Ministry of Education Learning Resources Update

Today the Minister of Education Chris Hipkins announced supports for home learning. 

They will include;

  • Hard copy learning packs for ALL children in Years 1-6. These learning packs will be delivered to our families home addresses. The packs have Reading/Maths and other learning area activities and also have stationery (pens, exercise book) for children to use. ALL Flat Bush School learners  can expect to recieve a learning pack in the next few days.
  • Two new TV channels that will broadcast education-related content.
  • Increasing the number of students with internet access and devices. They will be starting by delivering 2000 modems this week and begin delivering the first batch of 17,000 devices. The Minister was very clear in sharing that Year 11-13 High School students will be the first group to have internet access and devices. We are still waiting to hear if we are going to be part of this rollout.
  • More on line resources for families on their https://www.learningfromhome.govt.nz/  website.

We understand that ALL of our Flat Bush School whānau would be keen to have access to the internet and a device for their child or children. We have shared with the Ministry of Education that message very clearly, and done everything that they have asked, to try and make that happen. Thank you to all FBS whānau for demonstrating patience in this matter, it is greatly appreciated.
