UPDATED 05/03/21

As per the Prime Minister’s announcement, we are returning to Alert Level 2 from 6am Sunday 7 March.

We look forward to welcoming students back to school, but any student who is showing any signs of illness, must stay at home.

All other students are expected to be at school from Monday 8 March. Timetable Day 3.

Students should go straight to period 1.

  • Use of face coverings, while not mandatory at school or on school transport, is supported.
  • Fundamental public health measures continue to apply at every alert level:
  • Physical distancing (not touching and not breathing on each other at Alert Level 2)
  • Hand hygiene
  • Cough and sneeze etiquette
  • Students using school transport services are exempt from wearing face masks/coverings. Again we encourage students to wear a mask on school buses. However, if a student uses public transport, it will be compulsory for everyone aged 12 and over to wear a face covering under Alert Level 2 and above.
  • The Canteen is open with a full range of food, individually wrapped, for students to choose from. They will operate with additional hygiene and social distancing measures and their staff will be wearing PPE gear. There will be separate order/payment and food collection windows.



Firstly, Rosehill College would like to pass on all our aroha and support to our whanau and the community during this difficult time. 


Kia hora te marino                                    May peace be widespread

Kia whakapapa pounamu te moana         May the sea be like the greenstone

Hei huarahi ma tatou i te rangi nei            A pathway for us all this day

Aroha atu, aroha mai                                Give love, receive love

Tatou i a tatou katoa                                  Let us show respect for each other


Latest update

February 2021

Kia ora koutou, Talofa lava

The Government announced on the 28th that the whole of Auckland will move from Alert Level 1 to Alert Level 3 for the next 7 days from 6am Sunday 28th February.

That means that where possible you should keep your children home from school for this period.

We will be open for those of you who have no other options but to send your children to school and we will have safety precautions in place to look after them. Please ask them to go directly to the Hall and sit 2 seats and 2 rows apart.

We are activating our distance learning plan from Monday morning, as we did when we have been in previous lock downs. First and foremost we want to stay connected to you and your Tamariki.

COVID-19 continues to be a factor we need to consider, and I assure you we have a robust plan and will do everything we need to for your children and your wider family and whānau.

If the situation changes, we will be in touch again. Please contact us if you have any concerns or questions.

Letter to Rosehill Community


If you have questions can you please direct your inquiries in the following way:

Teaching and Learning:

During any lockdown phase students week will look like the following:

Monday to Thursday = Distance Learning

Teachers will set work in chunks of two periods. Online meetings with teachers will occur during their normal timetabled periods only if required. Teachers will post if a meeting is to occur and if it is a Google Meet, Google Hangout, or other format. 

Friday = Student Wellbeing:

The first purpose for Fridays is for Tutor Group Teachers and Heads of Houses to check on students academic progress and wellbeing.

Students will connect to a variety of House challenges available on their Tutor Group Google classroom or House Instagram page to promote connection, and fun and break up the lockdown blues.

Fridays will not have set academic lessons but students can continue their work at their own pace.


Specific questions from students for their teacher must be done via their specific subject Google Classroom

General queries, please contact the Head of House of your child and they will direct you to the correct forum
