CBHS
2. Lesson Links for some students http://moodle.cbhs.school.nz
-----------------------------------------------

It was mentioned yesterday that some students in some subjects would have
Moodle access to some learning content … also noted was that school is in
the early stages of developing these learning links and that many students
and staff will not be able to contribute to, or to access them. Boys will
know if they have used or trialed Moodle with any of their classes.

Staff have noted that there is Moodle material in the following areas -
Year 9, 10, 11 French
Electronics
Workshop and Graphics

English – check the English folder that is in the Departments folder on


the left-hand side of the Intranet homepage – there is information for
some classes.

This list will be updated as information is received.

Thursday 10th March


To Parents and Guardians

Good morning

- and everything is in place for the Monday morning start. All staff
will be at school tomorrow and amongst other tasks, reviewing the
procedures that should see a safe and settled re-start to the year.

Notices – in no particular order …

1. Monday morning – 14th March


-----------------------------------

School starts at the usual time of 8.45am with form time. Traffic flow is
very slow presently and allowance must be made for this to ensure school
is reached on time.

The bike stands are now at the eastern end of the tennis courts. The
Hall will not be used by students at this point and the few other areas of
possible concern identified by the engineers have been fenced off until
they are removed or repaired.

Boys are to bring their own bottles of drinking water. The tuckshop will
be open – well-boiled water will be used by the tuckshop staff for food
preparation, cleaning etc..

There will only be one class of boys who will not have access to their
lockers but there may be others whose home circumstances make having all
books and equipment at class difficult – there will be the opportunity to
indicate such issues at Form Time on Monday. The school guidance team
(Tom Matthews and Carole Sandford will be readily available to boys from
Monday – similarly year level Deans and Form Teachers); boys must not
hesitate to ask for advice or help.

2. PTA – Parent Teacher Association


----------------------------------------

Just a reminder of the meeting for the PTA members on Monday 14th, 7.30pm
in the staffroom.

3. Open Forum for Parents – Friday 10am – the Big Room


-------------------------------------------------------
Tomorrow at 10am parents with questions or concerns, or who would just
like to hear a little more about the school and how it is managing the
after-effects of the February quake, are welcome to come and hear from the
Headmaster and the Chair of the Board of Trustees, Mark Jordan; also
present will be the Opus project manager for the school’s earthquake
assessment and a structural engineer. This is an informal gathering with
the opportunity to ask questions.

4. Email addresses
--------------------

Over recent days email verification forms have been sent to parents who
have realised that their email addresses have not been on the school
database – hopefully the notes and the related attachment have been
self-explanatory.

A problem still relates to some Yahoo!Xtra users whose mail is ending up


in the spam box. The school is actively in contact with Yahoo!Xtra about
the problem.

From our technicians …

Xtra users can access their spam folder by using Xtra's webmail system:
1. Browse to: http://www.xtra.co.nz/
2. Click the "Email" link.
3. Login with xtra email address + password.
4. Click "Spam" at the left. This will list messages marked as spam.
5. (optional) Ticking one or more messages in the list, then clicking "Not
Spam", will move the messages into the inbox - and also cause future
messages (i.e. from the same sender) to end up in the inbox instead of the
Spam folder.

5. Further significant quakes


-------------------------------

Hopefully there won’t be any more, but if there are the school has
processes in place to respond.

Boys will practice on Monday our ‘Drop, Cover, Hold’ and can have
confidence that their teacher will respond appropriately – clear,
well-considered instructions will be provided.

While boys usually have cellphones confiscated if seen in class this will
not happen where there has been a significant aftershock. Once the
situation has been ascertained for safety and appropriateness boys will be
able to briefly text parents to confirm their wellbeing.

If there is the need to evacuate classrooms and it is not appropriate to


return to lessons boys will not be released from the school grounds until
collected by a parent or other adult who has the parent approval – the
departure must be recorded by the supervising teacher. Boys, individually
or as groups, will only be allowed to make their own way home if the
school is convinced that there is no risk involved and a parent would
consider it appropriate. Notice of the release of boys before the end of
the school day will be emailed to parents and placed on the school
website.

Young Writers
Hi Everyone

Thank you all for the very positive response to the idea of re-starting. Let's hope nothing happens
to foil our plans!

Here are the details:

Saturday classes

Usual time & place : Hagley Community College, entry via Waller Terrace gate, starting at 10.00
and finishing at 12.00

Give yourselves extra travelling time because the routes to and from Hagley may be congested or
subject to delays.

Tuesday After School

For the rest of this term we will base this class at Papanui Primary School. (Normal routines will
be re-established at St Margaret's College next term.)

Other options may have been available but at this school there is a very nice "pavilion" room and
we can be confident that it's available for the next 5 weeks, Mother Nature, the Ministry of
Education and other natural disasters permitting!!

Papanui Primary School is in Winters Road but the most accessible entrance is in FRASER
PLACE. This is the short street leading in from the top end of Cranford Street, and the school is
readily visible from that corner. Parking is plentiful. If anyone needs assistance in getting there,
please contact me.

