Learning From Home
Online Learning During the Covid-19 Shutdown
Lockdown information 17 August 2021
1. The Prime Minister announced tonight that we are in stage 4 lockdown for the next 3 days. We hope that will be all but need to be prepared for it to be longer. So we are back into lockdown learning.
For more detail surrounding how online learning will work see the information below.
Expectations surrounding online learning
Online learning will bring us new, interesting challenges over the next month or so. We have compiled a document which outlines expectations of staff, students and parents for online learning. Please click on image to the right to see what those expectations are.
Where do I find work that has been set?
The primary place for Kāpiti College students to access their school work is on Google Classroom. We are fortunate that the great majority of our teachers are already using Google Classroom on a daily basis.
If you want to know what it is that the student(s) in your care should be doing you can find out on their Google Classroom. Each student will have a different online classroom for each subject meaning that each student will be in 5-6 different classroom.
Teachers are able to give you access to the work that is posted on there. If you wish to be added as a guardian email the teacher in charge of that class directly or ask the students in your care to add you as a guardian.
Communicating with teachers
We still want to be able to provide pastoral care for all of our students. Although this can be more difficult remotely the key adults in the lives of our students still very much want to help out. Our senior management team, deans and form teachers will continue to support students online. Please make contact with any of them if a student in your care needs help and support. A list of key people in the pastoral team can be found here.
Our students counselors Rysz and Mahalia will still be available to support student needs. The counselors will continue to work with many of the students that they already see. If you has a concern about a student at our school a referral can be made by filling in this form.
Extra supported needed?
We realise that for some people in the school community this will not be an easy time. If you need any further support there is information available on the documents below.
