Kia ora RVS,
First day of spring 2020! It has been lovely feeling the warmth in the sun over the last couple of day, let alone the warmth of The Son... God is always at work in us and I am humbled as I see His handiwork in our students on a daily basis. It has been a difficult winter but He has remained faithful and I am very grateful for that.
As you are aware, we are still in Alert Level 2. Please continue to scan the QR codes set up at the entrance of the school if you come onsite. Please also keep ill students at home.
The Middle School Production Esther is showing next week. This may well still be Level 2 meaning we are limited to 100 non school staff or students. See the Ministry of Education's directive below:
Again, the rules for gatherings apply to plays and performances at Alert Level 2. If you keep the cast and backstage crew separate from the audience for the duration of the event, you can have up to 100 people in your audience (10 in Auckland). In other words on stage and back stage is one defined space, and the seating out front is another defined space. MOE
This means we now require you to book your tickets through the school office by calling, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by popping in. Spaces are available for all 4 sessions but please book. This way we can monitor numbers in order to comply with the regulations. Spaces will fill quickly. We will also endeavour to film the show for those who are unable to make it.
We look forward to the imminent start of building on the North-East corner of the property. The area will be fenced off for safety and access for builders will be the same as last time, near the driveway entrance. Many safety measures will be in place to keep students safe during construction. More information on the exciting new building will follow soon. Doug Clark can be seen below installing power, comms and water to the new site. Doug volunteers a huge amount of time and how much we appreciate his contribution can not be understated.
Proud Principal of Richmond View School.
