As Auckland is now is Alert Level 2, classes will now resume at Selwyn Community Education with some exceptions.
We are emailing most course groups to confirm their classes will restart in the classroom this week. For the small number of courses that cannot resume this week, we are also emailing with new information.
Level 2 Protocols
- One metre physical distancing within classrooms
- One metre physical distancing in hallways and common spaces
- Cleaning learning spaces before and after night school
We ask for your cooperation in meeting these protocols by
- maintaining distance from others and their belongings, desks and chairs
- accessing your classrooms externally this week (rather than using internal school corridors)
- scanning our QR code (in all classrooms)
- use the hand sanitiser provided in all classrooms
- wear a mask if you wish (optional but recommended by the Ministry of Health)
- observing normal safe hygiene practices – sneezing into your elbow crease, stay home if you’re unwell (email us and we’ll forward class notes), wash your hands frequently
Courses that WILL NOT resume this week:
- Tai Chi evening classes – postponed another week
6am Sunday 28 February 2021 updated
Auckland is again in Covid-19 Alert Level 3, for a period of at least a week. This means we are unable to run courses on site. Some of our courses will run via zoom during this time. Other courses will be delayed by a week.
We are in the process of contacting each course group individually with an update via email. We ask for your patience as this process will take some time. We expect to complete this task today, Sunday.
Please continue to check your email regularly as we will email as soon as you can return to class.
A reminder: as we operate within a Controlled Educational Environment, we will be able to resume, with appropriate safety measures, in Alert Level Two.
We’ll provide more detail about this closer to the time.
Stay well everyone.

Alert Level 2 (if and when)
