Learning@HOME Guidelines for Whānau | Parents

When Learning@Home is required we are ready to continue providing high quality teaching and learning to our students. However, at SHGC we thrive on face to face relationships and interactions, and building community.

We won’t always get it right but we have aligned our plans to our vision, mission and virtues so we have good intentions, and we continue to support your daughter to strengthen her learning and well-being. It is essential that neither is compromised. This is why we are keeping Learning@Home simple, familiar, flexible and with reasonable expectations of students, staff and whānau. We are confident that our technology is capable of supporting our plans.

Please refer to our Learning@Home Guidelines for Students here, as well as our Learning@Home Guidelines for Kaiako | Teachers. [PDF – 94 KB]

School Karakia
We have a school karakia which we pray together in CCM and assembly. You might like to use it to start your day:

Me inoi tātou (let us pray)

Ki te ingoa
O te Matua
O te Tamaiti
O te Wairua Tapu

May the blessing of tō tātou kaihanga be upon us all today
May we be God’s presence for each other.
May our kura be a tohu o tūmanako
May we use our heads to know
Our hearts to love
And our hands to serve

And so today I choose to live life wholeheartedly
And I choose to be present in all I do

O Sacred Heart, O fount of love
Make us like thee forever more.

Ki te ingoa
O te Matua
O te Tamaiti
O te Wairua Tapu

Kia ora.
