The government has informed us that the country will be going into Alert Level 4 effective 17th August 11.59pm and for Auckland this is for 7 days initially. This means that our school will be closed for at least the next 7 days. No one will be allowed onto the school site over this time and all gates will be locked.

Our children and staff, together with the Board of Trustees and our whānau welcome you to Blockhouse Bay Primary School. Our children enjoy many diverse opportunities to learn supported by our community. We encourage you to participate in the numerous opportunities to take part in the life of the school.
Such opportunities include attending assemblies, special school occasions and celebrations, fundraising, parent and whānau conferences, support for Te Manawa, our Library and Makerspace and helping with school trips and within the classrooms. Participation in activities such as these will enable you to become familiar with the school and its community, and to experience the vitality of the school as a learning place.
One cannot separate the home and the school learning environment, as the two combine to support a child to learn and become a happy, well adjusted student. Teachers give professional assistance, encouragement and advice and support the student's learning and development. The school has a part to play in the growing up process of your child, but this is done in tandem with the home.