With sport, music tuition etc disrupted for the rest of this term, some Tuesday people may be able
to attend Saturday classes. You are welcome to do so, but please let me know beforehand that
you are coming. Saturday people are also welcome to swap to Tuesdays if that suits you better.
Again, just let me know.

If you are receiving this and haven't yet been in touch, I hope you are OK and that we'll see you
soon. The aim of getting the classes up and running is to make a return to normal routines and to
have some fun.

Cheers

Glyn

Chis School 12/3/11


Earthquake Update Saturday March 12th
Article Date:
Saturday, March 12, 2011 - 13:30
Dear Parents, Students, Staff and Friends

As previously indicated Chisnallwood has emerged remarkably well from this ordeal.

All buildings (including the Admin and Staff areas) have all been approved as safe for
use.

As a staff we have cleaned the school up and are ready to open as soon as sewerage and
water is reconnected.

With regard the latter I have been told by the ministry of Education that we are a priority
school and that every effort is being made to allow us to open on the 21st of March (not
the 16th as previously indicated). Please note that we would have been ready to open
on the 16th as indicated ......the hold up is with sewerage.
Our consulting architects have also confirmed that the 21st is achievable and that we can
feel confident about opening fully on that date.

Many students are already receiving work from teachers via class wikis however I realize
that there are on going problems with power and access to computers.

Staff are also trying to contact students by telephone to keep them informed and to
reassure them that their school is almost ready to start again.

Provided all goes according to plan we hope to have a limited opening on Wednesday
and Thursday of next week (16th and 17th) for an hour and a half each day from 9.30 to
11 am.

Please note that it is likely there will still be no toilets or water... this is simply an
opportunity for you to bring your children to school if you wish to for all or part of this
time to try and get some semblance of normality going in a structured sense.

For those without computers or power school work can be picked up from class teachers
or from the school office at this time.

This website will be updated on Monday afternoon and the programmes for each of the
above days explained at this time so please spread the word as to what is happening.

Please also be aware that the 18th is a public holiday to allow people to attend the
Memorial Service at Hagley Park.

Our computer systems are still down at school however phone systems are operating and
manned during normal work hours. Please call if you have anything we can help with.

Best wishes to you all as you each deal with your own issues.

Yours Sincerely

Richard Paton

for people living in areas where sewers are in disrepair.
Chemical toilet systems can operate irrespective of weather conditions or geography.
These toilets are the best option while we are repairing the sewerage system.

To Students, Parents and Guardians

1. Extra Wednesday Class for all Students from tomorrow - finish 3.15pm
- all students at all year levels attend

2. Parent Post-Earthquake’ Forum – this Thursday (24th) 5.30 – 6.30pm

Extra Wednesday Classes for all Students – school finishes 3.15pm


----------------------------------------
- all students at all year levels attend

The School is now well back into teaching and learning - with a brief
glitch this morning as engineers checked buildings following an
aftershock; pleasingly there is no further damage. There is an added
time pressure given the length of the break, but staff and boys are
approaching this as a shared challenge and it is pleasing to note that
classes are well-focused and working hard.

To reclaim a little of the lost time a 5th period is being added to the
Wednesday timetable for at least the next 6 weeks – the 6 weeks during
which there is no Wednesday after-school sport given the loss of many
venues.

Wednesday classes will still start at 9.30am, as in the past, and morning
interval and lunchtime will remain unaltered.
For all students Period 5 will be from 2.20 to 3.15pm.
------------

For the boys …

Pd 5 Wed 23rd March - same class as you have on a Thurs Pd 5


Pd 5 Wed 30th March - Mon Pd 2
Pd 5 Wed 6th April - Tues Pd 4
Pd 5 Wed 13th April - Fri Pd 3
Pd 5 Wed 4th May - Term 2 Mon Pd 5
Pd 5 Wed 11th May - Wed Pd 2

Time is being ‘made up’ as is possible and appropriate - with the Hall
yet to be repaired there will be few assemblies allowing longer teaching
periods on Tuesdays and Thursdays, Workday, which was to be last Monday,
was cancelled, … other calendar events are presently being considered.

Parent Post-Earthquake Forum – this Thursday 24th March 5.30 – 6.30pm


----------------------------

A 'CBHS Parent Post-Earthquake Forum' will be held this Thursday at


5:30-6:30 in the Big Room for parents who are noticing signs of
post-eq-stress at home.

There will be a brief presentation on the possible signs and effects of


post earthquake stress and Carole Sandford, a specialist in trauma
counselling, will present on various ways to help students get back on
their feet, followed by a Q & A time.

The remainder of the hour will be an open discussion on how we as a school


community could best aid this process of recovery. We want to better
understand the challenges this quake has brought into your homes and to
share information on the challenges we are facing at school. The hope is
that as we combine our ideas, needs and resources, our whole community
will become stronger together.

This will be a great chance to meet other parents and to meet staff involved
in the pastoral care of your children at school.

Refreshments will be provided so if you could RSVP to


matthewst@staff.cbhs.school.nz for catering purposes.
