TERM 2 - Starts today!!!
DISTANCE SCHOOLING starts for all students throughout New Zealand. This is certainly new territory for many of us so I am sure there will be some teething problems as we go.

Programmes have been prepared by teachers in recent weeks assisted by special shows screening on TVNZ's usual 2+1 channel and on Maori TV.

Some of parents may find it difficult helping their children learn at home. Psychologist Nigel Latta says “If you're trying to juggle work and a bunch of other things and the kids don't want to do it and it's just adding stress, DON'T DO IT!!! It will do your child no harm at all,”.
