Auckland Primary Principals Association president on plan for schools
Listen now
President of Auckland Primary Principal's Association Stephen Lethbridge told Checkpoint if students return to school on November 15, he wants to see some clear guidelines around the "gold standard" for health and safety. "We're just really keen to engage with the Ministry about what that might be, what the requirements are, and how we can translate that into daily life at schools." Lethbridge said the last month of the school term is really important for students, and each school will look at those weeks differently. "We'll be looking at socialising, getting back to how we learn at school, reconnecting with teachers and moving on with learning."
