to arrive earlier on these days and will provide you with updates and alternatives as we can.  Unfortunately the rural bus services have confirmed they have no flexibility and will run to their normal schedule.  Space will be made available at the College to accommodate students who are waiting for buses.

On Friday 8th July we end the term by celebrating Aotea College Diversity Day.  This is a wonderful day for us to acknowledge and cherish the diversity of our community.  All students who are well are expected to attend and to follow the following arrangement for the day.

  1. Dress in non-uniform options that express their culture and diversity (gold coin donation)
  2. Participate in a series of rotations that focus on building connections across the diversity of our community and college.
  3. Attend a talent show at break time. (gold coin entry)
  4. Finish their school day, and term, at 1:10pm

All Metlink school buses have been booked for a 1:10pm school finish on Friday.  Unfortunately the Rural Bus service can not accommodate the early finish so we will provide a space for students to stay until the regular service arrives.

Nga mihi nui,

The team at Aotea College
