The return to school under Alert Level 2 does not mean an immediate return to community sport, unfortunately. With the 10-person gathering limits that are currently in place all winter codes have agreed to a three-phase return to sport.
Phase 1 – Get Ready to Play
Phase 2 – Prepare to Play
Phase 3 – Return to Play
The Get Ready to Play phase (the phase we are currently in) is where community sports groups and facilities plan the measures that need to be taken to ensure they are prepared to safely move into the Prepare to Play phase. These measures include what must be done to meet guidelines in place for contact tracing, physical distancing, and hygiene and sanitation requirements.
It is at the Prepare to Play stage that sports practices are likely to begin and when school netball and basketball trials will be completed. The exact timings regarding when training can commence will be subject to government updates on numbers permitted for grassroots sport.
Phase 3 is when we return to regular sports competition. No dates have been confirmed for Return to Play, but we are anticipating competitions starting at either the end of Term 2 or the beginning of Term 3. These dates will be determined by the various sporting organisations based on advice from Sports NZ and government ministries.
While we wait to get to Phase 2 – Prepare to Play, it is an ideal time to work on your personal fitness. We encourage students to maintain a good level of fitness to reduce the chances of injury when we move into Phase 2 and beyond. Please check the St Peter’s College Sport Facebook page for regular updates related to the resumption of sports. Thank you for your patience.
We are still taking registrations for basketball for the 2020 season. If your child would like to play this season, they can register by adding their name to the list in the Fish Bowl.
We are very short of basketball coaches again this season. Each team needs to have a coach/manager, otherwise the teams cannot be entered. If you can help, please contact Kathryn Pinckney on
It is great to be back at school and working with the students on their learning plans.
Hokonui Tertiary High School are straight back into their course with students leaving on Thursday and Friday to their respective courses.
Gateway students are taking a little longer to ease back into their work placements, which is understandable considering the upheaval our local businesses have had to deal with over the past weeks.
Year 13’s will be starting to look at their options for next year. Year 13 students will not be disadvantaged around liaison visits from the different tertiary providers. They are providing webinars and zoom meetings to answer questions and information around the subjects and costs involved for study in 2021. The students are encouraged to check out the different websites and contact the liaison officer with any queries they may have.
For all students, MoneyHub is a great FREE resource for all students who are at school or planning to move on at the end of the year. A resource they have available for students is their Scholarship section which details all scholarships available in New Zealand for students moving into tertiary study. Go to:
Money Hub has also launched a new section for students still at school called Money in a Nutshell. Here is what it contains:
Creating a life within your means is incredibly important. You can save, buy a property and enjoy things that you value. The alternative, spending more than you earn, is, in no uncertain terms, a recipe for disaster. Eventually, the long-term debt created to meet short-term needs hits a brick wall, and bad things happen.
Why should I read this guide?
We’ve put this guide together for one reason – to give you the tools and information so you can develop a great relationship with money. We cover what we consider to be the core foundations of financial education. And best of all, we’ve done our very best to make it as engaging as we can.
