Opunake High School @ Alert Level 2 – Vaccination

Kia ora,
The response by New Zealanders to this latest outbreak has been strong, with high rates of testing and more and more people getting vaccinated.

If we were to have a case of COVID-19 in our school, public health authorities will want to know if we are a school with a high vaccination rate. This information will then be used as part of the local health authority’s risk assessment. The more highly vaccinated we are (staff and eligible students), the less likely it will be that we will have to close down for a long period of time, or we might not need to close at all. We are also doing our part by working toward all our staff being vaccinated.

We will therefore need to know if your child has had their first or second vaccine dose or is exempted from being vaccinated. This information will be held by us in accordance with the Privacy Act and will only be shared with public health authorities.

We are therefore getting our data collection system in place and will get in touch with you again very soon.

More than 5.7 million doses of the Pfizer vaccine have now been given in New Zealand (as at 7 October 2021):
53% are fully vaccinated (2 doses) = 2.2 million New Zealanders
81% have had their first dose = 3.4 million New Zealanders
86% of Aucklanders have had their first dose
61% of Aucklanders have had their second dose

As at 3 October 2021, 86% of Pacific Peoples and 90% of Māori aged 65 and over had received their first dose (compared with 93%of non-Māori and Non-Pacific) and our average daily numbers for Māori getting their first dose have increased by 69% in the last fortnight.

While the signs are really pleasing, clearly the job isn’t done. We have therefore attached some information to help support everyone who is eligible to get vaccinated.

The two best things we can to do keep our community as safe as possible is to get tested if we are feeling unwell and get everyone who is eligible vaccinated.

Students travelling by school buses will be required to wear masks.

See you all very soon! Stay safe, and stay connected.

Ngā mihi,
Andrea Hooper Carr
Principal/Tumuaki

BENCHMARK EXAM WEEK.

As it's coming to the end of the school holidays, next week is also our Benchmark Exam Week.
It is important for all students to participate in these, for the practice, but also because grades in these exams are what derived grades are based on in the event students are unable to sit the NCEA exams later in the term.

The timetable for Benchmark exams is below:

• Students have exam leave in the morning before their exam or the previous afternoon if their exams take place in the following morning.
• Students may study at school in the library during their exam leave.
• Uniform is required for Benchmark Exam week.
• Students not in exams or on exam leave continue to attend classes and attend their exams as needed.
