Welcome to Ponsonby Primary


Goal Setting day – Thursday the 3rd of February 2022 


We are looking forward to having the students back at school. As we are in the Red setting of the COVID-19 Protection framework, we will need to put some additional protocols in place to ensure that our students and staff are safe. The good news is that the whole school will be able to return together on the first day of school.

We are still receiving information from the MOE on a daily basis, so the Senior Leadership Team is currently working through the protocols and hope to have all our information prepared for you in due course.

Thursday 3rd February is our goal setting day and this will still go ahead, the only change will be that parents will not be able to attend the sessions with their child in their classrooms.  We ask that the children come through these allocated gate areas and be picked up from outside these gates.  These will be the allocated gates for the children to use under the Red light setting. This will be for morning and after school.

Yr 1- 3 to use the Bottom Gate

Yr 3 – 6 to use the Top Gate

Our teachers of year 1 children will bring the children down to the Bottom field at 11am.

The timings for goal setting is staggered as usual depending on the surname of your child. 

Year 1 children will attend in the morning from 9am – 11am

Yr 2 – 6 children to attend based on surname initial, below are times for you goal session: 

Surname beginning with A – G (inclusive) 9am – 10am 

Surname beginning with H – N (inclusive) 10.15am – 11.15am

Surname beginning with O – Z (inclusive) 11.30am – 12.30pm

To ensure we are following Covid-19 Safety protocols, please:

  • Scan in using the Covid-19 Tracer App at the School Hall

  • Wear a mask

  • Use hand sanitiser that is available

  • Maintain 1m physical distancing
