COVID-19 Information

Dear Parents and Caregivers of Green Bay School

As you may have heard, the Prime Minister of New Zealand has announced that all schools will be closed from tomorrow, Tuesday 24 March (except for the children of essential workers such as our doctors, nurses, ambulance drivers, police, and people who work in the food supply chain) – this will givethem time to plan. This will be temporary, and schools will close entirely on Wednesday 25 March.

From Monday 18 May 2020, we move to Alert Level 2 and school will reopen for all GBS students.

The health and wellbeing of our staff and students is our priority.

Please make note, if your child is sick, you are to keep them at home. Do not send them to school.

In order that students are fully well and able to return to school without spreading their coughs and colds to everyone else, we recommend the following durations:

Diarrhoea & Vomiting Illnesses

Children/students are to stay at home until 48 hours after the last episode of diarrhoea or vomiting.


Children/students are to stay at home until they are well, generally 1-4 days (an average of 2 days).

Sore Throat/Strep Throat

Children/students are to stay at home until they are well or have received antibiotic treatment for at least 24 hours (strep-throat).

Please read the attached letter from our Principal, Anand Muthoo.

If you have any questions or concerns, please make contact with us via email or telephone 09 8176666 in the first instance.
