Digital Learning at St Michael's School
All New Zealand Schools have been asked to provide information to the Ministry of Education about our ability to deliver home learning packages to all students in the event the government directs nation wide school closures.
The St Michael's School management team is committed to ensuring that we are prepared for this event so that your child still maintains a connection to the learning.
We are interested in finding out more about your family situation, your priorities for learning as well as where our team will need to provide assistance to make this a success.
Please do complete the following survey so that we are able to design a system that is fit for purpose should we find ourselves in a school closure situation.
