Glendowie College is currently closed to all students and staff. Please go to our COVID-19 page for the latest information.
This page gives you information about what we're doing at Glendowie to keep our students active online - academically, physically and socially.
Online learning is provided on the following platforms:
We want to make sure our students stay connected to each other and the school. To assist with this we're doing the following:
At Glendowie College, we're not trying to replicate normal school. Online learning will be different. We're not running set lesson times or taking attendance. We don't think we need to and we don't think it would work.
Our sports staff are regularly posting ideas for students and whānau to stay active while at home. Hopefully it's fun and a break from work, TV, etc. Please send Lydia and the team videos or photos, and they'll try to post them.
We're aware that parents will have questions or concerns. Please contact the following people if you have any questions:
Our ability to provide pastoral care and guidance will be limited over the next few weeks. However, our Deans and Assistant Deans remain available for students and/or whānau to contact them.
Similarly our Guidance Counsellors can't meet physically with students. They have already arranged to stay in touch with many of the students that they have been working with - by phone, email or possibly video conferencing. It will be difficult for them to work with new clients due to the circumstances. However, if you have special concerns or want some advice, please contact your child's Dean or a Deputy Principal.
