David Street School


Friday 10th April

Tena koutou katoa, 

We hope everyone is well and safe at home. We will begin our distance learning on Wednesday the 15th April which will include the following.

Learning Challenges:

Learning Challenges are fun hands on learning opportunities which are suitable for children and parents of all ages. These can be done by the children with or without parent supervision. They are also designed for you to do as much or as little as you choose. Each challenge will have a picture with instructions and will be accompanied by a video with a teacher explaining the task.

The first challenge will be posted on the David Street School Website by 10am, Wednesday 15th April. New challenges will then be posted every Monday, Wednesday & Friday until we return to school.

Please take photos or videos of your creations and learning and share via email with your teachers if you would like to. This is optional.

Extra Learning Tasks:

In addition to the Learning Challenges, each team will share one Learning Worksheet every Tuesday and Thursday by 10am. This is optional for those that would like some extra learning relating to Reading, Writing & Maths. 

Class Catch Ups:

Once a week students in the Middle and Senior School will have the option of joining their teacher online in a video chat using Google Hangouts. This is a chance for students to have face to face (online) contact with their classmates and teachers. Students in the Junior School will be invited to join a class Facebook page where teachers will post live Facebook and prerecorded messages.

Alternatively please use email to contact your teachers, who will be available at times between 9am & 3pm depending on their own family commitments.

Senior School students will have their Gmail (Google email) activated on Wednesday 15th April. This allows them to email anyone within the David Street School system with an email address that ends with @davidst.school.nz.

If you have any questions please contact your child’s teacher by email. Please bear with us as we navigate this new style of learning.

Stay safe,

Kind Regards, 

The David Street School Team
