Letter to Rosehill Community

Distance learning from home:

Students should follow the normal school timetable as much as possible. Some of our teachers have their own family considerations and will have made contact through Google classroom to say when they will be available online.

Each teacher will identify the timetable periods they will be online for instruction. There will be two periods designated per timetable cycle and students are expected to join those at the start of the period.

Work and instructions will be posted on Google Classroom and should be followed. 

Internal assessments will continue where possible during distance learning. Senior students who have assessment due dates in the near future are encouraged to complete and submit their work if they can. Where necessary, extensions to deadlines will be given on a case by case basis either during lock down or when we return.

The timing of the practice examinations will be dependent upon when we return to school and our assessment of how effective students’ learning from home has been. At this time, there has been no change to the NZQA external exams in November and December.

Manaakitanga Friday is a catch up day and lessons won’t be posted. There will be challenges students can do as a tutor group on instagram.


All College Sport events and activities scheduled will not take place.

School Buses

No school buses are operating during level  3.


School Opening

Students in Years 11-13 are to learn from home.

Students in Years 9 or 10, under the age of 14 and the children of essential workers may attend school. If your child is in this category, please check the end of this letter for procedures.


We wish you and your whanau well during this difficult time. Stay safe.
