Awanuiārangi COVID-19 Update!

Te Whare Wananga O

Whakatāne Campus

Given the move to COVID-19 Alert Level 4, all teaching and delivery of Awanuiārangi programmes will be suspended for four weeks until Thursday 23 April. All campuses will be closed for this period.

From next week, our Management Team will regroup online to find the best way forward for online delivery. We will keep staff and students updated on this and whether timeframes need to change.

We urge students to please stay enrolled. Studylink payments of allowances and loans will continue as normal.

Follow our facebook page and visit our COVID-19 webpage to keep updated.

Ngā manaakitanga, keep safe.

At-Home Fire Safety Checklist

Fire and Emergency from Fire and Emergency New Zealand

With everyone staying home, it’s now more important than ever for everyone to be fire-safe. People can find information on our website - fireandemergency.nz...

We’re heading into winter, and with households self-isolating together, there’ll be more cooking at home, and more use of open fires, heaters, and dryers - all things which can increase fire risk.

New Zealanders can be confident that Fire and Emergency is well-prepared and ready to respond to emergencies as usual during the nationwide self- isolation period.

Please call 111 if you have a fire, we will ask you whether anyone at the address is self-isolating or has a confirmed case of COVID-19. Where this is the case, we already have necessary measures in place to ensure everyone’s safety including protective clothing, gloves, masks, safety glasses and mask.
